This post might seem silly, but it is a habit for this home.
I don't buy pre-shredded cheeses.
Not because it contains tons of icky ingredients,
but because it is cheaper to buy blocks of cheese
and because cheese that is NOT pre-shredded tastes so much better.
My days are busy and filled with lots of goodness,
so I don't want to spend oodles of time shredding my blocks of cheese
every time I need it for a meal.
So, I pre-shred my cheese all at once.
With this method,
I get pretty, tasty, and meltable cheese without the added ingredients.
By the way, have you noticed how badly
pre-shredded cheese melts?
Who wants that?!?
This is how it goes down in my house...
I buy all the cheese I need,
grab my shredder (or, food processor), cutting board,
and a knife (so I can cut the block into smaller, more manageable chunks)
and start shredding.
In no time, I have lovely cheese stored in a container and ready to use!
