I have for you today a delicious recipe for a government cheese omelet. My Uncle Roosevelt (that was his first name, not his surname) used to get so much government cheese that he didn’t know what to do with it all, so he would give most of it to me and the common-law Mrs. Codger. Whole blocks of it! We’d have to shove it in the cup holders just to get it home! And let me tell you: That cheese was better than any cheese you could buy in the store. Those were the days before the government got cheap and cut off funding for most of the extremely delicious subsidization programs I so used to enjoy. An added benefit was that with the money I saved, I could put more of my money into an additional suet basket for my bird feeding area by my porch. That was when the government was at work for us, and not the other way around. Some of you will probably remember.
Now the first Mrs. Codger would have been able to turn that government cheese into dozens of delicious meals. She may have been a bit “touched”, but the woman knew how to cook. But since I was living with the current Mrs. Codger at the time, I had to rely on my own resourcefulness to turn all that cheese into a meal worthy of Mr. Zagat himself (three or more stars). That’s why I am going to share with you my recipe so that, should the government ever decide to trot out its cheese program again, you’ll be able to take full advantage of it:
Government cheese (lots)
Four eggs (hen fruit)
Cook in pan until done
Until next time!
