Hot sandwiches taste so good in the fall. This sandwich has been my version of an ‘adult grilled cheese’ for a while so I thought I’d share it. It’s very easy to make and hits the spot when a PB&J or simple turkey just isn’t enough – plus it’s a good way to mix in some greens!! Usually I just buy pesto but you can make your own if you’re so inclined.
On a completely unrelated note, I just watched Sleepless In Seattle for the first time (as well as While You Were Sleeping), and they were so good!! No wonder they’re classics. Now I need to watch An Affair to Remember because apparently that’s where Meg Ryan got the idea to meet Tom Hanks at the top of the Empire State Building. And meeting at the top of the Empire State building is exactly what Chuck wanted to do with Blair in Gossip Girl – oh how I miss that show! Congrats to Blake Lively (aka Serena) on her recent news.
Hope you’re having a great start to fall and thanks for reading!
