Pimento and Havarti Grilled Cheese with Dijon Mayo

Happy Sunday night! The weekends always go by too fast! We had a blast this last weekend of October! Here are a few highlights…

Carving Pumpkins

Playing in Decatur with friends!

I made this amazing sandwich today for lunch. I took two pieces of sunflower bread (from Publix) and spread one side with pimento cheese (store bought brand Palmetto Cheese with bacon) and the other side with one tablespoon both of mayo and Dijon mustard. Then I added 2 slices of Havarti cheese and sandwiched it together. Then I grilled it up in a bit of butter.

⅓ cup sugar
Pinch salt
½ loaf sweet egg bread, cubed-  I used apple bread 
2 eggs, beaten

Directions
1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Butter a medium sized baking dish and fill it with bread.

2. In a small saucepan over low heat, warm milk, butter, vanilla, sugar and salt. Continue cooking just until butter melts; cool.

Swedish Meatballs

Hey guys! I made this last night for dinner and got two thumbs up from everyone! It does not really photograph well, but the recipe turned out pretty yummy. You can make your own meatballs, but it is a Monday night and no one really has time for that, so I used frozen ones. I am also researching ways that I can use my crock pot, so be on the lookout for that.

Ingredients

Ingredients
1 bag of frozen meatballs
1 tbsp. olive oil
5 tbsp. butter
3 tbsp. flour
2 cups beef broth
1 cup heavy cream
1 Tablespoon Worcestershire sauce
1 tsp. Dijon mustard
salt and pepper to taste

Directions

1. In a large skillet heat olive oil and 1 Tablespoon butter. Add the meatballs and cook turning continuously until brown on each side and mostly cooked throughout. They may still be a bit frozen in the center, but you are going to add them back in for a few minutes at the end. Take out the meatballs.

2. Add 4 Tablespoons butter and flour to skillet and whisk until brown. Slowly stir in beef broth and heavy cream. Add Worcestershire sauce and Dijon mustard and bring to a simmer until sauce starts to thicken. Salt and pepper to taste.

3. Add the meatballs back to the skillet and simmer for another 1-2 minutes. I served them over egg noodles.

Steak and Potatoes- A Love Story

There once was a girl. The girl was a vegetarian for a very long time. Then one day she ate some steak and never looked back. Here are some pretty pictures of steak and potatoes just so you understand the loss she had for such a long time.

Crockpot BBQ Chicken

Hey guys! I made this meal  last night for the family. It was so easy. All I did was put six chicken breasts in the crockpot with a bottle of barbecue sauce. I added some salt, pepper, and onion powder. I cooked it on low all day long, and when I got home from work, dinner was almost ready. All I had to do was shred the chicken. We put it on buns and made BBQ sandwiches. I served with a side of mac & cheese and broccoli.
