The bread was just squishy sandwich bread, probably purchased at the day old bread store. Transformed by heat and a thin layer of mayonaisse, perfectly golden brown and steaming, I could see the unnaturally yellow cheese oozing out from between the layers of toasted bread.

The first bite unleashed a string of cheese that led from my chin back to the plate, the second bite added dribbles of the Campbell's Tomato Soup into which I'd dipped the sandwich. The drizzling rain continued outside, but my heart and belly were warmed by this comfort food.

The prompt: Conjure. Writing short posts is an excellent way to flex your word choice muscles. Which word is the most clear? Poignant? Direct? This week I want you to conjure something. An object, a person, a feeling, a color, a season- whatever you like. But don’t tell me what it is, conjure it.

  1. Well, at least the classic “what’s for dinner?” question has now been answered for today. Thank you. 😉

    1. That’s exactly what it was last night, and why it was so fresh in my mind! Rained yesterday afternoon, so that was dinner! 🙂

  2. There is no greater comfort to me than grilled cheese & tomato soup.

    It’s just me & the kids for the next few days . . . I think I know dinner at least one night 🙂

  3. My kids had grilled cheese sandwiches for lunch – but I loathe mayonnaise so it’s butter at our house!

    1. Hubs makes his with butter. My mom always used mayo, so it’s what I use too! It will FOREVER be a battle in our house! We don’t make grilled cheese sandwiches for each other, because we don’t like each other’s styles! LOL
