A funny story, this is how much i like very sharp cheddar cheese, when I was 6 and visiting my dad, this was 30 years ago, I snuck up in the middle of the night, apparently he loved hte xtra sharp cheese as much as I do!!ANyway tiptoed to the fridge found the block of cheese and ate the whole thing, had the owrse stomach I ever had after that, sevrd me right!! LOL, most people this would have stopped them up for a week, not me, the opposite. As i got older my childhood doc when i was a teen daid you got to give up the cheese honey its killing you, ( iwas having horrible migraines and he said the cheese was part of it. So reluctantly I have slowed quite a bit down the cheese, sigh!! Hope all has a good Sunday..Love..Sheryl
