As for the grilled cheese sandwiches I was a bit deviant. First, take a generous loaf of any country style bread and cut into thick slices. Place slices on an oven plate covered with baking sheet. On one side place slices of tomato with sprinkles of salt and black pepper on top. Again, no arugula in the house so used mache lettuce of which put a few sprigs on top of the tomato. Then, chunks of emmenthal and one side is done. On the top slices, just spread some butter and stick all in the oven. Just keep there long enough for the cheese to have slightly melted, at which point remove from the oven, take the top pieces and press them on top of the cheesy ones. Cut in half and enjoy. Oh, the tipple there is French cidre de table , the veeery dry kind that smells like old, musty cellars. Lovely.
On the baking front, the stash of chocolate chip cookies was running out so decided to give this honey cookie recipe from Wee Folk Art a try. I wasn't sure how they were going to turn out as we had run out of regular honey and I had to use this rosemary honey from Portugal instead.
Worked wonderfully though so I can heartily recommed you to try herbed honey with these cookies. Otherwise it was a really straightforward recipe and the Daughter had much fun rolling the dough and placing the lumps on the oven sheet.
