Caprese Grilled Cheese Sandwich

Caprese Grilled Cheese Sandwich
Is it just me or are Friday nights the most difficult night to try to cook anything? I either get total recipe block and I can’t think of anything that sounds good or can’t find the right version of what I want to try. I literally found myself standing in front of the fridge for ten minutes looking and guessing what I could make for dinner without going to the store. I was about to break out a ramen when it hit me- CAPRESE GRILLED CHEESE! Yes, I got very excited for sure. Butter, cheese and a little something sweet- hello? get in my belly. Not only was my idea ingenious and delicious, but it’s super simple– almost everyone has the ingredients already in their kitchen. Next time you get recipe block, keep this on the back burner, you won’t be disappointed.
