Yummy Bacon Cheddar Melt + Hellman's Sweepstakes!

Okay - so we have discovered this really yummy sandwich in our house! It is super simple to make and my husband died over how good it was, and he's a chef so it's hard to impress him!

Just take a slice of sourdough bread and top it with a slice of cheddar cheese, then 1 strip of cooked bacon (microwave ready ones, if you really want to cut down on prep time), the 4 thin slices of apples, 1 more strip of bacon, and another slice of cheddar cheese. Then top it off with another slice of sourdough. Spread the outside of the sandwich with Hellmann's Mayonnaise and grill it up on a skillet over minute heat for a few minutes on each side. If you need to get your cheese a little more melty, (is that a word?) just pop it in the oven for a minute.

My kids even love this sandwich. Did you know that 33 percent of Americans who eat sandwiches credit their mom with teaching them how to make a great sandwich? Nearly three-quarters of moms with sandwich-loving kids say the serve their families the favorites they ate growing up!

With that, I want to give you an opportunity to win a $5000 grocery giftcard by entering the Hellmann's® Build Your Perfect Sandwich Sweepstakes!

We'll be there with bells on

So I am a huge fan of alternative wording on wedding invitations. Here is a great example of a humorously worded rsvp card. via weddingbee

Meal Choice Escort Cards

A very popular question that I get asked a lot is, how do I indicate what meals my guests are to be served? I came across this lovely idea that is super easy to carry out. Once you've got all of your rsvp's returned with your guests marking their beef/chicken/fish/veggie entreĆ©,  divide them up by choice and assign a ribbon color to each category. Then simply take a folded escort card and punch a hole in the front. Then glue a strip of ribbon to the inside, covering the hole. This will make a simplistic color coordinated statement to your guests, while making a food choice statement to your wait staff. Fabulous and easy!
