Ode on the Mammoth Cheese

Weight over seven thousand pounds.

We have seen thee, queen of cheese,
Lying quietly at your ease,
Gently fanned by evening breeze,
Thy fair form no flies dare seize.
All gaily dressed soon you'll go
To the great Provincial show,
To be admired by many a beau
In the city of Toronto.
Cows numerous as a swarm of bees,
Or as the leaves upon the trees,
It did require to make thee please.
And stand unrivalled, queen of cheese.
May you not receive a scar as
We have heard that Mr. Harris
Intends to to send you off as far as
The great world's show at Paris.
Of the youth beware of these,
For some of them might rudely squeeze
And bite your cheek, then songs or glees
We could not sing, oh! queen of cheese.

We'rt thou suspended from balloon,
You'd cast a shade even at noon,
Folks would think it was the moon
About to fall and crush them soon.

Oxford Cheese Ode

The ancient poets ne'er did dream
That Canada was land of cream,
They ne'er imagined it could flow
In this cold land of ice and snow,
Where everything did solid freeze,
They ne'er hoped or looked for cheese.
A few years since our Oxford farms
Were nearly robbed of all their charms,
O'er cropped the weary land grew poor
And nearly barren as a moor,
But now the owners live at ease
Rejoicing in their crop of cheese.
And since they justly treat the soil,
Are well rewarded for their toil,
The land enriched by goodly cows,
Yie'ds plenty now to fill their mows,
Both wheat and barley, oats and peas
But still their greatest boast is cheese.
And you must careful fill your mows
With good provender for your cows,
And in the winter keep them warm,
Protect them safe all time from harm,
For cows do dearly love their ease,
Which doth insure best grade of cheese.
To us it is a glorious theme
To sing of milk and curds and cream,
Were it collected it could float
On its bosom, small steam boat,
Cows numerous as swarm of bees
Are milked in Oxford to make cheese.

Canajuns are indeed prolific 'poets' in the farm line. There's a famous pig poet as well. It would be a bit much of an evening to post her. I've saved some McIntyre for another day as well.

Good idea. Save some for another day.

Rae, the only fuel your brain needs in this whole wide world is CARBOHYDRATES! What do your muscles need to keep you moving? Carbs! It may help with immediate weight loss, but cutting out carbs, especially good, healthy, whole grains, is sooooooooo bad for your body and especially for your brain. I worry about these crazy diets...

Isn't Canada the home of "Black Diamond" cheese?

Every once in awhile, I'll see it in a store here. I love their sharp cheese.

mmmmm black diamond....mmmmmm
I have 50% reduced fat cheddar in my cheese drawer (blech). I also have manchego, black truffle cheese, pecorino romano, some old chunks of good sharp cheddar, some old french feta (yummy!), some old VT cream cheese.
Did I say I liked cheese?

it's not as good I'd hoped. It's a medium soft, very dull cheese. I can't taste the truffle.

I am beginning to think that perhaps if I am what I eat, I might be eggs. I could eat eggs (and things containing them) all day. I love eggs. And souffles and waffles and Yorkshire pudding and creme brulee and I could go on and on...

I opened the manchego, ate a big wedge of it. Good hangover food. I cut some into cubes and tossed it into the non-chiken noodle soup I had for lunch. Sooooo good!
