Sushi and Mexican Grilled Cheese

on

Fact: Grocery shopping with kids is a million times easier if they have a friend there.  Which is why Kristen and I will occasionally meet at the store to do our separate shopping.  We have more fun because things are always more fun with a friend, and the kids are busy talking to each other in the carts (the two youngest usually crawl into one cart together and the two oldest crawl in the other) to get into as many shenanigans as usual.  WIN!

Anyway, we met there this morning and got stuff to make sushi because that was the plan… but got to talking more about the grilled cheese project and what not, one thing led to another, and we made a Sushi grilled cheese instead.

This was our settled on creation.  Cream cheese, imitation crab meat, thin slices of carrots and cucumber, and my special sushi sauce.

Throw that mother in a hot pan with plenty of butter.

My special sushi sauce is just mayo, sweet chili sauce, peanut oil, soy sauce, and sriracha to taste.

Kristen and I decided we needed a system for rating the various grilled cheeses in this project so we needed something awesome… and what is more awesome than coffee?  From here on out we will be rating the cheeses on a scale of 0-5 coffee mugs.

Our Sushi Grilled Cheese got a score of 3.5 out of 5 coffee mugs.

We also threw together a Mexican grilled cheese with the leftover taco meat, black beans, and corn salsa I had in my fridge, that one got a 4 out of 5 score.
