Tuesday Tune, vol 71 - Shredded Cheese

Do you know what I just discovered?  That you can purchase cheese already shredded. As in, no need to get the grater out of the cupboard in the which you forgot which cupboard it's in, then dig the cheese out of the fridge,  then cut off a chunk of cheese, then run the cheese down the shredder and remove a piece of skin while you're at it, then run all over the house looking for a band-aid with red grody blood splashing to and fro, then wash the cheese grater, then make sure the cheese is free of any bio-hazard, then put the cheese back in the baggy (to prevent mold), and finally put the cheese back in the fridge.

Do you have any idea what kind of time-saving, life-promoting concept this is for me?  As in, get the bag of cheese out of the fridge, then sprinkle the cheese on the Yahoo's eggs, then put the cheese back in the fridge.  Easy peasy.

What's next?  Bread that's already made? You don't say...

Can I just say that I love your blog posts. Let's be honest, this was a post about cheese, nothing earth shattering. But, you made me laugh and I needed that!

Lets not dwell on the fact that you're late to the party. Let's just rejoice that you made it at all.

this just in: buttery spread can be purchased in a tub.

Did you know that this same shredded cheese freezes very well? You can buy it in bulk from your local warehouse store and have cheese ready at your beacon call for months.

I do the freeze thing too, like Winder - buy it in bulk and it lasts forever :)
Seriously - did you close your eyes every time you walked past the cheese section at the grocery store? That's classic!!

And what's more, sometimes the shredded kind is less expensive than the stuff you have to shred yourself.

Folks, I did not know that you could freeze cheese! Oh my the things you teach me.

I guess I've always known about this shredded cheese, but failed to see the opportunity cost and/or benefit of buying the cheese already shredded. I mean, it's quick 'n stuff, but it costs more. And then there's that whole taste thing. I think freshly shredded tastes better. HOWEVER, I've discovered that cheese is cheese to the Yahoos and it doesn't cost all that much more.
