I am so happy Trish is hosting round 2 of her Pin It and Do It Challenge. I have pinned so many things, recipes, crafts, gift ideas, and her challenge is a good reminder to actually give them a try.

We do a garden every year, with the usual things, tomatoes, peppers, green beans, zucchini, etc., and this year we added a few jalapeno pepper plants. They’re actually in pots, but that’s beside the point. So now we have a bunch of jalapenos and I finally got around to using some the other day in jalapeno popper grilled cheese sandwiches, a recipe I pinned about a month ago.


This picture is from Jo Cooks, because I forgot to take a photo. Mine didn’t look this nice anyway, but they were pretty good. Basically it’s a grilled cheese made with shredded cheddar and marscapone cheese on country white bread with some sliced jalapenos in the middle. I actually used cream cheese instead of the marscapone because it was like half the price and it is just grilled cheese. Really yummy, although next time I’ll add a few more pepper slices, give it a little more of a kick. I don’t know why I never thought of adding cream cheese to a grilled cheese before, really a good idea. David and I both liked them, but Amber wouldn’t even try them. She had a provolone grilled cheese, her favorite, even if she would have preferred it to have pepperoni on it too.

Of course, I served it with tomato soup.

You can find my pin here and the recipe at Jo Cooks.
