Day 95: Thankful Today for Grilled Cheese Sandwiches
Airport food! It can be good if you are in a large airport. But these small ones don't always have the best choices. I studied the menu of oil-laden fried foods that filled it and I was stuck on what to eat. I finally landed on a fried choice that brought back memories, of course, not in the way it was being served at the airport. But in another context it would be comfort food. Considering my plane was delayed several times, comfort is what I needed. So I ordered the grilled cheese sandwich, wishing it came with the creamy tomato soup my Mother always served with it when I was a child. It didn't. But each cheesy bite still helped me reminisce and find comfort.
