Tuna Melt w/Muenster

Tuna Melt w/Muenster

The tuna melt is a sandwich (grilled cheese sandwich?) that some love while others simply gross out at the thought. The “haters” wonder why you would want warm tuna cooked with cheese melted on on top. I wonder why you wouldn’t want warm tuna cooked with cheese melted on top?! I mean seriously, a tuna melt […]

With it being my day off (last Thursday), I decided that I would once again head to Whole Foods’ remnant cheese section and see what bargains I could find.
