I have no shame in sharing that I need cheese in my life. Not only is cheese #6 on my “Can’t Live Without” list, it’s what gets me excited about my salad at lunch, it helps me not gag on my scrambled egg whites at breakfast, and it pretty much turns anything else into a party.
That’s no longer a tortilla chip, it’s nachos.
My bread just turned into pizza!
This hunk of broccoli that I dipped in fondue is now cheesy broccoli.
Noodles? Nope, it’s mac ‘n cheese.
Do I need to go on? You’re with me, right? Thought so…
The special thing about these wafers is that they tend toward being a southern thing/tradition. So, if you’re feeling, oh…I don’t know…Dukes of Hazzard-ish? give it a go. In fact, I bet Bo Duke is munching on one right now. (Was he your favorite? He was my favorite.)
It is no mistake that these are of an orange complexion. It is Halloween, almost, isn’t it? Be bold and take cheese wafers to the office Halloween party. Or dress up as Bo Duke and…well, be Hazardous.
Or if you are going to a fancy lady party, throw some thyme, sage, or chives in there and sip on some fancy lady tea while you nibble on your fancy lady wafer.
