grilled cheese moldwich

Last night for dinner I had ramen noodles and, thanks to cK’s inspiration, a grilled cheese sandwich. The only problem is that I made the grilled cheese sandwich on bread that was quite possibly a little moldy, and almost certainly up to no good.

That’s gross, right? I know. The problem is that I don’t get paid until Monday and am seriously scraping the bottom of the pantry barrel, so to speak. So I got out this loaf of bread and it had some mold near the back of the loaf, but I inspected the two pieces I took from the front of the loaf very carefully and didn’t see or smell anything out of the ordinary. But I kept wondering if the mold was really there throughout the bread and I could only see it on the back and was eating mold spores accidentally on purpose. And yes, although it pained me, I threw away the rest of the bread.

I’ve had to get a little creative with the food lately. Yesterday for lunch I had leftover hot dog chili.

Here’s what I have to last until Monday:

  • a package of frozen spinach
  • a package of frozen broccoli
  • mango sorbet (I don’t know)
  • club crackers
  • one trail mix bar
  • a couple of packages of ramen
  • a Morningstar Farms spicy black bean burger
  • Diet Coke
  • a buttload of condiments

So eating is interesting to say the least. Luckily, I’m being taken out to dinner tonight so that’ll help.

As you probably discovered for yourself, my site was slow or on strike for the majority of the day yesterday and I was nearly out of my mind with frustration about it. I felt like I was locked out of my house for a day. It’s pretty sad that the first thing I feel like writing about upon my return is the fact that I might have eaten moldy bread for dinner last night.

It’s high quality content like moldy bread eating that keeps you all coming back, I know. That’s the kind of stuff you can count on me for – intermittent downtime, unreliable page load speeds, and icky overshares.

  • Is mango sorbet the new green tea ice cream? WTF? That stuff is everywhere.

  • Coooooooool. When you post your comment it fades in all futuristic like.

    Fades in? Is that an oxymoron?

  • I think grilled cheese is my favorite food, sad as that is.

  • I don’t know what’s up with the mango sorbet being so trendy all of a sudden, but quite honestly, I thought it was overrated. I love fresh mango – it’s one of my favorite fruits – but the sorbet? Bleh. I got Haagen-Dazs (which I just looked up to see how to spell) and it had carrot something and pumpkin something in the ingredients. I thought it tasted like carrot juice. It wasn’t such a good time for me.

  • Wow, lookit the handy-dandy “type here” instructions! I never would have known what to do in this big blank box otherwise!

    1) I love the font of your header. Like, a LOT. So much so that I might be considering leaving Mike to run away with it.
    2) We’re in the same situation you are as far as the lack of food goes, until Sunday, I think. It’s pathetic. Parker AND I will be eating Ramen tonight. We don’t even have any cheese to make grilled cheese moldwiches with, or else we’d be feasting on those tonight as well. Sigh.

  • Thanks! The font is called Teen and you can get it for free here. I used Teen Bold on the first part and Teen Light on the second. I’m in love with it too. Teen is my new Wendy Medium, I think.

    Larabie makes some kickass fonts, and many are free. I’ve used Pupcat and Euphorigenic in past headers, and I’ve been trying to find a way to fit Minya Nouvelle in somewhere but it never looks quite right.

  • We also have the Haagen-Daz Mango Sorbet thanks to my roommate up there that was instructed to bring home lime sherbet. I too noticed the pumpkin and carrot in the ingredients. I thought it was OK overall, but would much prefer sherbert, either lime or orange.

    Grilled cheese is awesome. Especially with avocado and tomato slices. Mmmm.

  • Sistah, you gots the diet Coke. What else is there?

  • moldy moldy breeeeeeeead

  • Moldy bread is totally acceptable. i’ve been known to eat it from time to time…

  • Incredible. I think I’ve inspired a serious grilled-cheese-eatin’ craze.
