Army Man Snack

by Hannah Holt »


I was grocery shopping the other day…

…and it dawned on me, Do you know what Colby-Jack cheese looks like? It looks like army fatigues.

I don’t normally buy sliced cheese (because how hard is it to slice cheese, really?), but I was in a lazy mood. So I bought a package of pre-sliced Cobly-Jack cheese.

And then I was feeling so rested from not slicing all that cheese that I cut it up into an army dude (just add grapes).

Perhaps, I should have been working on a freelance project, or vacuuming, or making dinner. But sometimes it’s just more fun to cut cheese into people.

For those of you in the States, Happy Memorial Day!

    Your cemetery has a playground? Ubber-cool! And I love the army man.

    This is hilarious! Amazing how much time pre-sliced cheese can save you. I am also impressed that it turned out to be a Memorial day tribute. You are a multi-tasker!

    Really? Is that a playground at the cemetery? I wouldn’t have seen it, but for Gramma Holt’s comment! Love you Cheese-man, and the fact that you can still let your brain cells romp while G-shopping with 4 kids! Who are very lucky, BTW!
