Getting together with friends can prove challenging sometimes. Where to meet, when to meet, and what to do are hard questions to answer when you are synchronizing 3 schedules. We finally decided on a date which left where and what. After discussing places to eat I decided to ask my friends to come over to my place. Simple grilled cheese sandwiches were the cuisine of choice. The weather has been rainy and cool and there is nothing like comfort food on a chilly day! We used a raclette so that everyone could make there own sandwiches. I laid out a spread of meat and cheese and baked some no-knead bread. My friends brought over some meal supplements – tea, chips and artichoke dip, and cookies. Raclette, in the simplest explanation, is a clean version of fondue. We enjoyed sitting around the raclette grill, talking and laughing, while we waited for our bread to toast and cheese to melt. It was the perfect way to catch up and feed our hungry stomachs.
