As I was reading an article in the most recent Gourmet, it occurred to me. I was meant to live in the 50’s, host fabulous cocktail parties – complete with a too-cute dress, apron and heels – a dirty martini in one hand and a tray of hors devours in the other…and while this sounds great to me in theory it didn’t take me too long to realize I would be forced to live without things like my iphone, laptop, blogs etc so I quickly got back to reality. But it is true, there is nothing I like more than having friends over for some cocktails and hors devours.
Carr Valley Menage – This is a mix of cow, sheep and goat milk that is unbelievably creamy. Carr Valley, a local Wisconsin cheese company can pretty much do no wrong. I grew up eating the Carr Valley cheddar and swiss and I never really even knew until recently that they had artisanal cheeses – which I’ve definitely been enjoying! Try this one out!
As my grocery trips have started getting more and more expensive I wondered how I could reign it in a bit – I know people do this all the time – my parent’s called it an “austerity program” and I didn’t even have the slightest clue on how to spell that, so that tells you how many “austerity programs” I’ve been on in my adult life. Sorry Dad, I really am trying this time!!!
