Love it, love it. But a little spendy, I think.

I have one of these, and I love that you can place food directly on it, and not have to worry about it staining or soaking. It washes clean easily.

oh my gosh!! that is a pricey one. not to be a disparrager or however you spell that, but i bought the exact same concept of a tray with bent ply, red, curved, etc. for around $20. these needn't be so expensive. i thought the * meant value pick?? i must be reading it wrong. sorry if i am mistaken on the symbol.

That looks like you could use it upside down too! Like a little table. To add some height to a buffet.
Hmm...

I can't believe you mention "fancy mini grilled cheese trios" and didn't link to the recipe...they sound yummy. I must be tired though because the first time I read it, I thought you said mini grilled cheerios.

lol. grilled cheerois- mmm! i love it.

i didn't list one because i didnt have one. i was inspired by an old issue of domino that had a cider and grilled cheese party. i adapted it based on what cheese looked good at the deli for our weekly poker tournament.

i made:

-gorg. with pear and honey
-brie with mango chutney
-sharp cheddar with crispy green apples
-swiss with lots of buttery crispy pieces on top

all of this was on a nice crispy (but soft inside) ciabatti loaf that i sliced and foreman-ed (george, that is) for like 2 min each. it was awesome if i do say so myself.

next time i want to do something fun like gouda with ham for the meateaters or cranberry sauce and a cheese that would go with it.

any fun ideas? im a grilled cheese nut. i was a vegan for a long time and i missed cheese so much.

Thanks so much for the grilled cheese recipes, that's so thoughtful of you. Grlled cheese is one of my favorite comfort foods.

When you lived in Williamsburg did you ever go to the restaurant Moto on Broadway? They have some really yummy cheese combinations....parmesan and fennel salad, roquefort and pear salad, brie and pear panini etc.

How funny, I lived right on Broadway in a loft building. I hated the neighborhood too!!! I remember your comment about no trees there and how great it is to see them now....so true. I live in Prospect Park South now and love seeing green.

Did you ever see Avril Lavigne's video "Happy Ending"? It took place right on our street. I couldn't believe she glamorized having a subway outside her window! Here is a link to the video: http://music.aol.com/artist/main.adp?artistid=529805#
