Grilled Turkey and Mushroom Sandwich

Sometimes it really bums me out that dairy doesn’t agree with me. I mean, I don’t die if I eat it or break out in hives…and some things are definitely worth the pain, but overall it’s kind of a drag. I especially miss diary when Nate requests the classic lunch: grilled cheese and tomato soup. It’s really sad to eat dry toast or a plain ham sandwich with tomato soup. It just doesn’t warm your heart in the same way.
