These are my confessions: i don’t know how to make a grilled cheese
As a child my mom used to make us grilled cheese sammies to eat with chicken noodle, campbells condensed of course, but she used American sliced cheese. Now, I wouldn’t say I’m a food snob but I definitely refuse to eat processed cheese. It scares me how fast that crap melts; it’s just not right. Well, as a mother of two baby boys I don’t wanna be that lame mom that says, “NO jude! you cannot have (insert weird food here).” Like, I love me some Top Ramen, oriental flavor with a little tobasco. It’s not something i keep in my pantry but there are times I wish I did. By the way, it’s literally the best meal to eat the morning after a few serious libations. I try to create ways to prepare the processed nasty in a whole food way. so in this experiment, i made a grilled cheese, whole wheat, shredded cheddar and i used veganaise on the out side of the bread instead of real mayo or butter. Flash forward to two minutes later and the pan side piece of bread now looks like asphalt. Knowing i have little room for error and not wanting to throw away uneaten food, i make the big flip. no, i just stand over the stove checking the bottom every 5 secs. I walked away from the stove on the first side; had to send my bestie day card, y’all. Needless to say, i ate a grilled cheese that looked lie “Two-face” from the Batman movies; Aaron Eckhart version, the real deal. I guess i just need to practice, it’s weird though when i can make a delicious fancy pants meal but can’t make a simple grilled cheese. I’ll figure it out.
Also, I have never eaten a sloppy joe. Why would i want to eat something called “sloppy”?
