American cheese

Today I found Joni biting into a piece of American cheese.  We have been fascinated by cheese since coming back to the states because it has so much flavor.  In Israel, "cheddar" is very light in color and mild in flavor because they leave an important ingredient out in order to keep it kosher (or at least that's the explanation I heard once upon a time).  

After taking a big bite, and studying the appearance of it for a moment, she asked, "Mom, why is the cheese so dark?  Do they sunburn it to get it that way?"

Wow Amy! What an adventure. I am glad you are back, safe and sound. Let me know when you will be in good ol' PC. We can all get together. We all have missed you and enjoyed watching your journey.

I am so glad you're home! I would love to see you some time before you're off again. Seriously...you're leaving so soon. Well, at least you'll be on the same land mass. I thought Cafe Rio would be on the top of your list of things to do. Love ya!

Hilarious!

How long will you be in Utah? Long enough that we could pull together a BBC fun fest? I'd love to actually meet you!

Grown ups can bite hunks out of cheese too, right? We too can't believe how amazing cheese is.
