                                       4,000 years ago CHEESE was born. There are over 550 cheeses
                              from 55 countries. Every  country makes their cheeses. Most of the cheese is
                             made with cows milk blended with milk fats, but other milk from sheep, goats,
                             buffalo, reindeer, camels and yaks is used in making cheese
                                     There are many varieties of cheese. One can get semi soft, soft,
                              hard, semi hard, firm, medium firm etc., etc.You can buy it in brick form,
                              sliced, shredded, crumbly, these are only a few of the types that are available.
                               Shoppers have many choices to decide on. To name a few,
                             American, Cheddar, Swiss, Jack, Feta, Blue, Cream Cheese, Parmesan,
                             Mozzarella, Asiago,....There are Vegetarian  and low-fat cheeses  too.

                                          I love cheese. A grilled Pepper Jack Cheese sandwich with a nice
                             bowl of tomato soup.....or a ham and Swiss sandwich.....Yum!
                                          Following are a few low-fat cheeses and what they are
                             best paired with;

                                          A Greek Salad--try a reduced fat Crumbled Feta Cheese
                                          A sandwich-- reduced fat Pepper Jack cheese
                                          A cheese that melts, ideal for pizza, pasta and lasagna
                                                              try--Part Skim Mozzarella Ball
                                          A snacking cheese-----reduced fat Dubliner Cheese, a dead
                                                   ringer for Cheddar, but fewer calories and less fat.

                            That is all for today friends, this is Jenny
