Its not politics, religion, corporate greed, or any of the things that get blamed...all that stuff is a smoke screen to hide the real issues, bread & cheese.

Almost every culture has a bread and/or cheese.... French bread, Italian bread, Russia? I think 'bread' might be Russian for Russia... Gorgonzola, Brie, and on and on....

America has pasteurized processed cheese product slices wrapped in plastic and pre sliced plastic baggy generic bread.
Bread should be in brown paper and never sliced before use..likewise cheese should never ever be sliced, crumbled, or cut before use and it should be wrapped in wax paper.... Pre-slicing either drys them out causing flavor loss..and they both need to breathe, plastic is a major no-no...and while I'm at it...you know the worst place/way to ' store' cheese? The fridge, yet that's where we put it...

Then to top it all of what do we do with the died out suffocated product?...We cook it, in butter, trying to add flavor and moisture........ain't no wonder we are so screwed up.

How far we've fallen from Andrew Jackson's 1,400 lb wheel of cheese in the White House.

We buy our cheese in blocks, and cut it ourselves. Same with our bread.

Life's too short.

Jeez PB, did someone serve you a bad grilled cheese or something? Razz

Seriously though, I know where you are coming from. Bread, cheese and beer have always been the cornerstones of not only nutrition, but also the communities that our ancestors came from. These were the skills that kept you and your family alive and well fed. I'm glad to say that I have tried my hand at 2 of the 3 (bread and beer) and am thinking the 3rd will be something for when we move to the country full-time and the wife gets her goats or gurnsey or whichever she is planning on.

Nay Gandalf.. Nay.

For the market we wrap Chedder in plastic preventing it from breathing. We kill the cheese..

To make it even worse we usually cut the cheese (ohhhh I can barely stand not making a crack) before we wrap it..

It ruins it..


Every so often I get a yearning for bread,fruit, and cheese.. When home I know how to fix it, when out it's hit and miss. I settled last night for some Focaccia with what should have been a delightful Gorgonzola Dolce.. but no. They had both been smothered in plastic, I knew better but once again I hoped "This time it will be ok" ... all i can really say is at least they weren't pre-sliced.......

I try not to eat dairy or bread. Dairy causes me intestinal distress and bread makes me fat.

Call me unamerican. Laughing

I read the posts very carefully and I have identified the problem. No one has mentioned wine. If you include a nice bottle of wine with the cheese and bread that will solve all of your ills.

HUh?????

I thought that was as obvious as saying people need air to breath.. Thats why it was unstated.. Laughing Laughing Laughing Laughing Laughing Laughing

Actually I don't do wine in the routine.. something about alcoholic beverage and 80,000lb moving objects make peolpe a little upset. Go figure.. Very Happy Very Happy

Seriously.. although the rules say you can drink up to 4 hrs before operating a CMV as long as your bac is below .08? .06? I will not risk it..
I've heard to many horror storys of guys getting busted for DUI while climbing across the seat headed to the bunk, having accidents the next day (doesn't matter if the test show you were stone sober, let a jury hear a witness say they saw you drinking a glass..), and just a whole host of nasty stuff... I usually abstain except on vacation, just to risky.

The simple things in life are so delicious.

If I know him at all he'll probably skip right over the topic due to its title... but then again, I just know the character he presents himself as online so he may read all the threads or few if any threads...

I'm very fortunate here in the Atomic City that I have a place called J & M's Butcher shop where I can get a big ole chunk of cheddar cut right off the wheel and wrapped in wax paper. One of the ladies on our department cooks homemade bread for me. Voila! Heaven on Earth! Laughing
