Tastes-Like-Summer Grilled Cheese Sandwich

This grilled cheese on sourdough, topped with parsley pesto and a farm share tomato, was enjoyed on a sunny back porch one recent summery-feeling evening.

The pesto, which we made to use the two big bunches in last week's share, was one we've made before. (Recipe is here. Lazy version: Parsley, garlic, and a couple tablespoons of nuts in the food processor. With the motor running, drizzle in olive oil; when it looks ready, pulse in some Parmesan.) We served the pesto with pasta originally; this is just the leftovers.

The tomato made the sandwich say summer to me, and it also made me feel wicked excited about growing my own. (One of my plants was amputated in the decidedly not-summery-feeling wind and rain storms of a few days ago, but the upside-down one is hanging in there.)
