Grilled Cheese for Brunch

Skipped breakfast. Have been busy with the bird nursery as Marlina called it earlier. The birds are keeping me busy in the front and back gardens. Took a break from the crazy heat and humidity. Realized it is 1:pm and nothing to eat yet. So I fixed a quick grilled cheese. That is always good for a fast meal. Not sure about dinner yet. On these hot days meals are light. Appetite is zapped by the heat. Does that happen to you? Take care and stay safe everyone.

I love grilled cheese sandwiches! It's been a long time since I've last had one. I know exactly what you mean about the heat zapping your appetite. I always eat less during the summer than I do at any other time of the year.

Grilled cheese will always hit the spot. I'm all for a plate of cut up fruits and vegetables or whatever just for dinner. Maybe I'll have to do grilled cheese for dinner .

@CarolDM In fact it doesn't even need to be on a plate . . . a nice peach or apple or even some grapes.

My doctor commented about this yesterday, how people lose their appetite whenever it gets too hot! Grilled cheese is one of my favorite sandwiches, all year long!

Uh oh I should not be looking at that delicious sandwich before bedtime, but your image lured delightfully ! Yeah our appetite is somewhat zapped by heat waves YET we are getting so creative when we make salads with pasta or veggies or beans keeping healthy and voluntarily quarantined till further notice.

Yes, wasn't that grill cheese tempting? I'm waiting for my tomatoes to ripen. Had my first one yesterday on a tuna fish sandwich. And of course they go great in a healthy salad...

I believe that is what happened to me. even today I was not up for a meal. I know I needed to eat so of course, I did enjoy a salad. I am hoping that we just continue to eat and be safe.

Oh, I love grilled cheese sandwiches. When it is hot and humid, I want to eat only quick-and-easy foo. Like you, I am not that hungry when high heat is in the picture.

If it can be done quickly, it is not bad if we have sudden guests. We served hot food that we prepared quickly.

I can't eat a heavy meal when I get hot. A nice salad, grilled cheese or fruit salad always hits the spot.

For me breakfast is very important. no matter how busy I work, I will still take the time to have breakfast. it's very useful for maintaining physical endurance and improving my performance. I would at least have breakfast with a piece of bread and a glass of hot tea.

I usually like quick simple meals. I too love grilled cheese sandwiches. Not only are they quick to prepare, but they are nutritious. I like to put cream cheese with a couple thinly sliced apple pieces on a bagel. From time to time, I'll sprinkle some cinnamon on them.
