As a firm believer that EVERYTHING is a reason to celebrate, I thought I would take a second to pay homage to one of my favorites, the Grilled Cheese Sandwich. How can you go wrong? You can dress it up, dress it down. Dip it, lick it and nibble it. Make it plain (just cheese and some bread, please!) or make it fancy by adding additional toppings (what other food gives you this many options?) I haven't met a person who doesn't have fond memories of a gooey grilled cheese sandwich and a side of tomato soup.
One thing that makes me slightly uncomfortable when attending events is when the 'mystery food' is laid out or brought around to the guests without a card indicating what the ingredients are or what the dish is called. When it comes to planning events, if I'm in charge of the menu, I like to stick to the basics and challenge my creativity by coming up with a unique way to serve everyone's favorites.
