I used to have five year plans. These days I'm just trying to end up with the right regrets.

how to make perfect cheese toast
toast your bread (in this case, a sourdough english muffin) in the toaster to the point where it’s just *barely* under toasted
slice up some cheese (goat milk chedder here) thinly, and layer on the toast evenly. Thinner slices melt better, even when you have a bunch of them
put under the broiler for approximately 3 minutes, until the cheese just starts to get toasty brown spots
top with slices of very ripe tomato (these green ones are from our CSA box and were killer)
salt and pepper to taste
note: the pre-toasting is crucial, without it the bread won’t get toasted enough under the cheese, resulting in a lackluster cheese toast experience.
