Just to clear things up.....

I feel like maybe I've given you the wrong impression.  It seems that everyone thinks I'm some sort of health nut or something.  I just want you to know that sometimes you just have to let loose [and eat something naughty]. 

The only meal that gets cheers around here is grilled cheese sandwiches with tomato soup.  Literally, cheers. 

I happened to have this sitting in my refrigerator - it was taunting me. 

Yes, I am aware that the description reads, "pasteurized prepared cheese product".  Recently, Gwyneth Paltrow remarked that she's rather smoke crack than eat cheese out of a can.  A little melodramatic much?  I don't eat Velveeta too often, but if you've never had a grilled cheese made with Velveeta, you're really missing out. 

Just look at all of that prime "melti-ness".  So good. 

And, since I wasn't sure if what I served my family was really dairy, we enjoyed this for dessert!  Not really, I was just hungry for chocolate pudding.
