Childhood Favorites all Grown Up!

   What a busy weekend it's been.  And I can't believe that it's already JUNE.  How did that happen and where did the time go?  I've been helping my parents pack up their house all weekend and I have to say, it's a lot of work to pack up a whole house!  My mom and I made the best of it and pretty much laughed our you-know-what's off the entire weekend.  Needless to say, I'm exhausted and so are my parents, I'm sure. 
  When I got home Sunday night I was craving a grilled cheese sandwich.  Weird for me 'cause I hardly ever eat sandwich's these days but who am I to say no to a craving?  Ha.  I'm thinking the craving was there because I had spent the weekend going through a ton of childhood things.  Nothing says "kid's food" like a good grilled cheese! 

Onto the "recipe"...  ** (apologies for my awesome camera)

   I'm actually kidding, there really is no recipe to this.  I basically made this with what I had on hand, combined with the flavors that I love.
   I recently found Tofutti Cheese Slices at my local supermarket and grabbed a pack to satisfy my curiosity.  The cheese slices actually taste more like cream cheese rather than processed American slices.  I'm not a fan of these eaten cold and on their own, but when they were heated in a sandwich they definitely tasted better.  This cheese doesn't really melt but rather becomes a bit creamy.  I really liked the texture.  If you're looking for a super melty (is that a word?) grilled cheese, Daiya cheese is better for melting and so is this soy cheese that I buy from the Farmer's Market... not sure what it's called? <--- I'll add the name once I remember.  Ha! 

   I used fresh French Bread that my mother forced generously gave me to take home.  I spread some organic yellow mustard and organic Dijon on the inside and just a touch of Earth Balance on the outside of the bread.  Then I added tomato slices and cheese slices, a touch of oregano and cracked black pepper and it was ready for the grill!  I rounded out the meal with a cucumber, tomato salad.  I dressed it with a bit of lime, cracked black pepper and some nutritional yeast.  This meal was so yummy and definitely satisfied my craving for grilled cheese!

What's your favorite way to eat grilled cheese?

  1. You must take me shopping :) I don't know where to find anything in this city!

    1. Goodness Me has a really great selection of organic, vegan, raw and gluten free food. Also, the Metro by my apartment has a really great selection of organic and vegan food. (FYI: not all Metro's are created equal!) Hope this helps ;)
