The Perfect Grilled Cheese Sandwich and Pregnancy Cravings

I need to do some serious food shopping, since our cupboards are looking a little bare, but I did manage to come up with this dinner the other night. It was exactly what I was craving! In my pregnant state it is the perfect grilled cheese sandwich!


Green Onions
American Cheese (not Kraft...)
1 Large Tomato
Sourdough (I believe it was called "Traditional Sourdough" and was different than the kind we usually get. It looked like white bread but tasted like sourdough.)

Layer cheese, bacon and tomato slice on bread. Sprinkle with chopped green onions and shredded cilantro. Butter outside of bread with margarine and cook over medium heat on stovetop!

And I served it with a new family favorite. I combined by veggie stew (which I had on hand and had substituted celery for artichoke hearts this time) with a box of tomato soup (a box? But that's what it was...) and added a bit more basil, oregano and garlic! I topped the soup with Parmesan cheese and the extra green onions.

And it was a pregnancy craving meal that the whole family enjoyed!

And here's the nine week bump! Tomorrow's ten weeks!


  1. That sounds delicious! I found myself craving pizza but being that I am trying to avoid excess carbs I was challenged to figure out how to do the flavor of a meat eaters pizza without a crust.

    So I sent hubby out for some Wolf brand chili, cheddar and mozzarella, pepperoni, and tomotoes and basil from a can.... not perfect but I think it will taste a lot like I scrapped it off a pizza crust. All I must do is wait for hubby and the little Tiger to get back from the store...hope they don't take much longer because I am really HUNGRY.

  2. I've been craving grilled cheese sandwiches too! Oooh, maybe I should go make one. Yum...

  3. We had grilled cheese tonight, with bacon too! When Daddy's not home, the kids get a choice every now and again!

  4. I *really* think you're having a boy. :) You know what this means, right? It's nearly 100% certain that you'll have another beautiful girl! :) I can't wait to find out!


I love comments and I read every single comment that comes in (and I try to respond when the little ones aren't distracting me to the point that it's impossible!). Please show kindness to each other and our family in the comment box. After all, we're all real people on the other side of the screen!
