HI, there everyone. Hows it going, its been a great summer so far for me. I got to enjoy my vacation in Cali, kid free. And also the Southern Charms of North Carolina, I totally could live in either state, but Cali is at the top of my least. Mainly because I love the views and calm of the Ocean. Dont get me wrong, I know the cost of living there is super high, so I need to make more money, hopefully I’ll hit the lottery or discovered for something lol. Hey a girl can dream right. Ive been back to #momlife for a few weeks now and my little munchkin turned 3, also know as threenager, year, and boy is she ever. The things she says, omg, she has definitely been here before haha. We just got through her Unicorn Themed birthday party, with a unicorn cake that I made myself. Im very proud of my cake, though it wasnt perfect. My little girl had a great time at her party in our back yard, and so did her friends, younger and older. I can’t believe how time flies :(. Ive also been updating some things in my home, finally finished the stencil wall, thank the lord, and rehabbing furniture, to be shared in a post at a later date. Now let’s get to the business of the triple cheese/grilled cheese with garlicky beet spread and turkey bacon.
Scrolling through instagram one day, I saw a post by Detroit’s hour magazine for hour shared plates, which is a contest for Michigan based homecooks, which gives them an opportunity to get exposure by being in the magazine, doing a cooking demo on facebook live and a $100 restaurant gift certificate. This is usually done on a monthly basis, I believe. This Month the focus is on sandwiches. Last December I did win with my Sweet Potato Pie Waffles and pecan crusted chicken, and I did a cooking demo on their Facebook live, I really enjoyed that. I though it was time to revisit so I decided to enter. Grilled cheese initially came to mind, I believe I make pretty delish grilled cheese, but I didn’t want it to be basic so I thought adding something healthy, that is also delicious would do the trick. I also wanted something that would have a nice color contrast, beets have such a rich and vivid color, they make everything bright. So I thought of ways to incorporate beets and decided to do a smear with a punch of garlic and saltiness of turkey bacon. The result was a really different and delish grilled cheese that is not commonly found. I don’t know if I won or not, but it was fun coming up with an a recipe. I hope you enjoy this sandwich as much as I did, though I realize some people are turned off by beets, you won’t regret eating this. Don’t forget to comment. Wish me luck.
