It’s a Grilled CHEEESSEEEEEEE PARTAYYYYYYYY!!!!!!!! Basically one of my favorite parties ever. And not just because it involved lots of different kinds of cheese, avocados, and rye bread. Well, that might be part of the reason. It was my favorite mainly because it was such an interactive meal with friends! We all sat around the table, constructed our perfect sandwich (or two or three), and got to chat all the while. It was the most low maintenance evening at our home I’ve ever hosted, which helped me to enjoy it so much more as well.

I absolutely love love love hosting friends and family at our place, but I’ve had to learn a fine balance between stressing over every little detail and just doing my best and going with the flow. I’ve started to gravitate more towards the low maintenance meals where the majority of the prep is done ahead of time and all I need to do is pretty much show up at the table and enjoy it! Those are the best.
