I spent my Sunday 1) in the kitchen and 2) in Nicoleâ€™s living room, engaging in an epic catch-up sesh. The activities kind of overlapped because my oven is still broken, and I needed a place to bake my gingerbread cookies. So I hauled my dough to Nicoleâ€™s, popped my little guys in her oven, and settled into her couch. It was a great way to spend a Sunday, indeed.
My kitchen shows the damage from making 36 cookies, though.
If you come help me clean, Iâ€™ll give you a gingerbread man!
Or you can make your own â€“ I love this recipe from Martha Stewart and make a batch every year, for a bake sale or a Christmas celebration. They are definite crowd pleasers.
I also made some cranberry-orange relish. Not sure if it turned out yet, though.
And last, but not least, I made these amazing grilled cheese sandwiches. Grilled cheese, in my opinion, is a highly underrated sandwich. As long as you use good, super sharp cheddar â€“ the Kraft squares just donâ€™t do it for me â€“ you are destined for a great sandwich.
However, I also love to mix in unique toppings with my sandwiches. Such as:
Thin apple slices
A drizzle of pesto
Fresh basil leaves
Chopped dried apricots
As a matter of fact, I might go eat another grilled cheese sandwich for dinnerâ€¦
Did you spend some of Sunday in the kitchen? What did you make?
