Pumpkin Spice Egg McMuffins…

I get up with my arms wrapped tight around me…

I was cold! k7835359

Furnace needed a new filter… so I opted to turn on my gas range for a little while… to get the chill out of the air…

It worked!… k12052355

Later Bobby got the filter and replaced… and when furnace turned on…

(YES!… it was cool enough to want it on) …k6574473

I needed a few items at the store… but, when I returned… Breakfast was calling our names…

I had already decided I was borrowing McDonald’s idea of an Egg McMuffin! …250px-McD-Egg-McMuffinMcDonald's_Golden_Arches_svg

“The Best In the World!”

We are on a grilled cheese kick… That’s what I call it when my husband and son say, “Just fix me a grilled cheese”… This has been going on for about two weeks… Could it be that I’m the best grilled cheese maker in the world! … I doubt it… but, as long as my family likes them … that’s fine!… I usually add some soup with them… My favorite being Tomato Bisque … My husband’s is Homestyle Chicken Noodle … My guys are easy to please… I’m grateful for that… When I make the sandwiches I like using a bigger bread… and want to be able to see and taste the cheese … Good old American  is fine… I butter  both sides of the bread all the way to the edges… put the cheese in the middle… heat my favorite non-stick skillet on about medium heat… and lay it in… I love the way it sizzles… I peek to see if it’s getting brown… and when it’s golden I turn it over with a spatula  and repeat… I learned the best way to do this process from one of my favorite nieces… I babysat her and her brother and sisters one summer many years ago… She was about 12 years old… I watched her as she made grilled cheese sandwiches for all of us one day… I had the habit of squashing/flattening mine for some reason… but, not her… She just let it do it’s magic in that skillet … hardly touching it… only to peek like I do now… It was just perfect!… eating it with Kool-Aid that we drank by the gallons … She liked to cook then and still does … Now her specialty is chicken/dumplings and a layered Chocolate E’clair

  dessert… We ask for both, at all of our family functions…I doubt I have ever told her that she taught me to make the best grilled cheese in the world… On a hot summer day when she was just a young girl…
