Alllllll byyyy myyyy seee-eh-eelf

FYI, you’re supposed to sing (go to 0:58) the title of the post.

Well, it’s crunch time at school. And I’m alone tonight, trying to cram down some food between doing the massive amounts of paper writing, presentation making, and number crunching I have to do before the semester winds to a close in two weeks. BUT that doesn’t mean I don’t have time for a good meal. Or sorta.

Here is what I’m eating right now:

Looks yummy, huh? A pile of farmer’s market mixed mustard greens grilled cheese on homemade sourdough bread. Except those of you with a keen eye might recognize that orange-yellow goo oozing out of my sandwich as none other than – no! Can it be!? Oh yes, it is. – Kraft American Singles Pasteurized Prepared Cheese Product!

Now, I’m well aware that just even having this stuff in the fridge soils our reputation, and that reporting it here is close to food blogger suicide. But what can I say? Paul occasionally cooks for small children at work, as you all know, and sometimes they have leftovers. And a few months ago, they made grilled cheese on the cheap (a.k.a., out of Paul’s pocket, because they didn’t have cooking club funds) and had 3 packages of leftover Kraft Singles. Lucky us! And, because this stuff lasts forever, I only just tonight opened up the last package.

And you know what? It was absolutely every bit as delicious as the kids on the commercials make it look.

So there.
