Loaded Caprese Grilled Cheese

Father’s Day is around the corner and whether the baby is here by then or not, I would love to get something for Lou to celebrate him. 🙂 But like what do I get him, a tie? Such a dad gift. 

It’s crazy that we’ve spent our entire lives giving our own parents gifts on Mother’s/Father’s Day and now these holidays are for us too. We are essentially parents (we just haven’t met our kid yet). Wild. 

So if you have any ideas for a good “dad” gift, let me know. Lou got me a massage and facial for Mother’s Day which was a combination of being super sweet and thoughtful and wanting me to go one night without asking him to rub my shoulders. 😉  

What Lou does love is food. I’ve been making this Loaded Caprese Grilled Cheese all the time and he’s a huge fan. The inspo came from this tomato butter and pesto that I had from Nuts.com. It then evolved into a major sandwich with balsamic glazed mushrooms and onions and fresh mozzarella. It’s ridiculously good! Take a look at the video below to see how simple it is to make! And send me your best Father’s Day gift ideas 🙂
