the perfect sandwich
It rained all afternoon- surprising, but nice. I love to hear the rain splattering the windows... thundering through the gutters. It was an afternoon that set the mood for dinner... grilled cheese and soup. Everyone had their own custom grilled cheese sandwich: Eric- white bread & muenster cheese; Camden- white bread & a combo of muenster & Swiss; Laura- wheat 5-grain Italian & cheddar; and me? Six summers ago, while awaiting the arrival of Baby Drew, Amy & I perfected the recipe for our very own grilled cheese sandwiches... 5 grain sourdough bread (but I had to substitute wheat 5-grain Italian tonight!), Swiss cheese, and thinly sliced tomato seasoned with salt, pepper and basil. Toasted to perfection... yum.
