Particularly, the "GRILLED CHEESE BEGINS SEPT 5" .
Several years ago, this church started offering grilled cheese sandwiches on Thursdays during the high school lunch periods. It started out as something for the few kids who needed a break from the high school scene but maybe didn't have money or a car for a decent off-campus lunch. A woman at the church thought it might be a nice bit of outreach since the church was so close to the school, so she volunteered to make a few grilled cheese sandwiches once a week.
Word spread and now EVERY kid and staff member know of the deliciousness. Each of our kids has partook during the high school years and each has described the yum of church grilled cheese. It's to the point now where the church coordinates teams of volunteers to make and serve during designated lunch periods. There is still no charge for the food - they also offer cookies and such, I'm told - but kids often donate what they can. It's open to juniors and seniors because underclassmen aren't allowed to leave campus for lunch, but c'mon, we've all been high school underclassmen who've "ditched" at lunch.
There's no proselytizing on grilled cheese Thursdays. Sure, kids can ask questions about the church and programs, but it's really just about outreach. I think that's a nice thing.
With school being back in session, no doubt some students were wondering, "Where's the cheese?"
Well, there ya go. Nice of them to post it on their sign.
In related news, as part of my vegetarian adventures, I made an attempt to create some veggie quesadillas as yummy as the ones I had at Fuzzy's a few weeks ago.
I was pretty happy with how they turned out, but they needed more veggies. They're not quite up to Fuzzy standards, but next time!
Now, to find a good wine pairing...
