Grilled artichoke sun-dried tomato sandwich

This grilled cheese creation contains two of my favorite ingredients on the planet: sun-dried tomatoes and artichokes. Whenever my friend Laurie and I go out to eat together, we both order the item on the menu that has one or both of these ingredients. They are too mouth-watering to pass up. Sauteed skunk liver with sun-dried tomatoes and artichokes? Yum! Sign me up!

I have a hard time looking at these photos without trying to jump into my monitor and bathe myself in artichoke, sun-dried tomato, cheesy yumminess.
