Way back in 2013, we tested the kids for food allergies, and they came up with an intolerance for dairy. It wasn’t a lactose thing, because certain preparations didn’t seem to affect them (cooked butter, raw milk). But it meant they were mostly shut out of the world of cheese, ice cream, and butter, except for pale imitations.

This year we re-tested them, and they had both grown out of their intolerance! We started stocking cheese and butter again, and to celebrate we took them to the cheesiest food cart in Portland: the Grilled Cheese Grill. Their signature sandwich is the Cheesus: it’s a burger, but each part of the bun is a full grilled-cheese sandwich. That was too much for us, so we ordered three Baby Cheesuses, and sat in the school bus to eat. A giant hail storm blew through, pounding the roof of the bus, creating a truly memorable experience.
