2011/10/30

So I know I’m only posting food related currently, but it’s easy + quick and that’s two priorities in my life right now…

Tonight we had a nice fall sampler. :)

Fall Grilled Cheese
Roasted Bell Pepper Tomato Soup
BLT Salad

Grocery List:
Grilled Cheese
Cranberry/Walnut Rustic Bread
Smoked Cheddar Cheese [we did a goat variety]
Apple
Ficoco Spread
Roasted Bell Pepper Tomato Soup
BLT Salad
1.5lb assorted tomatoes [we used heirlooms, although I know not prime season…]
Blue Cheese, 4oz [again used non-cow milk so a Roquefort]
1/4lb bacon
Basil
S+P
2Tbs Olive Oil
1tsp Dijon Mustard
1 garlic clove, minced
1Tbs Apple Cider Vinegar
1tsp Herbs de Provence

Pour soup into pot and cook on low, so it warms over the course of prepping everything else. Turn oven on to 400, line foil with bacon and cook 10 mins per side, until crispy. While bacon is cooking, mix: olive oil, vinegar, mustard, garlic, S+P, & Herbs de Provence. Slice tomatoes and arrange on platter, top with fresh basil leaves, drizzle vinaigrette, top with blue cheese crumbles-set aside until bacon is ready. While waiting, stir soup and cut bread for sandwiches. Slice apples and cheese. Spread ficoco on one side of two pieces of bread-thinly. Layer with cheese and apple slices and top with other slice. Butter outside of tops of sandwiches. Place small amount of butter in a skillet, place non-buttered side down in buttered pan and cook over med-high until cheese starts to melt and bread is browned. Flip and repeat with other buttered side.

Serve sandwich and soup together [i drizzled some good quality olive oil and a dash fine white pepper on the soup to make it look nicer] to dip with BLT salad platter to share.
