Simple Sundays | Feeling Cheesy: Tillamook Sandwich Week
This weekend’s Simple Sundays comes to you a day early because I thought you might want to know about a tasty event in San Francisco that starts today.
I won’t even bother asking if you like cheese because I have yet to encounter a single soul who doesn’t have a profound love for cheese. Most people I know confide that they can live on cheese and bread alone. I know those are some of my own weaknesses. So, this week, if you happen to be in the Bay Area, you are in for a treat.
To help celebrate two of the tastiest things – sandwiches & cheese, Tillamook and their Loaf Love Tour (www.LoafLoveTour.com) has partnered with five notable Bay Area restaurants – each offering their take on specialty melts, sandwiches (and even burgers!) featuring award-winning Tillamook Cheese. ‘Tillamook Sandwich Week’ runs from June 11th – 18th, so grab a map & plot out this week’s sandwich crawl…
