    “not a fan of the grilled cheese sandwich.”
    ?!?!
    Somebody aint been making it right. If the bread is thoroughly covered in butter and fried to a golden brown, with a thick slab of cheddar cheese, plus a couple of dill pickle spears…it’s awesome!

    I thought Bob had been working for Troy Aikman doing stats work for a few years now, but maybe I misunderstood exactly what he was doing.

    I don’t really know if the First Lady was trying to send a message with her choice of jackets on the first day of summer, but I can’t help but wonder if anyone in the White House has an ounce of common sense when it comes to public relations. Is the place chocked so full of sycophants that no one had the stones to say, “ma’am, that jacket may not be the best thing to wear given current events”? The same question could probably apply to the white nationalist rally permit.

    My kid was a big fan of the grilled cheese sandwich starting around her first birthday. One day when she was left in my charge when she was around 2, I fixed her what I thought was a really solid grilled cheese sandwich for lunch – my wife wouldn’t let me use the individually wrapped Kraft American slices, only the deli style cheddar, for once I hadn’t burned it (for some reason I could never get the timing down). I was feeling good about this sandwich. I even thought about making one for me. I set it in front of her and she took a few bites of it and then just kind of picked at it. I was shocked. She usually devoured them, but she wanted nothing to do with this one. I finally gave up and let her move on to something else and thought I would just finish off what she wouldn’t eat. The first bite was kind of weird with something tough in the middle that wouldn’t let me bite through. I pulled the sandwich apart to discover that I had left the wax paper that separates the cheese slices stuck to the cheese. Great job, Dad. She has never been much of a fan of the grilled cheese since then.

    I’m not sure if you’re dislike of the grilled cheese is as dramatic as my daughter’s, but you’re not alone.

    Pro tip: Use Miracle Whip instead of butter to toast the bread. Game. Changer.

      I’ll have to try that. I should have also pointed out that my wife is a master chef when it comes to grilled cheese. Her trick is sourdough bread and she sprinkles grated parmesan on top of the butter on the outside of the bread.
