-1/2 Armenian cucumber, peeled and thinly sliced
-15 cherry tomatoes, halved

-2 tb mayo

Grilled Cheese Sandwich with Green Salad

Not fancy, but definitely comfort food. We made the grilled cheese in the old sandwich maker (sort of like a waffle maker, but for bread). The salad was just romaine with a homemade vinaigrette.
