Many of us want to find love; I just want to find a piece of cheese. O' Cheese, Cheese, wherefore art thou, Cheese! All you need is cheese, right? Perhaps, it would be nice to share my cheese-eating experiences with a special someone. I haven’t yet found my cheese man, but I’m on the hunt. Maybe I’ll make a trip to the “Swiss Cheese Capital of America”, Monroe, Wisconsin, and find myself a fellow cheese aficionado. For now, I’ll just enjoy my quiet, candlelit, intimate evenings alone with a block of cheese, a rustic bread loaf, and a glass of wine.
Cheesophiles of America, rejoice! This one’s for you! I dedicate today, National Cheese Day, in your honor. Go out, buy yourselves a block of cheese, and try these recipes! Just a word of warning for you cheesophiles -- the pictures below are very arousing and may cause a cheesgasm! Enjoy a mouthful of your favorite aged cheeses! Remember, the smellier the cheese (like stinky feet), the tastier!
A Summer Cheese Plate -- On the menu tonight is Cheese! Pick a cheese, any cheese. We have parmigiano reggiano, chevre, manchego, and baby mozzarella! Serve with almonds, fresh grapes or figs, crostinis, crackers, and, of course, your finest bottle of wine! Bon appétit!
Chicken Parmesan Wraps -- At first, I was skeptical. You can’t take my hoagie roll away from me! Then, I decided to give these wraps a try. I wholeheartedly surrendered. Oh.My.Cheesus. These are brilliant! The egg roll wrappers add that perfect crunch. Get in my belly!
Creamy Caprese Pasta -- Are you having the work week blues? Well, I have just the recipe to lift your spirits! “Chewy noodles swim in a creamy tomato sauce. Chunks of mozzarella hide in between pops of grape tomatoes and ribbons of basil.” All in melted unison. Amen.
Cheesy Panini -- For the love of panini sandwiches! As I stare at this gastronomical brie and blue cheese sandwich, I can’t help but well up with tears of joy. Suddenly, my eye catches a piece of bacon tucked underneath the melted glob of cheese... Now, I’m completely hysterical!
Caramelized Onion Prosciutto Pizza -- Calories: “Tiny creatures that live in your closet and sew your clothes a little bit tighter ever night.” I knew it! So, I guess it really doesn’t matter what you eat. Pizza for dinner every night! The caramelized onions, prosciutto, and mozzarella/parmesan cheeses create the ultimate sweet, salty, and creamy bite!
Calories, come out, come out, wherever you are! I’ll find you, my pretty, and your little friends too! Never mess with a hysterical, hunger-stricken woman!
