Cheese rules! PS I'm cleaning up your multi-posts, k.

I'm also a big fan of popcorn and chestnuts. Can't resist Mom's cheesecake, either, but she doesn't make it much anymore.

[email protected] baby cheeses Laughing Laughing Laughing

My bro-in-law is a huge Spam fan. He collects Spam stuff, really, he does.

He has snuck Spam into a few things that I actually ate and enjoyed. Then he tells me what is in it, ICK! I always quiz him now.

Jes - time for some cheese poetry? have you still got the McIntyre link i sent ya?

i am indeed a yogurt smuggler. chocolate yogurt and Lava soap. my 2 big smuggling items. Weird thing. The lava soap is made here, i once got someone a job at the factory that makes it. They just don't sell it here. My mother and I usually buy about a dozen bars at a time when we cross over to Watertown.

Alas, I no longer have the cheese poetry link. Hmm, let's see if we can make some of our own.

I will now sing the pleasures of cheese
the one food that won't make me sneeze
it's so delicious but
it's powerful when cut
and gives off a most noxious breeze

There's an ad on t.v. that claims cheese made from California cows are better, because they are "contended." Smile c.i.

Contended?

I like the unpasteurized illegally imported French cheeses, myself. And French butter. Makes American butter seem so watery by comparison!

Of course, I have a dirty little secret -- I also like the white American cheese you can get at the deli counter in the market. It makes good sandwiches, every now and then. With a bowl of tomato soup. When I need to indulge my Dark Side. Don't tell anyone!

LOL... marycat, your secret is safe here!

I made a quick trip to the gourmet shop, where I found four cheeses made from sheep's milk... Lou Perac, Manchego, P-Tit Basque, Pecorino.

Yummm.... I bought the Pecorino because it has a stronger flavor.

The prices averaged about $15 per pound. That seemed really high to me, too, so I only bought a small piece, and I'm savoring each little bite.

I'd like to try French butter. I wonder if I can find it around here.

Very Happy

I love manchego. First time I remember having it was at the restaurant JerryR ran. <sigh> Good times....

PaL - the real French butter you won't find. Made from unpasteurized milk, which our government is apparently very nervous about. Now, far more people get sick from pork each year than from dairy, but there you have it...

marycat - head north - we can get a rather nice selection of cheeses made from unpasteurized milk - european and canajun.

the worst ever butter? in holland. It tastes like gouda gone bad. <shudder>

Hi patiodog..... pork industry lobbyists??..... just a guess..... personally, I very very rarely eat pork.... we raised our own pig and that meat is in our freezer, but that's the only pork I will eat.

My neighbor has a milk cow, but she pasturizes everything.... maybe I could 'borrow' a bucket of fresh milk, and make some butter.... Idea

A trip to Canada sounds like a good idea, too.......

Very Happy
