A story about how I made a gourmet sandwich for dinner

I don't know if this post can possibly top pregnancy news, but let me tell you, I have always loved me a hot ham and cheese sandwich. There is something so comforting and warm about it. So when I saw this recipe on Posie last week, I made up my mind to make it, and Tuesday night that it is just what I did. A Croque Monsieur...doesn't that just sound sophisticated? And yet, when it comes down to it, it is just a hot ham and cheese. Of course, it was much more complicated to make and I think that is where the sophisticated part comes in. I may have spent 3 hours making it (that includes my 2 trips to the grocery store though...pregnancy seems to be affecting my mental abilities, mainly that I forget things very quickly and often). It was very good, VERY rich and completely bad for us. But so good. The mornay sauce is definitely worth making, but it takes forever to make and you don't need much of it -you end up pouring it over the sandwich and then broiling it. I put a little too much on. That was my only mistake.

Finally, around 8pm, David and I were able to eat dinner and I of course snapped a photo first. It amuses me to take photos of my food. I often think how funny it would have been if before dinner, when I was growing up, my mom would have said: "Wait, I need a picture of those cabbage rolls first!" This could very well be a common occurrence for my children someday!

Looks yummy! We had a similar experience tonight with "sophisticated" tomato soup. My husband was making fun of me for taking a photo of dinner :) Too funny. Wish I could tell you the "pregnancy brain" improves. It only turns into "mommy brain."

OH heck, my son is 14, and I still have the Mommy Brain thing. Maybe it's just me.

Your dinner looks yum!cla
