A cheesy good time

Saturday was spent partaking in a very un-Chinese event.

We got our cheese on at the first annual Shanghai Grilled Cheese Cook-off. Cheese is not a staple of the diet here, making it a rather expensive ingredient. As a self proclaimed cheese-aholic, I was rather dismayed to realize I had gone a solid six months without a grilled cheese. Thankfully, I overcompensated this weekend.

This Korean Chicken and Cheese sandwich was my favorite in the Asian category

 And they all paired nicely with some hard cider on an insanely hot day

Walking home, I remarked that events like this make me almost forget that we are living in Shanghai. I was promptly hit by a bicycle and screamed at in Chinese. Thanks for the reminder.
