Americans and Cheese

Not too long ago, I had a British friend point out that Americans put cheese on everything. My first thought was, “We don’t put cheese on everything!” Then I realized that he was probably including the cheese “stuff” that we eat, otherwise known as processed cheese. Well, IF that counts as cheese, (and that’s a big “if”), I guess we DO eat a lot of cheese. We eat it on our pizza, nachos, sandwiches, pasta, hamburgers, and the list goes on. If I had to guess, I’d say that many Americans eat cheese in one form or another every single day. Oops! I guess he was right. We do eat cheese on almost everything. However, I’m glad that he didn’t ask me WHY we eat cheese on everything. I’m not sure that I could answer that question!
