In case you didn't notice my unusually long absence it's because I was without internet access in New York. Of all places to not be connected to the wireless world, right? The internet wasn't working at the hotel so after one failed attempt I gave up and decided to have a weekend away from the computer. I'm not saying I was completely shut off from the world but it was nice and so much more simple. It seemed that it was a reminder that I was there to enjoy time with my family and not there to be putting up blog posts or anything of the sorts.
And because of that simplified weekend away from the computer...it has taken me a few days to get the motivation to get back to it. So thank you for your patience.
I thought I would go ahead and share this recipe that I've been holding on to because it reminds me so much of fall...and I can't tell you how ready I am for that crisp New England air to start blowing in. You better believe that within a few short weeks I will be picking my own apples to make this sandwich again. It's one of my favorite New England activities.
Have you been to New England in the fall? No? Well, it's even more beautiful than they say. You should make your way here this fall. Or at least go google some pictures. It will have you wanting an apple pie or a cup of hot tea in no time.
2 croissants (or bread)
1 apple, cored and sliced
1 tablespoon butter
1 tablespoon brown sugar
1/4 teaspoon cinnamon
pinch of nutmeg (optional)
4 thick slices of your favorite cheddar cheese
Preheat oven to 250°. In a medium skillet melt butter over low heat. Add apple, brown sugar, cinnamon, and nutmeg. Saute for 10-15 minutes or until apples are tender. Assemble croissant by placing two slices of cheese on each croissant and dividing the apples evenly between the two. Place the entire sandwich in the oven for approximately 5 minutes to melt the cheese. Serve/eat immediately and enjoy!
