    Not so much a tradition, I just remember my mom making great macaroni and cheese, grilled cheese sandwiches in an iron skillet, and “Chile Verde con Queso,” a hot, yummy, gooey dip made from jack cheese and Ortega chopped green chiles.

    Yes. Grilled cheese(good ol’ white bread and American cheese)! Also my mother is Mexican and the only kind of enchilada’s she made were cheese. They are still my first choice when ordering enchiladas!

  4. We grew up with cheese curds, fresh Colby and “A meal without cheese is like a kiss without a squeeze”!

    I’m sure this is a “tradition” in every Wisconsin household, but I grew up in Texas and thought it was the weirdest thing when my dad would grab cheese out of the fridge and eat it plain as a snack. Now having lived in Wisconsin for eleven years when I get hungry for something I open up the fridge and grab some fresh cheddar or pepper jack or whatever other kind of cheese just happens to be in the fridge. Yum…

    Nothing really extraordinary to be mentioned. That’s why I need that book!

    I grew up with macaroni & cheese. I remember standing with my grandmother in the kitchen, watching, helping and learning how to make her special baked macaroni & cheese. I certainly plan on keeping that tradition going.

    fresh squeaky cheese curds for the summertime road trips

  10. It may sound simple but our summer treat growing up on a hot day in august when the tomatoes were riping in the garden was a fresh tomato cut into wedges and topped with cottage cheese and topped with some fresh ground pepper and kosher salt. So refreshing and yummy.
