Can someone else tell Rashan this combination is nasty? Because he won't listen to me. Grilled cheese and oatmeal? It's not like you eat bland oatmeal or swirl in some sriracha. It's a lunch entree (which I find disgusting-- NOT a fan of grilled cheese since it reminds me of cheese toast and I HATE CHEESE TOAST AND KRAFT SINGLES-- another Jameil family food legend...) and a sweet breakfast food. Not okay. The two should not mingle. When I said it was gross, he said, "WHY ARE YOU ADVENTUROUS ABOUT FOOD UNLESS I'M EATING IT???" Is that a real question? Can you enlighten me as to what is adventurous about OATMEAL (which I like) and grilled cheese (WHICH 3-YEAR-OLDS LIKE...)? I like grilled HAM & cheese but cheese and bread a sandwich do not make. So tell him he's nasty in the comments after you hear this story.
One day before school, my mom, as usual was making us breakfast. (She used to be a stay at home mom... but I don't remember if she was at this point.) Today, she decided it would be cheese toast. I had grown increasingly to loathe cheese toast. It was toast with a Kraft single on top MICROWAVED. UGH. I feel slightly nauseous just thinking about it.
My sister, the much pickier eater, but a pleaser, was happily eating and I refused. My mom said, "You better eat that." I said, "I don't want to. If I eat it I'm gonna throw up." I think I was about 9. She said, "Eat it anyway." I was obedient. (Except with beets.) I ate it. Then I threw up. TOLD YOU. I'm a woman (or child) of my word, son. She doesn't remember this story but my sister and I retold it over Christmas. MERRY CHRISTMAS, MOM. Now eat your cheese toast. I still don't eat cheese toast. And I still don't eat Kraft singles. I used to eat them on burgers but now I'll pass on the plastic cheese. I'd rather eat it plain. (Side note: I never willingly ate a cheese-less burger before hitting 22 and still find it to be an abomination.)
