I made it two full weeks on the same grocery cart of groceries and aside from a few lunches in my employer’s café we ate all our meals at home. I still have a few soups that I didn’t get around to making, but I’ll be honest, some days I don’t feel much like cooking. So, I fell back on some old favorites
Growing up I watched my mom butter both sides of the bread before putting it in the pan. Since I’ve been experimenting more in the kitchen lately I decided to mix it up a bit.
I melt a little bit of butter in a pan and throw freshly sliced bread (slightly stale bread is even more awesome) in the butter. I’ve found that I actually use less butter using this method.
Sorry for the high contrast…most of my kitchen is white, especially the stove!
I’m looking forward to summer when I can add some fresh-from-the-garden basil and tomatoes to the mozzarella. My own caprese sandwich, if you will.
This is the finished product, and yes, that is Duc behind the sandwich protecting it. I think he was afraid I was going to steal it!
