What's for lunch?
What are you all eating for lunch? I think it's a tough one. Breakfast has its staples and dinner is carefully planned but lunch is just thrown in there. It's time sensitive, usually rushed, and often unsatisfying.
But then, sometimes lunch is the best. This sandwich is a good lunch.
Cheddar, Pear, and Arugula Melt (with honey & black pepper):
2 slices Anadama bread (Do you know about this bread? When Pigs Fly Bakery makes a version sold in our Whole Foods. Our Grandmother Polly makes a more delicious homemade loaf).
Ripe pear, sliced
Good cheddar, sliced
Honey, a drizzle
Black pepper, a generous amount
I'm not going to insult you by telling you how to make a grilled cheese. My tips are: Use butter, put cheese on both sides on the bread so the pear is "glued" in, and add the arugula in after the sandwich is toasted so it doesn't wilt.
