    Just a note I thought I could not eat Parmesan cheese, then I took a good look at the label, I started buying Parmesan in a block and grate it myself.
    The pre shredded Parmesan has added things that are not in the blocks.
    My are with you all. May you all find a way to peace and joy in your lives.
