because it's worthy of it's own post.

a few lists ago
i mentioned an ultimate grilled cheese sandwich.
because of its greatness,
and the gastric nirvana i reached upon its consumption,
i have decided to dedicate an entire post to it.
and begin.

after a friday night trip to best buy, 
the decision was made to eat at zupa's.
whenever i go to zupa's i always get
tomato basil and wisconsin cauliflower soup 
and the tba panini.
{that's code for turkey, bacon avocado}.
i have an obsession with avocados and bacon and turkey,
so it always made sense to go for it.
this time i decided to branch out.
it was a big deal.

i like trying new foods, 
but i don't mess around when it comes to favorite foods.
i'm always afraid i'll order something "new and exciting" 
and end up regretting it.
that's what happened when i decided to get pumpkin ravioli in 2010.
worst.decision.ever.

back to my story.
i took the leap, 
trusted the recommendation, 
and went for it.

you guys.
their ultimate grilled cheese was nothing short of magical.
muenster.
cheddar.
pesto.
tomato.
panini.
mama.freaking.mia.

i am ashamed/proud to admit i was genuinely 
heartbroken when i realized it was gone.
sometimes i even dream about it. 
mmm...

In college everyone ate at this one Mexican Restaurant (that's what we called it, as there was only one in the town) and 99% of people ate Arroz con Pollo. I refused to be one of the heard so I jumped around the menu. One day the place was empty and I was only with a few friends so I went for it. I can't believe how stupid I had been in squandering all those years of eatting Arroz con Pollo. Sooo stupid....

we are a tba family, but maybe after this post we will branch out. the cauli soup is so right.

I think I am the only person on earth that doesn't love a grilled cheese.

the whole fear of ordering something "new and exciting" only to regret it in the end is a major issue in my life. i get the exact same things every time i go out to eat. la puente? smothered burrito with a side of rice, no cheese. every single time. the waiter that used to work there knew what i was having before i even sat at the table. okaaay i need to go to zupas asap to try that perfect sounding grilled mountain of cheese. mountain? i don't know, just run with it. food excites me and makes me make weird analogies. next time we meet up, which better be asap. lets make it a zupas date.

when i was a kid, i had grilled cheese every wednesday night. i think it's about time to make that a traditon again.

P.S. "we could collect nuts."

"yes! and throw them at the Telmarines! SHUT UP."

Seriously Sooooooo Guuuuuuuud. My hubs works at Zupas, so I've tried many a sandwich there and that ultimate grilled cheese is ultimate yum in my face.

I never think to order a grilled cheese when I go out - now I wish we had a Zupa's around here somewhere so I could try this magical sandwich! Yum.
