The very kind people at CSN recently contacted me to sponsor a giveaway; the prize is a $65 gift card to use on any CSN website.  I’m excited to host this giveaway since CSN has anything a girl (or guy!) could want…including everything from cute handbags, to cookware, to console tables!

International readers can participate and as always, you don’t need to have a blog to enter.  To participate, you can do any or all of the following (the more you do, the greater your chances of winning!).  Please leave a separate comment for each so I can count it as another entry:

This giveaway ends October 19 at 9PM EST; after that I’ll use a random number generator to determine the winner.  Good luck to all! 

And now a little bit about apples.  I’ve been drowning in them, but with my at-least-an-apple-a-day obsession you won’t hear any complaints from me.  This sandwich is nice sweet twist on grilled cheese.  I like to serve it alongside a salad of baby greens, chopped apples, raisins, and a sprinkle of walnuts, dressed with apple cider vinaigrette. 

Camembert, Apple, and Walnut Grilled Cheese Sandwiches

(Yield:  2 servings)

2 large slices country bread, cut in half so that you have 4 pieces

2 oz Camembert cheese, thinly sliced

1 small sweet-tart apple (such as Cortland), washed, dried, and thinly sliced

2 tsp chopped walnuts

1 TB butter

2 tsp honey, to drizzle on top

On one piece of bread, arrange 1 oz cheese and top with 1 tsp walnuts; arrange 1/2 of the sliced apple on top and place another piece of bread on top of the apple.  Make the second sandwich in the same way.

Add the butter to a medium-sized skillet over medium heat; once the butter is almost all melted, add the sandwiches and turn down the heat to medium-low.  Cook until golden brown on both sides (about 2-3 minutes per side), gently pressing the sandwiches down while cooking. 

Serve with honey drizzled on top.

Homemade Chewy Country Oat Bread…I couldn’t resist making it again.  :)

    What a lovely giveaway…this sounds like such a small item, but I’m in desperate need of a pastry cutter! Mine broke in our move, and I’ve been making do with my hands and a pair of forks. And your sandwich sounds just heavenly. I love pairing apples with strong cheeses like camembert…especially when toasted bread is involved. You have made my lunch look very boring (but now I have inspiration for tomorrow!) Thanks for sharing, love!
