The KimCheeze Kick



Whoa. So I just did pilates for the first time in a very long time and let me tell you something - omg wtf... I think I broke my body! How did this happen? I know I've used winter as one of my favorite excuses to be lazy, and sure, having a broken arm definitely didn't help my fit(less)ness. But c'mon! I thought I could at least get through a few blogilates classes before I was knocked out, panting on the floor, flabs throbbing, reaching for a bottle of water like I had woken up from the worst hangover of my life.


This is definitely not the way I thought my little fitness routine would be when I decided to "start working out" earlier today. It's only been about thirty minutes since I've given up and I'm already sore. Walking down two flights of stairs to take my little pup, Pippy, out was torturous. Squatting down to pick up his poop... even more excruciating. I'm just going to go ahead and say this: working out SUCKS. Yeah, yeah, it's great for you blah blah blah but how the hell do you make yourself to do it when it's so hard and not fun? And maybe I'm crazy, but is it possible that I could have a headache from doing it for approximately 25 minutes? Or is it my brain's way of punishing me for being a complete blob all of 2013? Whatever it is, I'm not into it. There's got to be a better way to get bikini ready (yeah, I'm a little late for this one, i know i know) other than by dieting because there's no way that I'm cutting anything out of my diet. I'm just not one for that kind of lifestyle. I'm not good at it. I'm a grilled cheese kind of gal. Take that away from me and I'm nuffin!

I am motivated though. That's one thing I've got going for me. Whenever I see Kate Upton prancing around in that infamous cat daddy video, it serves as my mental catalyst to try, try again. In the meantime, here's a grilled cheese that is probably not going to help me reach my Victoria Secret model body anytime soon, like at all, but it does taste hella good. Sweet chunks of ripe pineapple brighten up spicy kimchi, while cream cheese and cheddar combine to make a creamy mouthfeel, and crunchy, thick slices of Texas toast hold it all together.

Go and getcha some of these!



Ingredients:

-2 tbs Wisconsin cheddar (I'm into Carr Valley)
-2 tbsp cream cheese
-2 tbsp pineapple, thinly sliced
-2 tbsp Mother-In-Law's Kimchi
-2 pats of salted butter
-2 slices of Texas Toast










Start out by combining your kimchi with the cheddar and cream cheese. Twist it up gurl.


Once it's evenly mixed, it'll sort of taste and resemble an Asian pimento cheese spread. You can eat this by the spoonful. It's totally fine, don't let anyone tell you not to.


If you still have some left, i know you tried more than a bite, then spread it all on to one piece of the Texas toast. Is spreading a thick cheese substance considered an arm workout?


Now sprinkle it with a few chunks of pineapple. OMG! Did I just inadvertently do something healthy? Awesome. *high fives*


Top it with the other piece of toast and admire. Just think, you're going to get to eat this delicious thing in a minute!


Butter both sides of the sandwich and turn your heat to medium. Place it in and let it cook. Flip it when it gets as golden as your future bronzed self. Repeat. Laugh at my jokes.  


Once it's all done, it's time to take it off the heat and allow it to cool - letting all those crazy flavors seep into one another and stiffening up just enough so that it doesn't ooze out all over your plate when you cut into it.


So all in all, i hope you enjoyed this sandwich recipe but I hope even more so that I'll be able to do more than 25 minutes worth of pilates tomorrow. Goals, pffffff. am I right?

xoxo,

GCS

  1. When I first saw the title of this post I thought you were naming a grilled cheese after Kim & Kanye's bebe. Kimcheeze West. Has a nice ring to it...
