I could never imagine a world without yummy, delicious, flavorful cheese. Think about it - a sandwich would be just bread and meat, pizza only sauce and crust, mac and cheese just, well, macaroni.
I could go on and on. I would never want to live in a world so dull, so boring…
I mean, there’s even a holiday celebrating cheese - #NationalCheeseLoversDay! In honor of this day dedicated to cheese, I thought I’d share some of my favorite holidays and ways I celebrate with cheese.
1. Valentine’s Day
Does that special someone in your life love cheese more than chocolate? What better way to surprise them then with this cheese lover’s valentine box.
2. St. Patrick’s Day
You may think of corned beef and cabbage, potatoes, or a pint, but what about a side of Ah Ha Mac and Cheese? Pro hint: You can even add spinach puree to make it green – perfect for this holiday!
3. Summer BBQ’s
What makes Memorial Day, 4th of July, Labor Day weekend and any other weekend in between? You guessed it – cheeseburgers! Fire up those grills and try this Black Bean and Chipotle Cheddar Burger.
