Creative energy and Cheese please! A fresh take on grilled cheese good enough to serve company and making room for more happy.Navigating life and caring for a young family requires energy! Lots and lots of time and energy!
Sometimes I think this big, fat happy life I always wished for has gotten way too hectic and overwhelming to do a really good job as a wife, mother, friend and business owner and still find the time and energy to actually enjoy it all.
But like most of you on those
crazy busy days, I try to remind myself to stop, smell the ____ and keep my eye on the prize.
What is that anyway???
What is it that makes you feel the most alive? happy? Filled with joy?!
Think about it for a sec.
What fuels you? Puts a skip in your step?? Makes you completely loose track of all time and place???
Every one of us deserves (and needs) that my friend.
It’s not about doing everything; it’s about doing what you love and bypassing the rest.
By focusing on your life ‘ingredients’ for happiness, you free up more time for family/friends, laughter and the things you love, like creative projects, real energy and…oh, I don’t know…cheese! 🙂
And, yes! While I adore a good DIY and find myself in heaven when I’m inspired creatively, what I truly love most in life are the times I have with my family and friends! I really am the happiest when our home is full of those I love!
One of the best ways I’ve found to make the most of the quality time we spend together is to keep fresh, wholesome food like cheese in our house. At all times. Weekday. Weekend. You name it.
Whether it’s just another Saturday morning with our girls or we have a house full of overnight guests in to enjoy our beautiful Florida weather, having fresh ingredients on hand makes our time together more enjoyable. Better.
And, because Alpine Lace® Deli Cheese is reduced fat and their high-quality ingredients are a good source of protein and calcium with such great taste I love to make my gourmet grilled cheese for myself, our family and even when we have company.
It’s an amazing sweet & savory sandwich I find myself craving and I bet you will too!
To make this quick, easy and oh, so yummy recipe: take 2 sliced of cinnamon-raisin bread, add fresh, sliced Granny Smith apples and Virginia baked ham along with a touch of purple onion between a few slices of Alpine Lace® swiss cheese.
And, after a few minutes in a warm pan, you will be enjoying the most delicious grilled cheese, ever!
Ooh, I could go for one right now!
It’s sweet and salty and oh–so-good! And with some fresh fruit on the side you’re all set for putting that creative energy we talked about to real good use doing what you love most.
Here’s to your happy!
Say cheese, please!
