Velveeta was only the beginning…

on March 31, 2008

I grew up in a small town in Alaska….when we first moved to Wasilla, the only store was Teelands and they did have Velveeta, as well as jerky (two kinds) and lots of canned food, but not much else.  I didn’t have access to gourmet cheese and food until much later…. So I just want to take a moment to be thankful for Whole Foods and The Milk Pail and Cowgirl Creamery. Good food is serious business, and without it, things can get pretty intense…

Truman (standing in front of a huge Velveeta display): Could this be all the cheese?

Mrs. Dewey: Well how much do you want?

Truman: I mean quality dear, not quantity..

Mrs. Dewey: Oh you mean other types of cheese….Goodness no, not here… What will you and Mrs. Capote do for your Christmas supper?

Truman: If this is the only cheese I find, Mrs. Capote and I might try cyanide.
