Ciara and I went to Cosi today, we were accompanied by two handsome little fellas. Her kids, Rowan and Miles.
I hadn't been to Cosi since I was about 10 so I was really looking forward to it.
When we first walked in it smelled like popcorn and kids in groups wearing neon orange ymca shirts were RUNNING EVERYWHERE. Ciara calmly got us our pink bracelet passes and I followed her lead.
We had a lot of fun. Mostly it was fun watching Rowan discover things, but I did venture off pushing Miles in a stroller to discover some things of my own.
In the end I thought a few things about Cosi:
1. Really, really cool place, some areas reminded me of what it would feel like to actually be on the set of Charlie and the Chocolate Factory.
2. Couldn't stop thinking about all the germs migrating on every inch of everything. But I tried. Does this mean I have some sort of issue? Don't answer that.
3. I wish they had a Cosi that was art and music based too.
We are going back next week to check out the Titanic exhibit before it closes up shop. Can't wait!
Part Deux: Grilled Cheese
I will make this short.
When I got home I made myself a cheddar and baby swiss grilled cheese with tomato soup. I have a tip that all the world must know about how I make my grilled cheese.
I put honey on it. On both pieces of bread, the side that faces the cheese.
The sweetness brings out the flavor in the cheese and balances out the acidity in the soup so well it makes me want to kiss my fingertips and exclaim "MAMA MIA!"
Try it, you will never go back.
Part Three: Etc.
Ciara's awesome husband Collin designed a funny poster that got posted on this blog. If it's not the first one that shows up, it's the one about diapers. He said it took him 15 minutes. The guy is walking talent (not to mention funny).
