When I fall in love with a movie, I watch it again and again and again, enjoying it more every time. Dirty Dancing, The Wizard of Oz and Annie were among my early favorites. And in more recent years, I have added Under the Tuscan Sun, Sweet Home Alabama and The Devil Wears Prada to the list too. Yes, I have a thing for cheesy chick flicks. They are relaxing, non-stressful escapes from reality, so I watch them repeatedly. And lest you think I avoid thinking movies, I don’t. I also love classic films, thought-provoking dramas and suspense. But it’s the cheesy chick flicks that I come back to watch again and again.
Speaking of The Devil Wears Prada, there’s a scene in it where Andy (Anne Hathaway) turns down the grilled cheese sandwich her sweet beau has whipped up for her. That sandwich? It was made with a pile of Jarlsberg cheese — a cheese that I am presently obsessed with. When I recently spotted Jarlsberg in the deli counter, ready to be sliced, I knew right where it was going.
Into a grilled cheese in honor of The Devil Wears Prada. I took a little liberty here with the sandwich, adding some sweet deli ham between the layers of my favorite whole grain bread and Jarlsberg cheese. It’s a gooey, cheesy masterpiece. And perfect for whipping up on a cool, rainy fall afternoon while you watch The Devil Wears Prada for the millionth time.
PS: The cute pepper garnish? Just take a pepper and use a mini cookie cutter to cut out a shape. Then, use a toothpick to secure it to the sandwich.
Tell me: Do you have any movies you like to watch again and again?
No need for a disclosure here. All opinions, ideas and thoughts shared here are my own and are NOT compensated. I just really like The Devil Wears Prada. And Jarlsberg cheese. But neither the folks behind the movie or the cheese have any idea who I am.
