Me? Obsessive? Perish the thought.
Popped over to Pastaworks
this morning to buy cheese and bread for today and tomorrow.( Collapse )
That's cheese for today's Christmas Eve dinner at tillyjane
's house. She's off tomorrow morning to visit my Aunt V. for the holiday, so we're celebrating now, and again on the 6th of January. It's also cheese for Christmas dinner at karindira
's house tomorrow, with all manner of people. Plus a bit of dairy cheer for Mother of the Child.( Collapse )
That's another round of Sottocenere al Tartufo, because you can't have too much of a good thing. Plus the Meadow Creek Dairy cheeses I recently procured from icedrake
, Appalachian, Grayson, Mountaineer and Hot Pepper Mountaineer. I'm also going to throw in some leftover Manchego which is loitering in my refrigerator. That's all being served with a quarter round of peasant bread and a half-sheet of garlic focaccia. ( Collapse )
That's another round of St Marcellin, since karindira
liked it so much at a recent party, plus some lovely Pastor Picón mixed-milk Spanish blue, as well Old Amsterdam Gouda and Ostallois -- a mix for less adventurous palates since I don't think the crowd at karindira
's is a cheese-oriented as the crowd at tillyjane
's. That will be served with a Parisienne bread from Pearl Street Bakery.( Collapse )
Since we're all going gaga over that Sottocenere al Tartufo around here lately I got a bit for the Mother of the Child, along with a rustic roll.
Full reports later on the new cheeses.
Whatever your holiday observance has been, is, or will be, enjoy then one and all with people you care for. I'm going to enjoy my family, my friends and my cheese, in that order.
