National Grilled Cheese Month Starts Today!

The folks over at Clementine take their grilled cheese sandwiches very seriously -- so seriously, in fact, that they are celebrating National Grilled Cheese Month (yes, it's a real holiday, not an April Fool's joke) by allowing their customers to vote in a month-long electoral process for the cheese sandwich they most want to eat. Sign me up for the Parmesan party!

Clementine's been commemorating Grilled Cheese Month for a few years now (we covered it with much celebration last year). You can even download a very complete voting ballot from their website, which features cheesy candidates like a french-onion and brisket, fontina and mushroom, and white cheddar with roasted turkey -- and those are only this week's candidates! You can also start to look forward to Philly cheesesteaks, a bratwurst reuben with gruyere, and roasted asparagus with ricotta. And yes, write-in votes are allowed, and as the Grilled Cheese Voter's Bill of Rights states, "you have the right to eat grilled cheese as often as you want, free from intimidation by your doctor or vegans."
