So we did not go to E.A.T. merely to smuggle in a jar of pickles. Our true reason for being here is to eat Ina Garten's favorite CHEESY dish, the grilled cheese sandwich with Tuscan peasant soup.
Though after the pickles, we can't seem to focus on much else.
|This Sandwich Looks Decidedly Devoid of Cheese from Certain Angles|
The Tuscan peasant soup, which was not technically on Best Thing I Ever Ate but which Ina recommended combining with the grilled cheese, is downright to die for. It overcomes the obstacle of being a very hot dish being consumed on a very hot day and makes us bask in all of its tomato, bready chunkiness.

|And the Mustard Dressing on the Salad is Enough to Kill You|
|Picture These As Fraternal Twins|
If only the sandwich always came with a side of pickles.
