I had another Grandma victory!
Amara was here the other evening and decided she was hungry. I was out of all my go to foods that she likes so I suggested I make her a grilled cheese. She gave me “the look”. The look that says, “I am eight and I still don’t like to try new things. You might make it different than Mommy.” Admittedly, Mommy is the better cook. Maybe better is the wrong word she is just better at experimenting with new recipes. I have Grampy, I know better! I explained to Amara that her Mommy has always claimed that I make the very best grilled cheese sandwiches in the whole wide world so she really should try one. She must have been really hungry as she agreed!
Jenna has always raved that my grilled cheese sandwiches are the best. I’ve often accused her of only saying it to get out of making them herself. She always claimed I was wrong, that I simply make the superior grilled cheese.
There is no big secret to my grilled cheese success. I butter both sides of each slice of bread. I make sure the pan is just the perfect temperature (not too hot) and I use Velveeta. I have a nice big lid that I put over the sandwiches so that as they reach the perfect state of golden brown they also reach maximum gooeyness. She loved it! She made a big point of telling me “Mommy was right. You really do make The World’s Best Grilled Cheese Sandwiches.”
Another Grandma Victory!
