This is inspired by a place by my work that does something similar, but with pear compote.

Ingredients:

* Sharp white cheddar (mine came from CostCo, the Coastal stuff)
* Rosemary bread (mine came from Trader Joe's)
* Lemon curd (another thing from Trader Joe's)
* Butter (I did unsalted, the cheddar is plenty salty enough)

Tools:

* Toaster Oven
* Frying pan and oven

Steps:

* Lightly toast one side of the rosemary bread in the oven
* One one slice of rosemary bread, put a pile of chopped up white cheddar chunks on the toasted side. Put it back into the toaster oven until the cheese gets pretty melty.
* While that's going on, spread lemon curd on the other piece of bread, on the toasted side.
* Put a pat of butter in your frying pan and melt it
* Take your melted cheesy bread out of the toaster oven, put both pieces together so the cheese of one side is against the lemon curd of the other
* Put your sandwich into the pan, swish it around, flip it to the other side--this will make sure that both sides have butter as you pan toast.
* Toast both sides of your sandwich in the pan with the butter, flipping as necessary. When it's toasted to your liking, put it on a plate.
* Tada! Fancy grilled cheese.

Fic exchange success!

For Not Prime Time, I received an adorable BACCANO! fic, Chane LaForet Sorts Out Her Feelings After Breaking a Man's Arm - despite the title, there is considerably less violence than in canon, and considerably more introspection, which makes sense given Chane is the viewpoint character. But there's a gorgeous swelling emotion in the fic, like being on the top of a rising wave, because Claire might be the kind of guy who instantly falls in love (and means it), but Chane needs to think things through. (Also the writing style closely resembles that of a good friend, but she swears she didn't write it, so I eagerly await Friday and finding out who my friend's writing-doppelganger is.)

I wrote for a fandom I've never written before, and a pairing that I hadn't originally offered. Whee? But my recipient loved it, and so did other people, so I can bask in Achievement Unlocked: New Fandom/Pairing. :-D
