that is one meal, we will let the kids completely take on their own....

 

we've showed them how to build and what temp to put the stove knob at.......

I just can't do it. I screw them up every time. Terry has to do grilled cheese. I can tackle everything else, but grilled cheese just doesn't work for me.

You might have noticed, I'm not all there myself.

I have lived on grilled cheese, I adore grilled cheese... Back when I was a "one and only" I lived on homemade soup, cold cereal, and grilled cheese. I would make them fancy by sliding in some sauteed greens or whatnot.


Just to brag... My 9 year old made a flourless chocolate cake by himself, all from scratch a couple weeks back... He is gunna make it again today and tomorrow. (The poured on chocolate coating must be done the second day).


Of course, if my kids didn't cook, they would starve.

When my kids want new toys, I tell them to go outside and grab a stick.

When they want new clothes (like when their shoes have ten holes), I drop them off at Salvation Army, and they get to use their own money.

My kids might all pee on the front porch, but they have life skills.

That's about right. Burnt on outside, cheese cold as heck in the middle. Still haven't figured out how I'm managing that.

Now I can cook anything else. I actually do make brownies, cakes, donuts, pretzels, bread, etc all from scratch. But if you want a grilled cheese, you better learn to make that yourself.

Spook, I'm pretty sure you could use a few classes yourself. Maybe we can learn grilled cheese together.

Burnt outside, cold inside, means the pan is too hot.

Steps:

1. warm up pan, just below a sizzle

2. If you want something fancy, sautee that now, then slide onto a plate for later (onions, mushroom, water cress, etc.)

3. Get cheese ready

4. Put in two slices of bread.., pan needs to be hot enough that the bread doesn't soak up too much butter, cold enough that the bread turns brown, not black

5. Once the bottoms of the bread are brown, flip one over, put on cheese, put second bread slice on the cheese mound with toasted side to cheese

6. Once the bottom is toasted flip very carefully so last side can toast.

7. After it has flipped carefully open sandwich and slide "fancy stuff" ontop of the unmelted cheese. (So bottom bread slice starting to toast, some unmelted cheese that is starting to melt, the "fancy stuff" , then already melted cheese, top slice of bread already toasted both sides)

8. Once the bottom slice is brown on bottom, slide it out of the pan, add any cold goodies (like some sprouts), and eat.

You'd think I could follow that, but no.
