I had a Greek Chicken Salad.... which is chicken and a basil kalamata tapenade and feta cheese on baby spinach. AWESOME!

Jean had the Rustic Italian Salad with candied lemon, Parmesan, pine nuts, and a balsamic reduction on mixed greens.
Had a nice conversation with Dustin, The Vine owner and chef.

Then off to Safeway for groceries. I had a GREAT time because I ran into my pal Jeannie whom I haven't seen in forever! We yackity yacked for a while. So good to see you girl!!!! ox

National Grilled Cheese Sandwich Day is observed annually on April 12th.  Listed in a reader’s opinion poll, Grilled Cheese Sandwiches are among one of the top comfort foods in the United States.
According to food historians, cooked bread and cheese is an ancient food, enjoyed across the world in many cultures.  The United States modern version of the grilled cheese sandwich originated in the 1920s when inexpensive sliced bread and American cheese became easily available. Originally it was made as an open-faced sandwich.
United States government cookbooks describe Navy cooks broiling “American cheese filling sandwiches” during World War II.
Grilled cheese sandwiches are versatile thanks to the ability to mix and match cheeses, bread, and seasonings.  Adding sauteed vegetables or herb-infused oils can elevate this simple comfort food to a whole other level.  
Enjoy the following tried and true recipes.
