Thank you for visiting my blog!

For those of you new to my blog, I thought I should let you know what my mission is. I am working my way through Rachael Ray's 365: No Repeats cookbook. It is my goal over time to prepare all of the recipes in this book. At the pace I am going, it may take me 5 years, but I am practical enough to realize that there is no way that I can cook every single night of the week, as well as purchase all the ingredients for every recipe every night and still keep up the mortgage payments! I hope you are inspired to get into the kitchen and try some new recipes yourself. Your comments are always welcome and I appreciate you stopping by. May the Lord bless you all!

Night 84

Recipe 252
Croque Monsieur with Greens
Matt rating *****

Ingredients used:

Unsalted butter
Whole milk
Dijon mustard
Freshly grated nutmeg
Sandwich bread
Sliced ham
Gruyere cheese
White wine vinegar
Apricot jam
Tarragon leaves
Mixed baby greens

I made this delicious meal after a hike in the mountains on a crisp fall day.  I was disappointed with how they looked when they came out of the pan, but looks were definitely deceiving in this case!  The sandwiches had a delicious surprise of a creamy sauce on the inside with the ham, and a cheese crust on the outside.  The salad and dressing were a nice contrast to the heaviness of the sandwiches.  My sister and her kids were here and they all raved about how good the sandwiches were.  Matt took one bite out of the sandwich and yelled out "FIVE!" for the rating.  I am making a spinach bisque in the crock pot today (not a Rachael Ray recipe), and I just may have to make these sandwiches again to go along with the creamy soup.  It's a perfectly chilly and rainy fall day for comfort food.
