01. Marking its third departure from the Red Border, TIME’s 10th anniversary cover of 9/11 displays a majestic Sliver Border (above)

“The front cover image of TIME’s special issue on the occasion of the 10th anniversary of the attacks of September 11, 2001 marks the third time in the magazine’s history that the trademarked red border was not used on the cover. TIME opted for a silver border surrounding the image created by Julian LaVerdiere and Paul Myoda, co-creators of the original Tribute in Light memorial in New York City. It shows a photo-illustration imagining the Tribute in Light as seen from space.” (mr magazine)

02. A Tribute to the Grilled Cheese Sandwich

“A grilled cheese sandwich is a staple food for children because it’s simple, quick, and cheap to make. Kids like simple food, and an American cheese slice on white bread is as simple as it gets. Melt it by frying it in butter, and that adds a dose of love to the dish. When we get older, the pleasure that sandwich brings stays with us, even as we add adult touches like gourmet bread, a variety of cheeses, and extras like vegetables and spices. A grilled cheese is both vegetarian and kosher, but if that’s not a concern it is certainly acceptable to add meat as well. Your basic American chain restaurant knows this, which is why the patty melt, a grilled cheese with a hamburger patty and sauteed onions on rye bread, became so popular.” (mentalfloss)
