My life is complete. I finally got to try The Grilled Cheese Truck! After following them on Twitter, stalking their Twitpics and visiting the website often, I now understand what all the melt is about.
We -all 5 of us- get to The Brig at 8pm sharp per the schedule online. No truck to be seen. That's it, I refresh my Twitter and see what the deal is. The GCT tweets that they are running a tad bit late... But to make the lateness excusable, they're giving away fluffer-nutters to the first 15 people in line who say, "Cheese." The cheese-mobile rolls into the parking lot and we manage to get behind 3 people; we're all guaranteed fluffer-nutters! As the GCT crew take some time to setup, we contemplate our orders. 2 sandwiches? 1 sandwich, 1 side? 1 sandwich, 2 sides? Anxious to try the food already, our appetites are growing by the second. We reminisce about grilled cheese memories, discuss mac 'n cheese preferences, learn what a fluffer-nutter actually is and drool over the sound of tater tots. To make this easy, I will summarize our tall order.
Patti: Caprese Melt, Mac 'n Cheese, Tater Tots, Fluffer-Nutter
Ana: "Plain & Simple" Cheddar + Bacon, Tater Tots, Fluffer-Nutter
Chad: Cheesy Mac 'n Rib, Tater Tots, Fluffer-Nutter
Gavin: Cheesy Mac 'n Rib, "Plain & Simple" American, Tater Tots, Tomato Soup, Fluffer-Nutter
Mike: Cheesy Mac 'n Rib, "Plain & Simple" Cheddar, Mac 'n Cheese, Tomato Soup, Fluffer-Nutter
When all 12 melts and accompanying sides arrive, we are joyous! ...And here I am trying my best to capture visuals [aka pictures] before the sandwiches vanish. I'll admit, the pictures could be much much better; to my disadvantage the lighting wasn't favorable and everyone's hunger-mode got the best of the food before my Canon did. It's alright though, we all enjoyed our sammies and are on a mission to try more trucks together :)

Mac 'n Cheese - it was cheesy and creamy with a kick of spice, we couldn't figure out what it was...
Topping of my tots with some ketchup! Thanks!
