say cheese!

{thanks to southern belle simple to alerting me to this glorious holiday.}

anyone who knows me knows that i am a cheese freak.  i will eat cheese in any of its many perfect forms, although i especially prefer the stinky variety.  i love the fairly recent trend of gussied up grilled cheese sandwiches, but i'm also not above a good old-fashioned kraft american "cheese" + white bread combo.  add some tomato basil soup and you've got yourself a happy gal!  here are some grilled cheese combo from out and about that have me dreaming of ooey gooey deliciousness:

the pioneer woman's favorite sandwich. i've made this and it is everything ree says it is and more!

a cup of jo shares my obsessive love for cheese.  she shared these two divine grilled cheese "recipes" and i'm just dying to try both. dijon mustard...who knew?!

oh martha, how i adore you.  martha stewart living ran an article on grown-up grilled cheeses in their october 2010 issue.  i think these all sound divine.

and i can't leave out my favorite fellow francophile, ina garten! her recipe for croque monsieur is so decadent.  and that's why we love it. i actually prefer a croque madame, but some people consider that to be guilding the lily.

and then there's the classic.  no words needed. 

are you hungry yet? i sure am!
