It’s Friday! Thank goodness. I don’t know about you guys, but I’m never sad when Friday arrives.

Fridays in April so far have been all about grilled cheese and this Friday is no different. Today’s grilled cheese is more of a sweet than a savory grilled cheese like you may be used to.

Have you tried Honey Goat Cheese yet? Ohmygod. I could eat this stuff with a spoon, speaking hypothetically of course. It is so creamy and wonderful…it may be my new favorite cheese. You can find it at most grocery stores now and it comes in a large size at Trader Joe’s, so that’s where I get it now that my addiction is real.

I hope your weekend was fabulous! I know ours certainly was. The weather was amazing here this weekend and I think we spent every waking moment outside. I got my vegetable garden planted (more to come on that later this week), we cleaned up the yard, spent some time with family and even did a little relaxing outside…it was great!

As a kid, it wasn’t Easter without my grandmother’s Peanut Butter Eggs. We looked forward to them all year long because they were so much better than Reese’s. With Easter sneaking up in less than a week, I figured it was only fair that I share my favorite Easter recipe with you.

Pimento Cheese Grilled Cheese

Pimento Cheese Grilled Cheese is the creamiest, most drool-worthy Grilled Cheese you’ve ever seen.

Aaaaand, we’re back with the next edition of Grilled Cheese month.

After spending tons of time in Charleston, we are very familiar with Pimento Cheese. So it comes as no surprise that Ben recently fessed up and told me he orders a Pimento Cheese every night before school at his happy hour spot. I mean, really???? I did try packing Ben some delicious snacks back in August when he started grad school. That lasted for about a week before Ben realized it was much easier, and apparently much more fun to visit the bar next to school than brown bag it with a snack. Go figure. Who can blame him?

So this infamous Pimento Cheese happy hour snack was inspired by Wit and Wisdom, a Baltimore bar located right next to the Hopkins business school. When we visited Baltimore for my birthday, I got a chance to taste it. Holy wow. No wonder Ben ditched the homemade (but frozen) burritos I had been packing. It’s official. My snacks were lame compared to this Pimento Cheese.

What is your guilty pleasure to make for dinner when you’re on your own? We got into this conversation with friends the other night at dinner. Our friend has some upcoming work travel and there was discussion of her husband feasting on McDonald’s and frozen dinners while she was gone. As friends, we intervened…don’t worry! Around here, if Ben is left to his own devices for dinner, he’s definitely having barbecue.

In fact, if I’m traveling for work, barbecue for dinner. If Ben’s home at lunch, he’s likely picking up barbecue. Meeting a friend? You guessed it. It’s an addiction!

I figured it was about time I finally stop denying him and just give him some barbecue at home. I’ll make it again soon since he even declared it the best barbecue he’s ever had. That’s saying something from the person who invites friends to our local barbecue place and then goes to their favorite place too just to judge who has a better favorite. See? Addicted.
