Despite being a self-proclaimed top chef, I don't always keep a well-stocked fridge. Some weeks, my work and social schedules force me into picking up a pre-made meal on the way home rather than whipping up something in my kitchen. But one thing you can always find in my fridge, no matter how busy life gets, is an abundance of cheese. Because, well, who can live without cheese? And if you're as big of a cheese enthusiast as me, you probably have plenty of cheese memes to share with fellow fans on National Cheese Day. (Yes it's a thing, because cheese is that important.)

I mean, think about it. No other food can do what cheese does. It can be crumbled atop a salad, grilled between two slices of bread, melted over a plate of tortilla chips, and transformed into a decadent dessert. These uses for cheese are almost as diverse as the types available for consumption. (Seriously, have you ever walked down the cheese aisle at a gourmet supermarket? You could get lost there. Of course, it wouldn't be the worst thing in the world to get lost in a sea of cheeses.) Cheese is a comfort food, a celebratory treat, and just a damn amazing delight. And it deserves a day of honor. So if you're looking to share the love with your friends, send them one of these cheese memes. And maybe a bit of brie on the side.
