One of the nice things about working from home is being able to call my own shots. Work when I want, cook when I want, play when I want. I think you get the picture. It's why I look forward to the various Internet cooking events and challenges and then actually have time to participate in most of them. Sometimes the challenges match up with a work-related project as well, which is fun.
This month, I've been working on a travel book with a special section on Diners, which fit right in with the November theme for the Weekend Cookbook Challenge (34): Diner Food. Ani, of Foodie Chickie, is the gracious hostess this month. With all the desserts and dinners I've been creating lately, I searched for a menu item that would work for breakfast or lunch. I came across a reference to a sandwich that sounded interesting and delicious. It's basically an open-faced grilled cheese sandwich with bacon and tomatoes. Since I love grilled cheese, and you can never go wrong with bacon, I knew this was the right choice. While I forgot to add the French Fries in my hunger and excitement, it still made a delicious lunch.
I present to you the Happy Waitress:
Butter and grill two slices of bread. Top with bacon strips and tomato slices followed by a slice of American or Cheddar cheese. Grill or toast until cheese is melted. Serve with French Fries.
Thanks to Ani for hosting and to Sara of i like to cook for creating this event. I look forward to next month.
