The Kingdom of Joni

Once upon a time, in a land far, FAR, away, there was a princess named Joni. She was so cute and so well loved, that her servants, Tom and Amy, were willing to grant her many birthday wishes, both big and small.

One of these wishes is to have her Grandma's homemade mac'n'cheese - the very same mac'n'cheese that her brother, Prince Jackson, got on his birthday last month. But there is one small problem. In this land that is SO far away, there is a need for things to be very kosher. So most cheese is missing the ingredient rennet, which aids in the rich flavor of American cheddar. Servant Amy had tried making said mac'n'cheese before with local cheese, but Princess Joni didn't like it.

So today, Amy and Tom hiked all over Jerusalem for 3 HOURS in search of imported cheese, so Princess Joni could have this special birthday wish, tomorrow, on her birthday. AND, imported cheese costs a LOT of money. To get about 10 oz of good cheddar cheese, it cost Joni's very poor servants almost 30 bucks.

You better have the cheesiest, happiest, most delightful birthday ever, Princess Joni.
