Strawberry Goat Cheese Grilled Cheese

Happy Spring! Today is the first day of spring and the showers are here in LA. It will be raining and cold all day long, so I am staying in my PJs on the couch. J is working and I have an awful headache...yuck! One of my favorites, Sex and the City, the Movie is on TV so I am a happy girl, except for the pain behind the eyes....
In honor Spring and the return on some of my favorite fruits and veggies, here is a yummy new sandwich for you!!

Strawberry Goat Cheese Grilled Cheese

1-2 Tb goat cheese (softened)
