We had grand plans to go to the beach on Saturday. Unfortunately, there was a killer rainstorm with thunder and lightening on Friday night into Saturday morning. The sky was gloomy. It was definitely not going to be a beach day.
So I took our sandwich fixings and made some killer grilled cheese sandwiches instead. I didn't have any fancy ingredients. Just basic stuff. Of course if I had some better bread and different cheese I definitely would have used that.
Ultimate Toasted Cheese Sandwich.
Today I made us grilled cheese with ham, Tillamook cheddar and a huge heirloom tomato that we bought on Friday. I seasoned the tomato with salt, pepper and just a splash of Lawry's Seasoning salt.
There is something about the buttery crunchy bread, the salty ham, the subtle taste of the cheese and the juicy flavorful tomato that is oooooooooh so delicious. So simple. Yet so tasty. Halfway through eating the sandwich I realized I forgot to put the mustard on. Didn't even need it.
I paired it with a nice salad. Using the rest of the tomato. Because we all know you cannot save half a tomato and have it taste the same. It just doesn't work. It gets mooshy, loses it's flavor and starts to look weird. It just gets yucky. Plus, those darn heirloom tomatoes cost a bloody fortune. So it's best to eat it all. And now I'm full.
Tomorrow morning I'm making banana bread. Another one of my favorite comfort foods!
