There’s a centuries old New Year tradition in our family.
For generations, Ouimet’s have celebrated the wee hours of the new year with a grilled cheese and tomato sandwich.
This year, like every other, I followed the family tradition to the letter, as handed down from Ouimet to Ouimet
In case you’re having trouble reading the scanned document:
- slice white bread, thick
- slice tomato, thin
- slice Canadian cheddar, medium
- place tomato slices on bread
- cover with sliced cheese
- grind black pepper, coarse
- grill on open fire until cheese melts
- eat and celebrate the New Year
Maybe it was just the way the light played on the cheddar, maybe my eyes were tired, I really can’t explain it. Imagine my surprise when I sat down to eat my New Year sandwich when I looked down at the plate.
Judge for yourself.
Holy Springfield ! Some kind of miracle ! What a way to start 2008 !
I probably should try to sell it on eBay.
