Thursday, April 11, 2013

I really have my entire week screwed up. You and my posts can just chill out. 
No, today is not Tuesday but my weekly meals are going to be posted today. Sorry.

Tuesday I had the delicious grilled cheese sandwich with granny smith apples and bacon that A made for me. Unfortunately, I do not have a photo because I was sick.

The remaining meals are as follows.

You can find In-n-Out burger's secret sauce recipe here.
