Is This Bad?

May 12, 2010

The Big One is finally starting to venture out and eat more things. I think we are finally getting away from the yogurt and chicken dino diet.  One of the things she has decided she likes is grilled cheese sandwiches.


Yesterday for lunch that’s what she asked for.  Not wanting to squash the grilled cheese enthusiasm, I said okay and proceeded to get one cooking.


Well, I got distracted and burned the heck out of one side.  Truth be told, I was checking my e-mail when I suddenly smelled the unmistakable burned grilled cheese.  (don’t pretend like you’ve never burned one!)


So I jump up, flip the sandwich and then being the ultimate lazy person I am,  I peeled off the burnt piece of bread, grabbed another slice of cheese and quickly buttered another piece of bread to put on top.


By the time I was done with that, the other side was nicely grilled. So it worked out well.  It did have a bit of a burnt bread smell, but the Big One still ate it.


So what do you think? Would you have tossed the whole thing and started over or done what I did?

    Heck No! You are my hero for thinking that fast! I would have thrown it away just because I wouldn’t be smart enough to think to just replace the one side!

    I have to agree with what Amy said.
    Last night, my Big One got his first grilled cheese in months and I slightly overcooked one side, too. It wasn’t too bad, so I went ahead and served it, fingers crossed. I was quite surprised that it got the okay from his picky little palette.

    Very smart. I can’t tell you how many “scraped” grilled cheese sandwiches my kids have had (meaning you take a knife & scrape the burned part into the sink and give them the sandwich anyway).

    WHEW! I felt really lazy peeling one side off… and Alyson it was way beyond scraping! 🙂

    I probably would have tried to scrape off the color and tried to get away with serving it! Otherwise I most likely would have tossed it. Great job on thinking quick and saving half the sandwich:)
