National Grilled Cheese Day

Yesterday was my 25th birthday, but all I could think about all day is “I can’t wait for tomorrow.” Because birthdays are not nearly as exciting or as important as today. Grilled cheese is the perfect food. And I think that I did it justice.

I was going to make grilled cheese for all three meals, but we had a barbecue at work today. So I only made it for breakfast and dinner. I didn’t just make plain old grilled cheese. Oh no. I went all out.

I started my day with something I’ve dubbed Breakfast Grilled Cheese. I started with these ingredients:

Rye bread, eggs, turkey bacon, butter, and mild cheddar cheese.

For dinner, I created my true masterpiece. Pesto Avocado Mozzarella Grilled Cheese.

I started with this:

However, I did salvage it to look like this:

My verdict? This is possibly the perfect sandwich, if not the most perfect execution. Seriously, this was so incredibly good. I would totally eat this every day, but I have to at least pretend to be healthy. Sometimes. Maybe.
