Grilled cheese sandwiches from THE ART FORGER by B.A. Shapiro

Grilled cheeses/cherry tomatoes/basil sandwiches

“We’re in the kitchen, and he’s making grilled cheese and tomato sandwiches, which  I'm thinking are going to be about as close to my two-American-cheese singles-on-white-bread as his macaroni and cheese was to my Kraft special. He slides his creation onto my plate: multiple cheeses with cherry tomatoes and fresh basil oozing of slabs of homemade, multigrain bread.” THE ART FORGER by B.A. Shapiro (First paperback edition-May 2013, p. 215)
