It’s about that time for another WILW post, dontcha think?
1. Two nights in a row of cooking some of my favorite tried and true recipes.
Sloppy Joes, that I’m renaming Super Spicy Sloppy Joes. I used less spice and hot sauce than my recipe called for and my mouth was still on fire two bites into the sandwich.
For the second week in a row, Breakfast for Dinner was on the menu in this household. This time, the meal was much more savory than sweet.
If you have a man in your life that can’t bear the thought of a meatless meal, bacon or sausage patties make good additions to the sandwich.
I couldn’t tell you the last time I ordered something from McDonald’s. That is fine with me, because I really want as little to do with it as possibly anyway. Whenever I hear the stories about people leaving a McDonald’s burger out for years and years and the food barley changes in look, it makes me want to eat a fresh green salad, extra veggies please.
I was the princess of 6-piece Chicken McNuggets with sweet and sour sauce when I was a kid. Princess, I tell ya. And then there were the Sausage and Egg McMuffins which were pretty delish, until the McGriddles came along. OMG, sooo good on the tongue. But then I felt like I was going to have a heart attack after eating one. Not so good.
Now that my Mickey-D’s days are past me, I find myself missing those classic breakfast sandwiches. Every once in awhile I’ll make breakfast sandwiches on bread or bagels. After making Biscuits and Gravy this weekend, I was left with some spare biscuits. Perfect for a McDonald’s remake without the guilt…or heart attack.
A few months ago I was introduced to the cheese and apple combination. Now that I think about it, I always knew the two went well together. Cheese plates are often served with fruits like apples and grapes. And I love a good cheese plate (wine required).
I was pleasantly surprised when I tried the sandwich for the first time, but kind of forgot about it until yesterday. I didn’t have any regular bread in the house, but did have Arnold Sandwich Thins. I love those things by the way. So that was the first variation. The second? I have been dying for a grilled cheese sandwich, and thought a grilled apple and cheese sandwich would be just as good!
