terrible timing

Oh the irony.  Oh the sadness.  Oh the cheese.

I recently came across an awesome website.  It's called Grilled Cheese Social.
I also recently became Lactose Intolerant.
And now you understand the tittle of this post.

At first it came on slowly, I'd feel just a tad gross after eating something super cheesy or cream based, but never anything bad enough to stop eating dairy all together.  It grew little by little over the past year, until BAM! July 19th 2011, our building had an Ice Cream Social and I went waaaaaaaay overboard.  So now I'm trying to live a cheese-less life, and just when I had it under control I found Grilled Cheese Social.

Here are some of the recipes I'm drooling over
 (It was way too hard to narrow it down so I picked out 5 of my favorites)

Bee Sting (remix)

   with one tablespoon of real salted butter, MIX)

So, do me a favor.  If you love cheese, and your body can break it down, go to this site, pick out your favorite, make yourself a cheesy treat, and tell me how it was!
I need to live vicariously!!!

  1. Oh I don't know that last one looks like it might be worth the risk - take two "lact-me-nots" and call me in the morning. That Badger thing is grotesque. And if it says "texas" anything, count me out. But I'd chance it with the "Bee Sting" too. I don't know what Sopressata is but it looks awesome mmmmmmmmmmmmm. Maybe we could split one?
