VFP12 Cheese Shredding

In reality, shredding cheese in a food processor really only makes sense for large quantities, due to the difficultly of cleaning up afterward.  For this test, we used a mere 8 0z of extra sharp cheddar cheese, which was placed in the freezer for 15 minutes to minimize ‘balling up’ on top of the disk.
