Meat-Free Monday: WOW, Daiya, WOW

Okay,  so I haven’t had a grilled cheese sandwich in over a year. Even before I became vegan, when I ate lots of cheese, I rarely had something melty enough for a property grilled cheese. 

And I thought I’d never have one again, now that I’m eating plant- based.

Then I saw daiya in a grocery store.  It’s not exactly a local store, but it’s in a city we visit occasionally anyway. 

Yesterday,  I bought a package (cheddar flavor), and tonight I made a grilled “cheese” sandwich, using vegan margarine and bread. 

I am in love!  I can have grilled “cheese” again! One of my ultimate childhood comfort foods! 

And I am pretty sure it was the best grilled cheese sandwich I ever had. 

Daiya isn’t perfect: I did not like it one bit when I tried to eat it cold, with crackers. But hot and melty? Yes, please!

Now, I surely won’t eat this stuff like I used to eat cheese: the stiff price tag and long drive to find it will prevent that. But I can have it when I really want it, and that makes me smile.
