I was going to go down the street for dinner tonight, but then I was reading Jancee Dunn's very entertaining memoir But Enough About Me. Dunn describes snorting coke in a nightclub, freaking out, and calling her sister for help. Her brother-in-law comes instead and takes her home. He offers to make her dinner (he's a chef), but her refrigerator is nearly empty. He figures out that he can make her a grilled cheese sandwich. As I read this, I thought Ooh, I haven't had a grilled cheese sandwich in months!
I wonder how often people decide what to eat based on what they read in books (cookbooks excluded).
And yes, that grilled cheese really hit the spot!
