This months cheese tray was a pretty simple one. And by simple I mean, I was in a hurry and went with some of my stand-by favorites.
Aged Gouda: I would eat you always and forever. You are my favorite, all by yourself. (Errr…preferably with some wine)
Carr Valley Monastery: A cow milk cheese that is “hand rubbed and cellar cured.” It is “creamy textured and intensely flavored.” I liked but didn’t love. There are so many Carr Valley cheeses that I like more than this one so I would probably skip it next time. I’m hoping that on my next trip to Madison I have a chance to stop by a Carr Valley store. They have so many more varieties that I can’t find here in MN.
Brie: I would also love you forever my dear Brie. However, I need to bake you with apples. It has been far too long.
