This is not the sandwich I had planned to make and share today, but someone left the Chipotle mayo at work (shhh, it was Anthony). I’ve been seeing a commercial for some brand of mayo, can’t remember which one, that says a grilled cheese with mayo instead of butter is so much better. Since my son Anthony and I both love grilled cheese sandwiches every once in a while, I wanted to test that out for myself. Luckily I had all the ingredients.

Not the best photos, but I was in a hurry.






Anthony and I both thought these tasted almost the same as when made with butter except that there was a slight sweet taste to it. We both said we’d rather stick with butter, but mayo would be good for anyone who wouldn’t mind a slightly sweet grilled cheese sandwich.

My daughter and I went to Brownwood Paddock Square, which is like an outdoor mall and has shopping/dining/entertainment. It’s described as being “Reminiscent of an early century Florida cattle town”. We went early in the morning, about a half hour before most stores opened, so we could explore at a slow pace and really check everything out. It’s a really cool place and a lot of people go during the day for the shops, movie theaters (3) and restaurants. They have a large entertainment area and have live bands etc. at night, so it’s really hopping then and on the weekends. We really enjoyed the time we spent there, and would like to go back soon. We saw this feller sitting on a fence and I had to take a photo of him.

One of the things I really wanted to do the week we were in NYC for the Macy’s Thanksgiving Day Parade, was to go to Donna Bell’s Bakeshop, owned by Pauley Perrette (Abby on NCIS) and two of her friends.

As you can see on the window, the shop specializes in all-natural Southern baked goods and savories. We went first thing in the morning and we each got a breakfast sandwich, and they were yummy!

The bake shop is named in honor of Pauley’s beloved late mother.

They also have a few items they sell on the website. If you’d like to read my review of the book, go here
