Obsession With a Sandwich


It’s no fun being sick…actually it sucks pretty bad.

My tastebuds are dulled so everything tastes like soap, and I have hardly enough appetite to eat with gusto, though of course I still go through the motions and hence never manage to lose weight, unlike some skinny-enough-already people who drop 5kg each time they cough or sneeze!

My lack of appetite and non-desire to live it up with cigarettes or booze left me feeling pretty darn souless – like being kissed by a Dementor – so I decided to indulge in some comfort food…Grilled Cheese Sandwiches.

Nothing makes me feel better (and according to some old wives, makes a cough worse) than a grilled cheese sandwich…’cept maybe two grilled cheese sandwiches.

Cheese of choice: Comte from the Franche-Comte region in France – mine was from Carrefour though…hehehe. It’s one of my favourite cheeses because it has a slightly sweet nuttiness that intensifies once the cheese is grilled, so that it’s savoury and sweet, chewy and crunchy all at the same time.

I used turkey breast and sun-dried tomatoes for filling and added some Parmiggiano for saltiness. Tangy bits of tomato were a nice accompaniment to the cheese.

Turkey breast with sun-dried tomatoes and Comte & Parmesan Cheese grilled on a flat pan. Smeared oil from the tomatoes on the outside to get a bit more flavour into the crispy crust.

Who can resist taking a bite out of that?

Food, food, food. Apart from love, it's the other thing that makes the world go round. When I'm sad it's a comfort, when I'm happy it's a celebration and when I'm not hungry, it's just greediness. But hey! Why not? Life is short too pass up a good meal.
