Hold the mother-loving phone, what amazingness is this?! It’s a pear, raspberry, and vegan bacon grilled cheese sandwich from That Was Vegan? Dang, that sounds awesome times eleven! I want one of these in my mouth, stat!
What in the name of heaven and earth is THIS? It’s the Aurora Borealis, the vegan grilled cheese masterpiece by Compassion Over Killing’s Gwendolyn Mathers, and it won third place, Pro “Honey Pot,” in L.A.’s 10th Annual Grilled Cheese Invitational. I have several questions:
1. Gwendolyn Mathers, how’d you get to be so brilliant?
2. Why haven’t we hosted an all-vegan grilled cheese invitational yet? (This one I can answer: STUPID.)
3. Who wants to make this for me, like, yesterday?

Tomato Basil Soup with Focaccia Grilled Cheese Sandwiches from totally awesome blog, Vegan Yack Attack! I think dipping bread in soup is one of the finest activities in the world. Promote that bread to a focaccia grilled cheese? BLAMMO! You’re living the life! You know, THEE life.

Boy! What a hustle the American Girl dolls were. My doll’s clothes used to cost more than mine! I was driven to stealing money from my brother’s giant plastic Coca-cola bottle coin bank to buy those expensive doll dresses. I was a junkie! But then my brother caught me one day and it was so embarrassing. We had an American Girl intervention.
