Happy National Grilled Cheese Day! This beloved comfort food should be celebrated everyday, but that won’t stop me from taking a moment to sing its praises today.
Its brilliant simplicity is what makes it so beloved. Only requiring bread, butter, and cheese, even the most challenged of cooks can manage to get it right (most of the time).
You can spice things up a bit by adding some extra flavor. But the beauty of the grilled cheese is that you don’t have to.
Of course, any dish is about more than the food itself. All meals are closely associated with many a memory, and this childhood staple is overflowing for most. I bet you are already thinking about your earliest grilled cheese experience and who it was with.
Or I suppose you could be thinking about what cheese and bread you need to pick up at the store later. Whatever grilled cheese means to you, take today as a reminder to enjoy life’s little pleasures. Bon appetit!
