Cheese is a must.
Each year this challenge runs, some sort of a theme needs to be about cheese. And why, you may ask? Longer members of this challenge may recall one before this run by “We Work for Cheese,” a tremendous little blog from several years ago.
One of the faces of that blog – Nicky – lost a battle with cancer a few years ago after running a similar challenge for a few years. The challenge was one I stumbled upon years ago when I was looking for different challenges to use for my blog.
A year or so after that challenge ended, I started this one, though doing it a little differently and trying to shape it in my own way. Still, that challenge was one I truly enjoyed and the people who participated were fantastic.
Therefore, in memory of Nicky, I always try to have a theme based on cheese.
I do love me some cheese.
Actually, there aren’t many types of cheeses I don’t like. And for those I might not enjoy, I’ve at least tried them.
I mean, cheddar is always a favorite. But there are so many great cheeses.
It’s why I love going to bigger grocery stores. It always amazes me to find those center sections filled with different cheeses. Though it’s about an hour away, the nearest Wegman’s to me has an incredible selection of cheeses. Whenever I go to this place, I always try and find a thing or two to take and try. It’s rare that I’m disappointed.
I’ve often said if I could live on fruit and cheese, I’d likely be willing to give up meat. Alas, that wouldn’t do well for my health, so I’ll just do what I currently do with cheese – have it in moderation and enjoy each piece.
But what to have cheese with?
How about all of the above?
The beauty of cheese is how versatile it can be. You can have it as a snack or as part of a main meal. It goes good with beer and wine, or even soda and flavored water.
You can see where this goes.
Basically, cheese is one of the most amazing foods out there. I mean, there aren’t many things better than a fresh pizza with that beautiful gooey cheese!
So how about you?
What’s your favorite cheese? And what do you prefer it with or on?
