April 12 - Nutrition, Food, and Health Topics: Grilled Sandwich, Licorice, World Food News, Photography and History

Grilled Cheese Sandwich Day 

A grilled cheese sandwich is assembled and then heated until the bread crisps and the cheese melts, sometimes combined with additional ingredients such as tomatoes, bacon, ham, peppers, and assorted fruits. Several different methods of heating the sandwich is used. Common cooking methods include cooking on a griddle, grilled, fried in a pan, broiled, or made in a panini grill or sandwich toaster.




National Licorice Day
#NationalLicoriceDay - Please note warning  https://wb.md/2IKy6CU

Warning: Licorice when consumed in high amounts, glycyrrhizin, a sweet compound found in licorice root, causes potassium levels to temporarily drop, which in turn may cause abnormal heart rhythms, high blood pressure, swelling, lethargy and, in extreme cases, even heart failure. These issues normally go away once consumption stops.
