Dinner last night was super easy. I like super easy! Michael was craving sandwiches so I suggested grilled cheese.
The secret ingredient that makes the best grilled cheese? Mustard! Michael puts Dijon mustard on his sandwich. I am not really a fan of Dijon and can only handle it in small doses. So I used my Trader Joe’s Garlic Aioli mustard on my sandwich instead.
Butter both sides and grill it up! If you want to save some calories, don’t go crazy on the cheese and use “I Can’t Believe it’s Not Butter” Spray when you grill it.
I stopped eating Grilled Cheese sandwiches when I first started losing weight because I wasn’t sure how to make it “lighter.” Then I started using those 45 calories per slice bread, I Can’t Believe it’s not Butter, and those American Cheese Slices (nasty I know). I perfected the low-calorie grilled cheese sandwich–even if it wasn’t the best sandwich I’d ever had. ;) Honestly, I prefer what we make now!
We watched the new season of “Top Chef” last night. I love that show! Do you watch? I am a Kenny Fan for sure. He was pretty impressive. I am so happy the show is back! I posted on Twitter, “It’s Not Top Scallop!” –the funniest line from last season! ;)
Finally, I’ve been contacted by a cool company for a GREAT first giveaway! Check back soon for more details!
