So... a Cheese Frenchee looks like a close cousin of the Monte Cristo, an east-coast misinterpretation of the croque monseur. Throughout the '80s and '90s it was impossible to get a Monte Cristo that wasn't deep-fried but nowadays it's basically a batter-dipped grilled-ham-and-cheese sandwich made with french toast that's been grilled and they're fucking delicious.

Chislic is Shashlik without the yogurt sauce. Trust me. Tzatziki elevates the shit out of that.

I subsisted off of "Runzas" when I was a kid (I stopped eating with my family about age 12). I, too, was ashamed of this. Then I got a subscription to Gourmet Magazine and discovered that when you substitute the velveeta for gruyere it becomes something pompous and french the name of which I forget.

Chili and cinnamon rolls is pretty fucked up, tho.

That's okay. I spend 5 months a year in the place that perpetrated chicken and waffles on an unsuspecting populace. The pacific northwest, by contrast, really only has jojos, which apparently we can also blame on the midwest.
