I've started doing mine in the oven (I am feeding 6 of us) and I think it tastes even better than pan grilled cheese, the outside is crunchy and the inside nice and gooey. OH and the Williams Sonoma panini press makes an amazing grilled cheese, especially with ham and sliced green apples added. My other fave thing is grilled cheese and broccoli!

I am so gonna make these, and then cover them with something healthy like whipped cream and pop rocks. Awesome idea!

ANNA!

My husband and I had a GORGEOUS modernist sofa from Highbrow Furniture that we purchased for about $5,000. It was originally covered in some sort of tweed and it lasted maybe 4 months before the cats ripped it to shreds and someone spilled something on it. The couch had amazing lines and we could not see parting with it so we had it reupholstered in Crypton, a velvety-looking pale grey, for the price of about $1500, some cushions were restuffed as well.

We had it done about 5 years ago. Since then I have had kids puke on it numerous times, red wine spilled on it, coffee, markers drawn on it (red, mind you), food, well, you can imagine with 4 kids.

EVERYTHING has come off of it usually using a baby wipe or slightly damp cloth.

I remove my covers and toss them in the wash maybe once a year and my sofa looks brand new.

I LOVE Crypton sooooo much. For a family with kids getting our sofa done in it was the best purchase ever. I plan on redoing it again this year just so we can have a new colour. I can't say enough how much I love this material. It is a marvel, really. I will never own another big piece of furniture that is NOT done in Crypton, it makes my life so much easier because I never worry about what happens to the couch, I know I can always make it look new.

I am so very different from everyone here!

I would bring with a pile of super creepy cabin movies, everything from the terribly campy Evil Dead and Eli Roth's Cabin Fever, to Lars Von Trier's Antichrist which is awful and pretentious and amazingly hard to watch. Also, as someone else said box sets, Breaking Bad, The Office (ONLY the UK version with Ricky Gervais), Arrested Development.. And tons of bad candy and popcorn.

Books and magazines, I am not sure my husband would even set foot in a cabin without Monocle and Wallpaper*.

Something like Table Topics for Couples http://www.amazon.com/Table-Topics-Conversation-Cards-Couples/dp/B000FN69PC/ref=sr_1_10?ie=UTF8&s=toys-and-games&qid=1264338557&sr=8-10, playing cards, Scrabble.

You could also start filling out a book like this together: http://www.amazon.com/All-About-Us-Philipp-Keel/dp/0767905016/ref=sr_1_1?ie=UTF8&s=books&qid=1264338839&sr=8-1

I would bring with food I don't have to cook, wine, bread, crackers, nice cheese, apples, salami, some things to cook a nice breakfast but mainly just picnic type food.

Sordid lingerie so you can be Little Red Riding Hood and he can be the brave lumberjack..

I think if I suggested to my spouse we go to a cabin he would say "A cabin means the Soho in London, riiiiiiight?"

Have fun, I'm jealous!

Meg is so awesome, truly talented and super cute stuff. There is also a way you can create and print these at home at http://play-zone.crayola.com/play-zone/index.htm#/LCC, by entering a code from a package of Crayola crayons. I searched the web and found a one-day code, PR24QCHT, which gives you 24 hours to upload your pics and print them. Granted you would have to bind them in a cute book like meg did by yourself, but fun to mess around with.
