Grilled Cheese Sandwich Day

Where's the bacon, I ask?

Where’s the bacon, I ask?

This morning on Fox & Friends, they had a chef (volume too low to catch his name or else my hearing is getting like husband’s), who was making different types of grilled cheese sandwiches to celebrate today and one of them was raisin bread filled with cheddar cheese, crisp BACON and slices of Granny Smith apples (again, volume too low to hear what type of apples)! Talk about a combo, it’s one I have got to try, salty, sweet and cheesy! He also talked about using more than one type of cheese on his samwiches to give them a much better taste and he grates the cheese to put on them, rather than using slices, I like that thought!

There are so many different ways to fix grilled cheese and of course BACON & cheese is one of my favorites, not to mention sliced tomatoes with a little oregano sprinkled over them, either of which goes great with husband’s special tomato soup from the can, he makes it so gooood!

Other ways to try are a baked beans, bacon and cheese grilled together on your choice of bread, one I posted back on 1/12/12 or Italian versions such as, grilled cheese the Italian way that I posted back on April 3oth, 2011, another of our favorites. Then you can also make a pizza style samwich by spreading the inside pieces of bread with pizza sauce, adding some chopped pepperoni, Parmesan and lotsa mozzarella cheese!

Any way you grill it, they’re all great alternatives to just plain ole grilled cheese and after Kenny reads this, I’ll be fixing grilled cheese of some kind before the day is over!

All Vegetable Sloppy Joe

Another recipe for my friends out there who just eat veggies. This is a wonderful version of the traditional sloppy Joe with black-eyed peas, which we love, as a substitute for the hamburger meat with a few other twists thrown in the mix. This is cooked in your crock pot and even better if you make it one day and enjoy it the next, as it gets better after being refrigerated for a day!

Got some in the garden, keeping our fingers crossed for some fresh peas!

All Vegetable Sloppy Joe
  • ⅔ cup dry black-eyed peas
  • 3 medium carrots, pared and chopped fine
  • 2 stalks celery, chopped fine
  • 1 medium sweet onion, chopped fine
  • 4 garlic clover, minced
  • ⅔ cup rice
  • 2 tbsp brown sugar
  • 2 tbsp horseradish mustard
  • 3-1/2 cups vegetable broth
  • 2 medium tomatoes, chopped
  • 1 can (8 oz) tomato sauce
  • 2 tbsp vinegar
  1. Soak peas overnight, rinse and drain.
  2. Place peas in your crock pot along with the next 8 ingredients, cover and cook on LOW heat for 10-12 hours or until peas are cooked.
  3. Stir in the chopped tomatoes, tomato sauce and vinegar and cook for another 30 minutes.
  4. Spoon over your favorite buns and serve.


So I hope you enjoy this tasty treat without the meat!
