Marvelously Matched and a Wacky ‘Wich!

Happy Monday, lovelies!

I hope you all had a fantastic weekend! I want to thank you all SO much for all the welcome back to the throne wishes yesterday…I have to say, I’m feeling pretty good about being reunited with the royal microphone spatula! Just WAIT till you see what I’ve got lined up for next week! 😀

So, let’s REVIEW some MARVELOUS moments, shall we? 

Essie Nails Purple

Like finding some down time in a CRAZY BUSY week to take for yourself…and to prettify your fingers with purpleness! 😉

Essie’s Play Date and The Girls are Out.

Edamame Crunch Chocolate Bar

Like finding the PERFECT bar of contrasting flavors AND textures to cure your “I’m going to kill someone if I don’t have chocolate right NOW” moments.

Bonus points for matching the manicure! 

Farmers' Market September 2013

Like snatching up ALL this fresh summer produce from your FAVORITE booth at the farmers’ market…for a grand total of SIX BUCKS!!

Seriously people, it pays to make friends with your farmers!

Fresh Basil

Like getting a grocery sack stuffed FULL of fresh basil from your friend at work who’s trying to “get rid” of it!

It’s ok “my precious”, she didn’t mean it! 😉

Food for Life Bread

Like getting one of these loaves of bread for FREE just because it rang up at the wrong price!

Two loaves of organic  bread for only three dollars?! Thank youuuuu, Kroger! Half points for almost matching the manicure!

Roasted Portobello Sandwich

Like using your FREE basil and FREE bread to whip up one HELL of a roasted veggie sandwich!

That would be kale, portobello, cheese, tomato, a basil with homemade pasta sauce.

Homemade Marinara Sauce

Like deciding that one little can of tomato paste was all your homemade sauce needed to reach that thick consistency you were looking for.

FYI, the original recipe has been edited. 🙂

Trader Joe's Tomate Paste

Bonus points for matching the manicure! 

Eggplant Lasagna from Kiss My Broccoli

Like using that pasta sauce (and the basil garnish) to whip up AND photograph what could be known as the BEST looking tasting vegetarian lasagna EVER…during a thunderstorm! 

Hooray for light bounces AND recipe coming tomorrow!

Blueberry Basil Grilled Cheese

Like finally taking a break from the tomatoes and throwing something #strangebutgood into your grilled cheese sandwich!

This was SO good, there was NO WAY I could wait till Friday to share…warm blueberry basil sauce, ooey gooey melty cheese, crisp toasty bread…a little bit of sweet and savory HEAVEN!

Keywords: grill microwave entrée sandwich blueberries cheese basil summer

Ingredients (Serves 1)

  • 2 slices whole wheat bread
  • olive oil spray (or butter)
  • 1-2 slices sharp flavored cheese (I used white cheddar, but Asiago would also be a good choice…or goat cheese for the less adventurous! ;))

  • 1 1/2 teaspoon honey
  • 1-2 Tablespoons fresh chopped basil

Instructions

1. Heat a non-stick skillet (or grill pan) over medium heat and coat with cooking spray.
2. In a microwave-safe bowl, combine blueberries, honey, and basil and cook on high for 1 minute.
3. Remove from microwave and stir in arrowroot powder (or choice thickener)
4. Take your bread slices and coat one side of each with a spritz of olive oil (or spread with butter).
5. Place one slice of bread spritzed (or buttered) side down in your skillet and top with cheese slice(s).
6. Spoon blueberry basil sauce over cheese and place the other side of bread on top.
7. Cook for 4-5 minutes or until bread is golden brown and cheese is melted before flipping and cooking an additional 4-5 minutes on the other side.
