When harvest time rolls around every fall, my hubby farmer is literally working 20 hour days coming in the house late at night only to pass out in the chair before starting all over the next morning. It's crazy.
So it's more important than ever to get some good, nutritious, energy-providing food into his hard-working farmer belly. And let's not forget about the guys working alongside him into the wee hours of the morning.
It depends, but most of the time the
boys men eat in the tractor/combine/truck, so they need food that's uber portable and easy to eat on-the-go.
Sandwiches, wraps, soup in a thermos ... food they don't need silverware for seems to work the best for our farmers. Fast food is convenient, but it gets old. Nothing is better than a little home-cooked goodness and it makes me feel like I am helping out a little too, so win-win.
Grilled cheese is easy and always a family favorite, but I like to spice up my grilled cheese once-and-a-while. Below are three fun grilled cheese recipes for everyone in your family including those hard-working farmers out in the field this fall.
I learned a little trick from Leah at Beyer Beware ... instead of buttering the bread by hand with a knife, slice a tablespoon of butter and let it start to melt in medium-hot pan. It gets the edges of the bread just crispy enough and full of buttery-good flavor.

Add a layer of pepperonis in between two slices of American Cheese. Yummo!
