Today, I went to a “Cheese Crawl” organized by DiBruno’s to celebrate their 75th anniversary.

Happy Monday! This week is a good week: it’s my last week of classes as a Sophomore. I can’t believe I’m almost halfway done with my college career. Time really does fly. In celebration, I’m not afraid to say that this dish is one of the best I have cooked since I started Stovetop Story.
