Greek Salad Grilled Cheese for #SundaySupper

Did you know? The month of April happens to be National Grilled Cheese Month! That seems like cause to celebrate, if you ask me!

Greek Salad Grilled Cheese

Grilled cheese is one of those comfort foods I can’t get enough of. I have fond memories from childhood – my grilled cheese sandwiches were most likely made with American cheese slices and soft white bread. There’s something so nostalgic about it and I’m sure it would still taste yummy nowadays…dipped in some tomato soup, perhaps? However, fancy grilled cheeses have been all the rage lately, and the flavor combinations seem endless. Grilled cheese is much more than just white bread and cheddar, and the Sunday Supper crew is going to introduce you to some awesome sandwich ideas today.

Vegetable Enchilada Lasagna

I did it again: I made another lasagna that seemingly weighed in at 20 pounds.

Ok, that might be a bit of an exaggeration, but hey: saying this one feeds a crowd is not a stretch whatsoever. It’s funny how adding a few ingredients here and there adds up to an enormous end product.

As much as I love Italian food, I thought I’d switch it up with a more Mexican style meal. I love enchiladas, but sometimes I get frustrated with the individual rolling of each piece. Why not just layer all of the goodies lasagna-style? The flavors and texture are the same, but the process is easier (for me at least). Of course, you have the ability to customize your enchilada lasagna to your taste preferences. You could add meat (I wanted to keep mine vegetarian), some black beans, maybe a few leaves of spinach…so many choices. I will say that I was very pleased with the flavor combination I created with these ingredients. I served my slices up with a light spring mix salad tossed with honey lime vinaigrette. It definitely has me thinking of summertime (tacos/Mexican food always does for me)!

Goodbye, sweater weather!

I am having a hard time processing the fact that today is April 1. Of 2014. How in the world has time flown by so fast? The year is now a quarter of the way over. Summer will soon be here (I admit I’m looking forward to a few weeks off from work…), I can feel it.

I’m hoping that the very last days of sweater weather have now passed with this first day of April. We had a cold snap over the weekend, which wasn’t a bad thing, but definitely seemed unseasonal for Florida. However, I saw it as possibly the last opportunity to don a sweater during the day. I do always have a cardigan or other light jacket in tow when I go places (Florida tends to blast the air conditioning oh so high in buildings), but wearing one outdoors is not always possible when the temperatures reach 80! Time to break out the flip flops on a permanent basis…

Furbaby Friday: Burrito Sherman

Happy Friday everyone! I am pretty much ready to kick off the weekend at this point. Especially when it involves spending time with this adorable little dude.

Sherman

I mean: come on! His faces slay me, wrapped up like a little burrito in his bed! One funny thing about Sherman: he has an underbite. You can see a hint of it in the photo above, but it took me a few days to realize. It kind of cracks me up to see his silly grin when he pulls his lips back a bit.
