Egg & Cheese Sandwiches

I have been getting majorly distracted today. Earlier I grabbed my sewing kit and started repairing all my daughters dress-up princess dresses that had tears in them because 1) 4/5 year olds do not know how to be gentle and 2)I invited three of her school friends over tomorrow for a playdate, so I want the rips fixed before they get bigger. The rips, not the kids. :) I was working on the last dress when the phone rang, so I put it down and took the call. Then I decided to check email. Then I wandered into the kitchen for something to drink and I discovered my notepad, main recipe book, and sales papers all over the kitchen table. I had been working on the grocery list because when I checked email this morning I saw that Krista had a new post about Grilled Sub Sandwiches which look SO yummy that I had to go and write it down on the grocery list so I wouldn't forget to make them. I had walked away from that because I heard the dryer stop, so I went downstairs to get the laundry and saw my sewing box. So I grabbed it and brought it up with me to work on the dresses, which is how that started. Now the kitchen table is still covered with the grocery list stuff and the last dress is still sitting half finished on the couch. And what am I doing? Why, ignoring all that and posting to my blog, of course! Oh, and the laundry is still sitting on my bed waiting to be folded. LOL!

Tonight I am going to make the Egg & Cheese Sandwiches I read about on Heidi's blog, which she got from Krista. (Their blogs are listed under My Blog List and you should really check them out if you have not done so yet.) I have 'country-style' thick sliced white bread in the cabinet, a dozen large eggs, and sliced American, Cheddar, and Pepper-Jack cheese. Not that I will use all those cheeses on the sandwiches, but it's good to have options. I will serve it with a green salad, which we still have a ton of left because we did not eat any salad yesterday with the Hash. I am going to make scrambled eggs, instead of easy-over or hard-over, for our sandwiches because it's easier for me and then my daughter can have scrambled eggs for dinner. I must say, I am really looking forward to trying these sandwiches tonight - I just know they will be yummy!

Oh, I have a funny story to tell you. My husband woke up on Sunday with a swollen uvula, which is that little thing that hangs down at the back of your throat. Apparently this can happen to people who snore a lot (like him). He checked out some medical websites and found that Benadryl and ibubrofen can help. My daughter overheard us talking about it, so we told her what was going on. The next day my kid wanders next door through the backyard, and while my neighbor is making breakfast, my daughter proceeds to tell her that 'daddy is sick and that his vulva isn't feeling good'. LOL! When my neighbor questioned her about the word, she said 'well, it's something like that'. She is only 5 years old and does not know the word vulva, but that is how she pronounced uvula - too funny!

Happy eating!

  1. Cute story! I hope your husband is feeling better now. My husband snores pretty bad, it's a wonder he's never had that.

    I've been thinking about making the grilled egg and cheese sandwiches since I saw them on Heidi's blog. They look delicious!
