It will turn into a bow if I tell it to!!

The confidence of the seven year old spirit is mind boggling. Immediately after reading time but before sleep we talk in a random way. We talk about the book. Many times we talk about things we need to do or things we accomplished. Last night I mentioned that I needed to make cheese ribbons (a thinner, wider version of cheese straws). My daughter suggested that we make cheese bows, instead. I tried to explain that the dough was not really suitable for anything other than straight lines.

She said, "It will turn into a bow if I tell it to!" Maybe she is right. Today I will, with her assistance, attempt to make cheese bows. As she says, it is all a matter of will. If we want something badly enough we will find a way to accomplish it.

Cheese Bows - the perfect snack for the never say never crowd.

Update: It is possible, but impractical to create cheese bows. Here is the proof.
