Cheese

So, I have this deep and abiding love for cheese...most cheese. I hate Brie, but other than that, good cheese is my weakness. I eat cheese with fruit and wine for dinner at least once a week.

I just recently discovered another amazing French cheese. My absolute favorite cheese is a French cheese called Comte. This new cheese was at the store near the Comte, so I figured I'd try it. It's called Boursin. It has this wonderful smoothness, kind of like cream cheese, but without the long thick finish in your mouth. It also isn't chalky, like many soft cheeses can be. The texture is wonderful, and the taste is a nice blend of garlic, saltiness (in a good way), and rich cheeseyness. Yum.

I highly recommend it if you run across it....and if you've never tried Comte, you haven't lived.

Me too! Cheese makes me happy :)
I made the most amazing salad Satuday with the dressing being three leaf balsamic vinegar, extra virgin olive oil, pepper, garlic (my addition), and Gotes Catalenes cheese.....mixed with some spring greens, red peppers, blanched green beans and grilled rosemary chicken breasts :)
The cheese made the salad so creamy and beautiful :) All this while camping with no water or electricity! Mmmmmmm......
