When spring finally offers you a sunshine-and-blue-sky afternoon, you know you better grab it. Drop the routine and head outdoors with your eager child before the rain starts spitting at you again! But as all moms know, when it’s time to go inside everyone still expects you to have dinner ready. That’s where this delicious Grilled Cheese Burger play on a grilled cheese sandwich comes in. It’s a quick way to satisfy everyone and still let you join in the fun.

When we moved into our new house last summer, the beach down the street almost seemed like an extension of our yard. We spent hours on the beach and in the water. This season we’re learning spring breezes moving over the water don’t feel quite as warm.

As long as Sam and our dogs keep us moving—and they do—the sand, sky, and fresh air feel like glorious freedom, especially to a winter-weary seven-year-old. And his mom.

Sam’s grin promises he doesn’t mind rosy cheeks and a cold nose.  But all that running and jumping sure does work up appetites.

We love all that ooey, gooey cheese anytime but if you don’t have excellent bread, you don’t have a sandwich. Dempster’s Breads make my grilled cheese burger especially delicious.
