National Cheese Day

Well, I'd prefer cheese and bread to anything sweet. So this is my day.
All I can think is this...

Maytag Bleu - just stunningly wonderful. 
Red Leicester
Cheddar - real cheddar
Sweet Home Farm - to you, I raise my glass. You make me happy.
Cowgirl Creamery - wish you were closer.
I can't believe I didn't post about home made mascarpone cheese - damn it - will rectify that situation. It was unreal. No, really it was. Made some excellent polenta. 
Neal's Yard - oh, I miss England so much (See Stilton, Red Leicester, Cheddar). 
Murray's - okay. Are you the dorky Scrubs fan who just wants to yell -- "Murray." I just would love to live in a big city... 

Well, I could go on and on (and on and one), but will not. Suffice it to say. Sigh. There is only so much cheese in the world. It's still one of my favorite things in the world. 

Bayou Teche Biere - Biere Pale

Well, what are you going to say after you meet the guys from the brewery. I'm me and I'm going to tell you how it is, not some spin after meeting some really great guys. The LA 31 Biere Pale is excellent and I totally get what the Knott brothers are trying to do with beer  - beer that fits the Gulf Coast life style - people north of us, just have to suck it.  Now I just hope that we'll have easier access to Bayou Teche Brewery beer soon!

turn of phrase ... or not

I read somewhere the other day that a person described herself as "jealous with envy." Now just what does that mean? Why not just be envious and be done with it.
