But today's great experiment was, instead of frying a grilled cheese sandwich (as almost everyone does): I put it under the broiler instead, next to my wife's chicken breasts. Not only was it a bit lighter tasting (in spite of still being cooked with butter), but it was more a consistent melting of the cheese. I suppose that I could use less butter next time, since the butter is only flavoring in this cooking mode, not lubrication (or at least, not much lubrication).

Experiments in Cooking
It has been a very eclectic day. Part of was spent manufacturing orders for ScopeRoller; part of it was spent preparing for my presentation about non-legal sources for lawyers for this event in Philadelphia next month; part of it was spent reading 1860s and 1870s California newspapers, where editorials explained the reasons for repeal of the 1863-4 concealed carry ban: questionable constitutionality, and it reduced murder at the expense of increasing robbery.
