My partner Doug tipped me to this menu for a grilled cheese restaurant, which sounds quite tasty.

Then I saw the section on grilled cheese donuts (apparently, this is a thing) and thought, wow, Stylet would be all over that. He eats so much junk.

Tom and Chee!

I actually don't know if that's the name of that one; but we have one that's called that here in Indy and they sell grilled cheese doughnuts. My best friend and I want to go there some day, but since it's all the way on the north side and we can't get there in a cost effective manner that's...not going to happen until we both have jobs and money. xd

But yes, I could see Stylet being so totally down for something like that.

o.o I guessed right, even without being able to get at the menu! xddd

I'd give you the address, but I'd have to google it first. He.

But holy wow the flying pig. ... I mean I know it's not a doughnut ((I don't think?) but it still sounds good as hell!

Holy wow, that sounds good!

I like trying new foods, too, I just...don't have anyone able to cookthem up for us. I'm not good at making recipes I haven't maid before without tutoring sometimes, especially ones that take time to get down, so I'm sometimes at a loss as to what to do with certain ingredients.

"Until golden" always gets me-because sometimes it's hard to know by sound when something is done enough. Especially vegies.

www.blindmicemart.com

also has an assortment of cookbooks, some of which can be purchased in Brialle, I believer, but...now the foodgeek in all of us is squeeeing!

(Del and Jay will enjoy these; those boys can cook in their world like nothing else. Del does amazing sushi, and Jay goes more for the African American style food (Except for KY; he leaves that to someone else most times), and all of it's good. xd

I didn't think about the timer thing for the vegies, so thanks for that. I can tell most time where the edges of the pan are, especially if I follow a spatchula down to the food; I do that most times with grilled cheese when I make them to make sure the bread is done enough, it's no different with tortillas.

...but no salomi, not yet, so that one will have to wait. ...although ham might work if I can find tomatoes to puray in the ninja. xd

Yep it could be. Unfortunately the skills from their world don't usually transfer to the physical unless the body already has the basics down. :( However cornbread is yum, and there's a friend of ours who's promised to teach us soshi making when we finally get back in the same square foot area, so we're excited. :d.

Oooh all good information! :dddd now if only we could get sautéing down...

Also, I didn't know you could oven roast vegies, yea! I mean...other than potatoes, but.

Technically, I think ghee is butter clarified and cooked carefully until brown. Trader Joe's sells what they call ghee, but it's really just clarified butter. I've been wrong before, of course. Like, last Tuesday, when I thought I'd made a mistake? I hadn't; so, I was wrong about that, and see how easily I admit it?

You(generic) can clarify butter on your own - cook butter gently until the solids fall to the bottom of the pan, and strain it through cheese cloth. The solids can be good on popcorn if unburnt. If you're going to put the solids on popcorn, you don't even need to strain - just skim all the butter oil off and leave a bit behind for the popcorn.

Someday, someone will tell me that roasting broccoli until it's tiny bits are crunchy is bad for me, and on that day... well, I reckon I'll eat a bit of the broccoli raw before roasting the rest. Brussels sprouts roast well too - done right, they're as tasty as popcorn (but much lower carb).

One day I bragged that I was going to be a proper Whovillian (I can't say Whovian, although Horton may have found some who discovered a bug in Gallifreyen tech) and have their Christmas supper - roast beets! (instead of "beast", you see) It turned out pretty good, though temperature had to be carefully controlled - burned beets are awful.

You always make me hungry. First I wanted curry, now I want a grilled cheese and tomato sandwich with creamy tomato soup. Nom. Nom. Though I do have my doubts about a cheese donut. I do like cheese danish so maybe it's better than it sounds. Hmmm.

I had a grilled mac-and-cheese sandwich from a food truck in Pasadena. It was good, but apparently I'm a bit of a purist -- having had it once, I feel no desire to have it again. Exotic cheese on my sandwich is one thing, but the mac-and-cheese just didn't feel right.

Grilled cheese on donuts would hit squarely on my "this is something that shouldn't be sweet" button, so you can have my share of those. :-) The sweet + savory mix is very hard to get in a format that doesn't make me go EW. Grilled cheese on an onion bagel, OTOH...

Ooh... actually, fried noodles cooked carefully can be a Great Goodness, and just a carefully fried block of mac&cheese could be amazing, though not likely as easily consumed as the average sandwich. If they put that between two paper-thin slices of bread, though....

It sounds like a good place. I have to say, though, I was spoiled by the student snack bar (subsidized by the university) where a grilled cheese sandwich was something like 95 cents. It's not fair but I keep expecting every restaurant to have a cheap grilled cheese sandwich that one could order one for a snack, two for the main part of a meal. All too often, they're bumping up against the price of a burger.

College was nearly 30 years ago, but that pattern is still grilled into my brain.
