Cheap, Cheerful and Cheesy - Week 1

September 1st, 2013 at 06:13 pm

I guess because fall is almost here, I just remembered a little project I wanted to try. I want to get into the habit of making grilled cheese sandwiches more often, by making a different type of grilled cheese sandwich every week for, dare I say, a year? That's what people seem to do with these sorts of projects, like here: http://crockpot365.blogspot.com/

So, why do this at all, and why keep track of it here? Basically, because I think it will help our food budget. It's something I can throw together in a hurry and use up little bits of things, instead of ordering take-out. It helps that last winter I bought a little Proctor-Silex sandwich maker like the one pictured. We are only a two-person household so the size is fine. Once it's heated you put the sandwiches in for 3 minutes and they come out perfectly.

Today's entry:

Light wheat bread, buttered
Provolone cheese (the only sliced cheese we had on hand)
Low fat ham
Honey mustard
Apple slices as a side munchie instead of chips

(I don't have any connection with Proctor-Silex, I paid for the sandwich maker myself, and all I will be getting out of this project are some cheap, tasty meals!)

    Well, I'm glad at least three people don't think I've completely lost it. Wink

    There is a restaurant in my area called Cheesie's that serves gourmet & specialty grilled cheese sandwiches. I love it! You should look at their menu at cheesieschicago.com for ideas!

    CB - I'm going to check out their menu right now! BTW, I am looking into the prospect research thing. I checked out the website for that organization you recommended, and I can see they have a lot of education material on it there. I also found out there is a Foundation Center department at the library in Philly, which isn't too far from me, where I could practice doing this kind of research. It does look interesting.
