A Cool Weather Dinner {Grilled Cheese & Soup}


It has finally cooled off here in New Orleans(for now), and I start to crave what I think are the foods of the cooler weather months.


I love a grilled cheese sandwich and a side of soup as dinner on a cool evening.


Sunday night, I prepared grilled cheese sandwiches for J & I. I love to use sour dough bread (slightly toasted) and gruyere cheese. I am addicted to gruyere! J likes his slathered with mustard. I use a Dijon brown mustard. I prefer mine with no condiments.


I simply butter each side of the breads after slightly toasting each and then place the sandwich in the oven on 375 degrees for 15 minutes. Before I take the sandwiches out of the oven, I turn on the broiler on high, crack open the oven door, and watch the sandwich broil for a minute or two.

J likes his sandwich sliced; I prefer mine whole. Differences make the world go round. LOL!


J picked up a homemade shrimp and corn soup from one of our local lil supermarkets, Zara’s. The soup is delicious. How do you like my oyster shell handled soup bowls? I had them custom made for me by dk clay earlier this year. Click HERE for dk clay!


Sunday night dinners take place at the breakfast table. All I can say is YUM!

Grilled cheese and shrimp & corn soup are a perfect cool weather “feast”.

I am also thinking and praying for all of you affected by Hurricane Sandy. I know first hand how you are feeling and what you are going through. Prayers your way!


Grilled cheese, y’all!
