So, am I understanding this correctly? The jelly goes on the outside of the sandwich after grilling, right? Not inside with the cheese? It sounds absolutely delicious. I will definitely try this.

nope. just jelly on one side, cheese on the other! butter the outsides and brown in a pan!

I'm thinking crusty sourdough bread with sharp cheddar, brie and pears would make for a fantastic sandwich. I just need Passover to be over to try it out  Tongue

gourmet style. i like!!

i saw this on one of those food network shows... it wasn't "rocher on the road".... but that one where the younger guy would just go out in public and try things and make things for people ('midnight eats' maybe??)...

ETA - after looking it up, it's HAM ON THE STREET... anyway, it's an older show, and for some reason this morning i remembered it an got curious...

so would anyone try with me... grilled cheese and jelly???

here's my muenster and peach preserves sandwich:

it looks good... it smells good.... and everyone on the show suprisingly liked it, i remember. i also heard raspberry and cheddar, swiss and grape are good combinations, but he was just drawing them out of a hat!

so.... are you brave enough? adventurous enough? i'd really like to know what people think of this!

it turned out really pretty!!!!

come see my booties!
5  CROCHET / Crochet: Completed Projects / Re: hooky goodness - a bunch of projects! Hats, scarves, mittens, slippers... on: April 06, 2009 07:47:30 AM
i whipped up these little babies after looking at pattern after pattern on various sites around the web. (and two trips to the craft store)
i found one i liked, but after wasting two hours just trying to get the sole to come out right, i gave up and made up my own pattern!

for my coworker's baby shower, i give you.... ruffle-tie booties!

i used bernat baby jacquard and a 3.5 mm hook
gauge: 6sc per 1"

abbreviations used (U.S.)
ch = chain
st = stitch
ss = slip stitch
hdc = half double crochet
sc = single crochet
sc2tog = single crochet 2 together

to start my round projects, i usually just tie a square knot of yarn around my hook, leaving a bit of play in the size of the loop, then when all is said and done i take the end that was left and cross it over the opening to close the space in the center (if there even is one)

Round 1: ch1 in loop, hdc6 in loop, join w/ ss
Round 2: ch2, 2hdc in each (12hdc), join w/ ss
Round 3: ch2, [1hdc in first st, 2hdc in next], repeat [] around, join w/ ss (18hdc)
Round 4: ch2, [1hdc in first 2st, 2hdc in next], repeat [] around, join w/ ss (24 hdc)

Round 5: ch1, sc in each st, join w/ ss (24 sc)
* Repeat round 5 four more times * (5 rounds sc)

ROW 10: ch1, turn work, sc19 across
* Repeat Row 15 more times * (16 rows sc)

Turn bootie inside out; from the top, ss top 8 stitches together, leaving three unstitched at the bottom.
Tie off and weave in ends

For top: around foot and heel only, not toe!
Row 1: sc across top, (31 sc)
Row 2: ch1, turn work, sc2tog, sc in next 27, last two sc2tog
Row 3: ch1, turn work, sc2tog, sc in next 23, last two sc2tog
Row 4: ch1, turn work, sc2tog, [ch1, skip st, sc1 in next], repeat [] to last two st, sc2 tog
Row 5: ch1, turn work, sc in each (use space below ch st)
Row 6; ch1, turn work, sc3 in each to create ruffle
Tie off and weave in ends

To finish: Braid a length of yarn, weave through spaces made in Row4 of top, tie over your cutie's feet!!

thanks for looking! c&c appreciated!

just to let you all know -

here's what i have left over from this month's swap -
tote bags + fabric paints

they'll be going to the re-sale store (or goodwill) unless one of you wants them! you don't have to claim them formally, since i won't be on the lists anymore, but pm me if you'd like them and i'll send them to you (sorry internationals, US only please! you understand how expensive shipping can be...)
