I caved!

I was minding my own business after comming home from an emergency call into work. My wife asked me to make her a grilled cheese sandwich, with Velveeta. I said ok. I made the sandwich for her and it was done perfectly, golden-brown on both sides, with a light amount of cheese melted in between the grilled bread slices.

Now the last thing I wanted to do on a Friday night was to stuff my own face with something as yummy and unhealthy as a grilled cheese sandwich. But I took one look at that beauty that sat before me as I took it to my wife, and I caved. Guess what I'm eating right now. Only mine has pleeeenty of melted cheese oozing from between the grilled bread slices.

I really don't need these extra calories, even if they are on whole wheat bread. I'm feeling a bit like a right now. But I'm a happy one.

Oh how can I be so weak?

Seeeeeya; Goodweed of the North

You're not weak because of giving into a food wish, you're weak because you are still in love with your wife...and there's nothing wrong with that. As a matter of fact, there's everything RIGHT about that. Have another Velveeta grilled cheese on Buck and me. We're right behind you.

Loving my wife has nothing to do with this. I made the sandwich for her because I absolutely love her. And yes, that's a very good thing.

I made the sandwich for me because I love a good grilled cheese sandwich. And if I hadn't aready had supper, and wasn't really hungry... Well, you get the idea.
You really aren't helping my waistline any. You know that don't you? But thanks for the kind words. You lift my spirit, and that's a good thing.

I, like you, too, caved this week.
Well, I told my husband I was hungry.
He got up off the couch and asked what I wanted.
I said, "just a grilled cheese sandwich, honey."
He brought me his version of a masterpiece.
He opted for sliced ham inside and thin little slices of onion, just how he likes his, only sans meat, add tomatoes.
I took a bite, and realized he's sneaked extra stuff in there but not wanting to delete his pride and manliness, I took a bite with pure pride.
It was wonderful. Ooey, gooey, yummy, melting molten yellow stuff. Oh, and mine was on 6 fiber a slice bread so I figured it really doesn't count, right?

Glad you enjoyed yours GWOFN

Darn it, I have been repressing an urge for Velveeta.

A toasted sandwich with Velveeta, maybe with bacon and tomato slices, on a cold Sunday night - golly that is comfort food.

Being the muddler I am, I would probably add a tad of Worchestershire sauce and maybe a slice of red onion.

Have had it.

I like Velveeta, and I am proud.

Could be worse, Goodweed. I have to work aound good, tasty, and decidedly "unhealthy" foods 5 days a week. Sauting in clarified butter, lots of cream sauces, etc.

Is it any wonder that the laundry service delivery driver says that he rarely gets requests for "smaller" uniforms?

I'm glad to see you caved to a simple pleasure like that.

You should see me caving to the simple pleasure of smoked venison.
