Cheese Dust: “Food is not a public trust.”
warn advise you; now that Groundhog Day is over Lady M will be making appearances for 6 more weeks. Objective: hyping the 5th anniversary of her signature Let’s Move! program. My how time flies!

And what about the preppers? What are they going to hoard?
Now I understand that – when used incorrectly – cheese dust can be very dangerous:
Butt then, when used incorrectly, what can’t?
