Taste Buds are Back! / by Megan Tomino

The worst parts of being sick are losing your appetite, sense of taste and smell, and ability to hold down food. So naturally, once the sickness passes I am filled with an overwhelming urge to eat E V E R Y T H I N G.

This time around, the first thing I craved was taco rice from izakaya naru, but I was in no condition to leave the house so I settled for a classic combo: grilled cheese and tomato basil soup.

The insane amount of butter I used plus the really sharp cheddar put me right back into bed with a stomach ache. Totally worth it! Sort of.
