Block Party in the Gourmet Ghetto this Sunday – A Serious Food and Wine Pairing

MMMM Grilled Cheese and Tomato Soup

OMG if this event doesn’t have my name written all over it I don’t know what does!  It combines some of my favorite things: grilled cheese sandwiches and wine.  The only thing missing is chocolate!
