I came across a wonderful book entitled Grilled Cheese, Please: 50 Scrumptiously Cheesy Recipes by Laura Werlin. Doesn't that sound TDF?! Once it gets cooler, I vow to make each and every one of the sandwiches in this cookbook because for me nothing says comfort food like a perfectly grilled cheese sandwich that is lightly salted and buttered on each side. With tomato soup, of course.
When I was a kid, nothing was better than a grilled cheese sandwich, although it had to be cheddar cheese and it could only be made by Mom. Not Swiss cheese either or anything with stuff in it like blue cheese. Just cheddar, only cheddar, thank you very much.
Home from school with a cold or flu as a kid? Mom made grilled cheese sandwiches and tomato soup.
A snow day? Grilled cheese and tomato soup. Sub-zero temps and snow that crept up the side of the house? Grilled cheese and tomato soup. I think grilled cheese was the chicken soup for the kid's soul.
Why am I thinking of winter when it's 110 degrees outside? Wishful thinking? I have no idea.
Anyway, good memories. I absolutely must order this book. I hope there is an e-book version.
