The poets have been mysteriously silent on the subject of cheese.
– G.K. Chesterton

There is nothing better than to be going through a dry spell in my writing, then see a quote like this one! Thank you, G.K. Chesterton, for saying that – I am breaking the silence today! I wrote about my love for cheese.  What an awesome writing prompt!

Poetry is just the evidence of life. If your life is burning well, poetry is just the ash. – Leonard Cohen

Is it a poem that could have remained unwritten? Well, yes it is, but I chose to write it anyway. I have been to Wisconsin and at times I’m tempted to make another trip back for no other reason than pick up the best cheese in America!TL COLUMBO ABOUT CHEESE

If you ever get to Nelson cheese shop in Nelson, Wisconsin, I promise you will not regret visiting there. They have a variety of cheeses and once you taste them you will not want to buy cheese at your local market ever again.

These days I use cheese sparingly. I like to add a little to my salads or chili or soup. Melted cheese melts my heart! Most dishes are not complete without a little cheese for garnish.

A truly happy person is one who can enjoy the scenery while on a detour.

Since 1994 when I was diagnosed with Type 2 Diabetes, I have been more selective about the cheese I use. For example, I can no longer eat Velveeta due to the sodium content.

I do believe that a diet should be inclusive of all food groups, so I use cheese more sparingly than I used to, but have not cut it out of my diet – nor would I.

I need no reason to melt cheese. – Linda Palmer

I measure the portion, I count the calories, I count the carbohydrates, I melt the cheese! It’s the little things – it really is.

Let me know what you think!!!
