If Mommy Likes It

I had another Grandma victory!

Amara was here the other evening and decided she was hungry. I was out of all my go to foods that she likes so I suggested I make her a grilled cheese. She gave me “the look”. The look that says, “I am eight and I still don’t like to try new things. You might make it different than Mommy.” Admittedly, Mommy is the better cook. Maybe better is the wrong word she is just better at experimenting with new recipes. I have Grampy, I know better! I explained to Amara that her Mommy has always claimed that I make the very best grilled cheese sandwiches in the whole wide world so she really should try one. She must have been really hungry as she agreed!

Jenna has always raved that my grilled cheese sandwiches are the best. I’ve often accused her of only saying it to get out of making them herself. She always claimed I was wrong, that I simply make the superior grilled cheese.

There is no big secret to my grilled cheese success. I butter both sides of each slice of bread. I make sure the pan is just the perfect temperature (not too hot) and I use Velveeta. I have a nice big lid that I put over the sandwiches so that as they reach the perfect state of golden brown they also reach maximum gooeyness. She loved it! She made a big point of telling me “Mommy was right. You really do make The World’s Best Grilled Cheese Sandwiches.”

    Not just a Grandma Victory, but a family tradition carried on. I wish I had one of your grilled cheese sandwiches right now. I don’t think I’ve ever used Velveeta for grilled cheese. I’m going to try it.

    Congratulations! We, grandmas, need our cooking victories. My daughter is a gourmet chef while I am a cook and my gkids sure know the difference. ๐Ÿ™‚ The one benefit is when we have holidays or special events, I get to have a gourmet dinner.

    Lucky Amara! She never has to go far for a good sandwich! I can never get grilled cheese to work for me. My oldest daughter, however, makes perfect ones. I don’t know how she learned the skill – not from me!
    That’s a cute picture of you and Amara!

      I just checked your weather — โ€œchance of snowโ€? If you want your grilled cheese you will have to come here to get it. It is supposed to be 79 and sunny today. I may have to make one for myself and go sit in the backyard and enjoy it.

      Want to join me?

    I am so weird….I don’t like melted orange cheese but I’ll eat it regular ( well some of it, like longhorn / colby cheese )

    But I love grilled ham and white cheese sandwiches…like with mozzarella or provolone or swiss.

    You two look great! ๐Ÿ™‚

    Mmmmm … love grilled cheese sandwiches made with Velveeta!! ๐Ÿ™‚ And I love the picture of the two of you!! xoxo

    That’s how I make my grilled cheese sandwiches, too, at least when I’m making them for the grands. When my kids were young, they claimed that I made the best mac and cheese, but my grands don’t like it. They want the packaged variety. Oh, well. Win some and lose some!

    Love that impish, mischievous look on Amara’s face – and that “so happy to be here snuggling with this cute little ladybug” look on YOUR face!
    I’m assuming it was grampy who took the photo, and what a nice job!

      She is absolutely an imp and I do think she gets that from me! I don’t think she is ever going to outgrow my lap! She loves sitting there and as you can tell — I like it, too!

    Love that pic of you two! Amara looks like such a fun and sweet kid. I always really appreciate my gkids complimenting something I cooked for them. It is hard to find something they like and then have them eat it. Thanks for linking with me!

    You make it exactly the way my Dad used to make it. When I told my grandchildren that my Dad was always responsible for Sunday supper and he rotated between popcorn, grilled cheese sandwiches and peas and cheese salad, they begged me to fix it. I made all three and even let them eat in front of the tv while we watched a movie – something that never happens at Grandma’s house! Thanks for the memories.

      Reading your blog often gives me wonderful memories of my childhood. I am glad I could do the same for you!
