Fried egg grilled cheese sandwich

My all time favorite American food is a well done and crisp grilled cheese sandwich.  But this time I gave it a twist I use provolone cheese and put a fried egg in it, it was tasty but is better when you use American cheese!  I will have to say that the egg part was a good addition, so I tried it again with American cheese and it was glorious!!!!  And remember if you want an even and buttery and crispy crust butter the out side of the sandwich all over the bread and use a medium high flame and make sure that your pan in very hot.

Creamy Pasta

Today was a normal day, lots to do! and very little sleep last night I'm felling a little run down huff... So I try to cook something that its easy,  all I thought of doing is pasta! Isn't funny how every time you try to cook something that is fast but filling you end up cooking pasta in any way possible, well at least I do, it's just fast cooking stuff.  So I started with my basics:

a box of thin spaghetti
10 slices of bacon cut into 1 inch square 
8 oz. sour cream
3 tbs of butter
1/2 tbsp of Italian seasoning
1 tsp of red pepper flakes
5 cloves of garlic
salt and pepper to taste

Cook the bacon on a pan until crisp you could also cook it in the oven at 375dg for 8 to 10 min.
Cook your pasta on a large pot of boiling water.
On a large skillet melt the butter and saute the garlic just to flavor the butter take garlic out before burning, add the sour cream and the cooked bacon add the spices and the pasta mix well, serve and top with roasted onions or chopped parsley.
On a large skillet at low medium heat melt the butter add the whole garlic and saute until garlic changes color to a little translucent, take the garlic out and add  the sour cream, bacon,
