grilled-cheese-sandwichOh, National Days, how we love thee. This one celebrates toasty bread and melted cheese: National Grilled Cheese Day is Friday, April 12, and Norma’s is giving it away.

From 6 a.m.-8 p.m., all dine-in customers can receive one free “classic” grilled-cheese sandwich, while supplies last.

Norma’s also is launching three new grilled cheeses, available for purchase:

·         Florentine grilled cheese with spinach, bacon, eggs and cream cheese
·         Santa Fe grilled cheese with green chilies and bacon
·         Chicken fried steak grilled cheese

You guys, if a sandwich has a big ol’ piece of battered and deep-fried beef on it, can it still be called a grilled cheese? How much meat may a cheese sandwich contain before it is defined by that meat? Maybe we have it all wrong, naming sandwiches after meats. Melted cheese does adhere; is it holding the universe together? Existential sandwich questions. Thanks for blowing my mind, Norma’s.
