I love cheddar cheese! On tacos, chili, baked potato, nachos, spaghetti, scrambled eggs, tater tots, fries, cooked vegetables, sliced for cracker bites, on a sandwich, or just by itself. Yum!

Pizza – all that gooey delicious mozzarella has to top the list! Whatever else goes on top of the pizza doesn’t matter if there is no mozzarella!

Give me a really old cheddar; any day! I love all cheese but a really old cheddar on its own; or with a nice Granny Smith apple just makes me so happy 🙂 <3

21 Ruth McIver { 01.20.17 at 12:04 pm }

Who could just pick one!!! All of them but old fashioned PA farmers’ cheese was the best from my childhood.

27 Karen { 01.20.17 at 11:13 am }

Homemade Mac and Cheese with Cheddar, Colby Jack, or what ever I have on hand. Brie with fruit and crackers is also wonderful. Roast Beef and Swiss on rye. Meatball Parmesan with lots of melted mozzarella. I guess I just love all cheese but I think my favorite is plain ole grilled American cheese on white bread with tomato soup.

28 Paula S. { 01.20.17 at 11:12 am }

I love just about every kind of cheese, but sharp cheddar is my favorite! I have quite a few “favorite” cheesy dishes, but tops on my list are a gooey grilled cheese sandwich, macaroni & cheese, and a pizza dripping with extra cheese! Yum! 🙂

29 Karen Mo { 01.20.17 at 11:10 am }

I love cheddar cheese, I can eat it alone as a snack. My favorite dish is macaroni and cheese.

30 Darla Gunter { 01.20.17 at 11:03 am }

I love grilled cheese (American, cheddar, or mozzarella) with bacon and onion. Also macaroni and cheese made with cheddar, mozzarella, and Swiss. Oh… and string cheese, too.

Cheesy beer dip with warm baked pretzels…

39 Tiffany Burns { 01.20.17 at 10:25 am }

Havarti. Chedder. Smoked Gouda. Feta. Romano. Parmesan. Just give me cheese. I love them all…except Swiss. I don’t like Swiss. To rubbery. It’s a tactile thing.

40 Diane C Bush { 01.20.17 at 10:25 am }

Smoked Gouda on or in anything! But really awesome wrapped around an olive stuffed with jalapeno and garlic then wrapped in a slice of crescent roll, bakes until golden brown. mouth is watering!

If you notice a hole in the upper left-hand corner of your Farmers' Almanac, don't return it to the store! That hole isn't a defect; it's a part of history. Starting with the first edition of the Farmers' Almanac in 1818, readers used to nail holes into the corners to hang it up in their homes, barns, and outhouses (to provide both reading material and toilet paper). In 1919, the Almanac's publishers began pre-drilling holes in the corners to make it even easier for readers to keep all of that invaluable information (and paper) handy.
