I'm so freaking proud. I was on my way to Panera the other day - it was cold and rainy, I thought it was the perfect day to indulge in their deliciously cheesy "grown up grilled cheese" and a cup of soup. But then I realized - if I get that, I'll have to get a latte. It's the "If you give a mouse a cookie" effect! I can't go into Panera without getting a caramel latte, no whip. So why would I pay $12 for lunch I can make at home? No wonder my food goes bad before I eat it...
So I saved myself the money (and probably some calories) by going home instead and making a grilled cheese (with avocado and spinach - even better!). Plus I made coffee, and I wasn't even hungry enough for soup. BAM! Easy extra $12 in my account.
I'm not one to take pictures of my food, but I had to show you the homemade, better than Panera, grilled cheese. Yes, that's on a coffee cup saucer. I need to do dishes, don't judge.
