Not Yo Mama's Grilled Cheese

Hubby asks me "why wasn't my sandwich cut into a wedge?"  Me, "Because honey, yours wasn't the model"
I just love starting my recipe's off with "Not Yo Mama's...."  Cracks me up every time.  I'm easily entertained.  Did you see the conversation I had between me and self the other day?  It doesn't take much!


So, the other day it was getting pretty late and I hadn't made lunch yet and realized that I needed to stop blog stalking and make us some lunch.  The boy's (hubby and son) have been so addicted to Starcraft lately that I need to sometimes go down there and remind them to use the bathroom.  Not really, but seriously, they could go all day without eating.  Not that I have let them....yet....

Do you realize how annoying it can be when hubby crawls into bed with his iPad and Day[9] is droning on and on about the most recent professional Starcraft match?  The guy is relatively cute for a nerd.  That is, until he lifts up his arm and he's wearing a short sleeve shirt and you catch a glimpse of his extremely hairy armpit.  Talk about a gross out harmony between me and my daughter of a big "EWWWW!" as we run upstairs as fast as our little feet can carry us away from the TV.  Or the time's he finishes up with his dinner right as he goes online and he picks his tooth and the crumb fall on his lip and he nonchalantly licks it off.  Can I get another "EWWWW!"?  Yeah, so my hubby comes to bed with his iPad and Day[9] essentially comes to bed with us.  I don't even remember my point to this story.  I am so grossed out now.  But this grilled cheese was good!

  15. Mmm good. Grown up grilled cheese. I love it. I laughed about your hubby. They do make it a challenge to think they're adorable sometimes don't they. Mine is a nail biter. Makes me cringe.
