Happy Mothers Day. I had a terrific day today, just wish the weather would have been better. Here it is May and we have a fire going in the stove tonight. I do not think we have ever had a fire this late in the spring. This morning Cally made me egg in the hole for breakfast...oh boy I love those things. Both of the kids had to work today. But I was able to spend yesterday with Billy and this evening with Cally. I am going to be a lucky Momma next weekend as both of the kids will be home.
This is my new favorite grilled cheese. The beer battered outside grilled up real nice and toasty. The outside of the sandwich was a little sweet tasting. It reminded me of french toast grilled cheese but I did not add any sugar so I am guessing it was the beer that made it taste that way.
