Roasted Asparagus Grilled Cheese

I took public transit and didn’t die!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Taking the bus was a thrill! I felt like an independent city girl or a common plebian or something.

What misconceptions I had about this mode of transportation!

First, I thought they were unsafe. IΒ had this notion that busses just ~flip~ over on the regular. This is false, apparently. Second, I thought they were dirty. It was clean AND I had a personal vent and reading light. Cute! Finally, I thought there were just too many variables for my feeble mind to comprehend. How do I pay? How do we file in? Are there assigned seats? What if the bus driver kidnaps me and takes me to his lair?

The bus driver did have to show me how to insert the coins, so once he figured out I was an idiot he decided to let me go.

    1. I love public transit. Tomorrow I’m taking the commuter bus from my small town into Ottawa (where I used to live) and I get to use city transit to bus around and visit people. I’m so excited.

    2. That sandwich looks awesome. It’s a shame asparagus is still so darn expensive right now. As are avocados and gorgonzola.
