Adventures With Cheese

Yeah, I slept late, so the post is late getting up. Hire a lawyer and sue me.

So anyway, school was canceled Monday because of snow and stuff, and our grandson who lives next door stayed with us while his parents were at work. His mother had made chicken and dumplings for supper the night before (just hold your horses, there’s a point in here somewhere) and she gave us the leftovers because her husband and the grandson don’t like to eat the same thing two days in a row. (!!) So–and here’s the point–Charlie and I ate the leftovers for lunch but what would the grandson eat?

We were out of bread and didn’t have time to bake some, or I would have made him a grilled cheese sandwich. So Charlie says, “We have a can of biscuits. Why don’t you use those?”

As usual, he was saying one thing and I was hearing another. He meant why didn’t I bake the biscuits and use those to make little cheese sandwiches. What I did was this:

Adventure #1

Open a can of biscuits. Separate them and smoosh each one out. Cut lumps of cheese and put a lump in the center of each smooshed biscuit. Fold the biscuit over the cheese and press to seal. Place, seam side down, on greased baking sheet. Bake according to biscuit directions.

Adventure #2

So I went to the grocery yesterday and got some bread and fancied grilled cheese sandwiches for supper, but I also got apples, so I sliced some Gala apples paper thin. Sandwich was: English toasting bread, home-made mayonnaise, Gala apples, baby Swiss cheese. Interesting.

WRITING PROMPT: Write a character who goes outside the box because of a misunderstanding.



I was born in Louisville, Kentucky, but now live in the woods in southern Indiana. Though I only write fiction, I love to read non-fiction. The more I learn about this world, the more fantastic I see it is.

    And here I thought I was adventurous for mixing a bottle of alfredo sauce in with my bottle of Ragu when I made spaghetti! You put me to shame.

      You want to talk about shame–you should see me after some of my adventures. HINT: No matter what the recipe book says, hamburgers stuffed with sauerkraut are NOT pleasing.

    Both convenient and sometimes a problem to have your daughter next door to you. I like the sound of the biscuits…I’m such a lazy cook.

    The crate came with holes. Jack thought of numerous animals that might fit inside, but he wasn’t going to check the dimensions personally no matter what Kate said. How’d he end up with a cat loving woman. Not just any cat. Lions, tigers and leopards too.
