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:
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.
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.
