What Doesn’t Go With Cheese?

I’m eating lunch at 5:00p.m.  Ellis Island took a lot longer than I had anticipated.  I went over with another teacher who is involved in the field trip and we figured out a schedule, mapped out a route, and generated questions within each subject area that related to the exhibits.  I had never been before and I really enjoyed myself; it’s an opportunity I’m glad to give my students.  Unfortunately their lack of experience is their biggest roadblock; I have students who have never been out of New York but have also never been to Central Park!  It’s really sad.

I packed some Trader Joe’s dried hibiscus for a snack on the commute.

When I did get home I spent another hour trying to get a package mailed to my parents.  The post office in Park Slope sucks!  For the most part almost everything is available back home, but occasionally things will surprise you.  I was mailing my mom gum drops (she is a lower school librarian, and she’s reading The Gumdrop Tree and wants to give them out) because she couldn’t find them.  I also sent some candy corn and jordan almonds because they’ve been unavailble as well.  It’s not that bad though, I remember the day K-Mart opened when I was a kid, it was pretty exciting stuff!

When I got home I made myself a zuccini grilled cheese sandwich.  I thinly sliced a zuccini and roasted it in the oven with a little Pam and sprinkle of salt.  And then this,

turned into this.

Yum!  I put all of the zuccini on two slices (Wonder, A’s choice) Bread with some 50% reduced sharp cheddar, spread the outsides with a little PromiseActiv and heated it in a pan.  Alongside some Mary’s Gone Crackers and turkey pepperoni.

I have schoolwork to do and we’re still not quite ready for company, so I’ve gotta run.

    I’ve had grilled cheese with tomato and with spinach, but never with eggplant! Good call. I am not sure I knew you were a teacher. I am student teaching right now!

    HangryPants – this was actually a zuccini, not an eggplant, I bet that flavor would be great though! Good luck with student teaching, fun stuff!
