Herb Bread and Upscale Grilled Cheese
A couple of weeks ago, I blogged about our balcony herb garden. Recently, we decided to use the fruits (well, the herbs) of that garden along with the bread machine to make some herb bread. I’d bought P a bread machine cookbook as part of his recent birthday gift, and we were both excited to go beyond a basic white loaf.

The bread turned out delicious!
A few days before making this loaf, I’d come across this post on DCist describing a local restaurant’s new Tuesday night tradition: a grilled cheese bar. Using some Toscano pepper cheese from Trader Joe’s, I decided to take my own crack at it. And it turned out delicious!
