The Daily Post asks: Describe the perfect sandwich.

First off, $5,000 for sandwich?! I don’t know if I could eat something that was so expensive. Can I just get a Subway sandwich for $5 and use the rest for my student loans?

My perfect sandwich would be a grilled cheese. Not just a plain old cheddar cheese grilled cheese, though. It would look like this:

It’s made with sourdough bread, prosciutto, basil, asiago or mozzarella (or maybe both), crushed red pepper, and tomatoes.

The Daily Post asks: Name a food you used to like – what changed?

After several long hours in the ER, they concluded that it was just an allergic reaction to the fish. I spent the next week on the couch covered in calamine lotion and battling a fever. It was quite the experience.

Needless to say, as much as I once loved salmon, I consider it my enemy now.
