Dinner With Jude.

First things first. I joined the 21st century and GOT AN IPHONE. A 4 even! A very exciting day today. And I'm clearly obsessed with Instagram like the rest of the world. See?
MY FOREHEAD LOOKS HUGE!/ wish you guys could see the sweet navajo pattern poncho I'm wearing. I'ma basically live in this bitch. (sorry mom). 

So Jude is a regular here on ze old bloggy. He comes over for dinner and a movie when his mama and his daddy are workin' late. Tonight the menu was: 
Adult grilled cheese; gruyere, bacon, spinach and onions (and 3 year old grilled cheese for Jude)
Dill potato wedges.
Monkey bread (recipe coming soon!)
and Megamind. 

For the tadoes you basically need 2 gigantic russet potatoes if theres 2 of you or more if there's...well..more of ya! Cut into thick wedges, drizzle olive oil over the top and toss with dried dill, salt and pepper. Roast at 450 for 30 minutes and toss about every 10. 

For the sammies you'll need a handful of fresh spinach, 1 cup of shredded gruyere cheese, 6 slices center-cut bacon, sliced red onion and 4 slices of whatever bread you fancy. After you cook the bacon pile it all onto the  bread and cook like a grilled cheese! PS: Do you guys use butter on the exterior of your bread for grilled cheese or something else? I've always used butter cuz that's what my mom used...but was curious what everyone else does! 

NO I wasn't crying, that's how amazingly bad my eyes water EVERYTIME I cut onions. No matter what trick I do (i've even worn swimming goggles...don't judge) they do this. Most of my mascara is off! Ps I promised I wouldn't post bad pictures of myself online anymore but that clearly went out the window. 

Super simple, and super delicious. I had a nervous breakdown because I couldn't find the ketchup to go with our potatoes. Don't worry. Crisis averted, it was behind the water. (Um, how cute is my dinner date?)

And I'll leave you with another face I shouldn't make. Night! <3


  1. Mmm, adult grilled cheeses are my FAV. I also use butter for my bread. =]

    Try keeping your onion in the fridge. It'll last longer AND it won't make your eyes water! When the onion is cold it keeps the 'vapors' from releasing as fast, so as long as you can cut an onion in less than about 19 minutes, you'll be good. I just store them in a drawer and it's all good. =] I've worn goggles before, too! {my snowboarding ones...}

  2. Steff- I've TOTALLY tried to keep them in the fridge and it still doesn't help! I have super sensitive eyes and sinuses...Looks like it's back to the nose plug and goggles for me! ;)
