The fiance and I figured that planning a small wedding with a short engagement would be easy. It turns out that planning a wedding is a little stressful and very time-consuming, regardless of the size! Add to that our busy work schedules and our attempts to still, you know, have a life, and we've ended up with very little down time in the last few weeks. Which means little time to experiment in the kitchen! I've been focusing on fast meals lately. And comfort food, to help with stress!
Enter grilled cheese. I never particularly cared about grilled cheese one way or another as a kid, so I didn't miss it when I went vegan or anything like that, but we've bought Daiya fairly recently for pizzas (it's been a comfort food kind of month, I'm telling you! I'll write about the pizzas tomorrow, probably), and it's just expensive enough that I like to use it all before it molds. Voila, grilled cheese!
Your Vegan Mom recommended kimchi with grilled cheese as a graet comfort food. Since I've just made another batch of my nightshade-free kimchi, I had to give it a shot.
IT IS SO DELICIOUS.
My mother pointed out that grilled cheese and sauerkraut would probably be just as tasty, for those of you who don't feel like making/acquiring kimchi.
Thanks, Your Vegan Mom, for a little tip on reinventing comfort food! And readers, what's some of your favorite comfort food? With 12 days left till the wedding, I could use some new comfort food ideas!
