Grilled Cheese all Grown Up

April is National Grilled Cheese Month. Cool. Here is a grown up version of this perennial favorite, courtesy of Laura Werlin.
Grilled Blue Cheese and Bacon Sandwich
1/2 cup blue cheese, crumbled
4oz cream cheese, softened
1 scallion, thinly sliced
1/2 tsp blk pepper
8 slices artisan onion bread
2 Tbsp butter, softened
4 slices bacon, cooked crisp
In a small bowl combine and mix well the blue cheese, cream cheese, scallion and blk pepper. Butter one side of each slice of bread, spread blue cheese mixture on unbuttered side, top with bacon slices, cover with remaining bread, butter side out.
Place on electric griddle set at 275 degrees or in skillet over med heat, cook 4-5 minutes each side until golden brown and cheese is melted.

The rain has stopped finally. I know we needed it, it had been too dry for Spring, but at the same time it made it so easy to work outside. We are in for an unseasonably warm weekend, I heard 80's. You'll have to tie both hands behind my back to keep the cows off the field. The grass is gonna come alive after that rain and then this sun.
The herb seedlings are really coming up. We have basil, savory, sage, and parsley. Just waiting on rosemary and lemon balm, then I can start the flowers the kids got for Easter. Cosmos, bachelor buttons, marigolds, and nasturtium.
Iris is farrowing right now! I checked her an hour ago and before I even peeked in I could hear her grunting that soft, " come hither " call they do to get their newborns to nurse. She had just gotten started and had 2 little red piglets so far.
Gale's dangling horn came off, it was actually interesting to look at. Can't wait for the process to finish.
Wolfie, our young herdsire, managed to get the weaning ring out of his nose again. Of course Gale has been sucked dry. She is the nurse cow of his choice. Problem is she is tiny, and already nursing 2 calves. Plus he cuts her teats. I didn't need this right now. If I can't find it, I'll need to keep him im a stall until a new one is ordered. It's kind of hard to breed cows, when your bull has to be seperated because he is nursing them. Oh well. I need to preg check them all anyway.
