I know, I know. The 12 days of Christmas are technically after Christmas, and twelve days starting now will just get us to Christmas Eve. But I said this was GP style and I do things my own way. Plus, I've taken a real hiatus and this is going to get me back into the swing of things. You know you missed me!
I think I've mentioned my dear friend with whom I have a great foodie birthday tradition. It started years ago and we always hunt down some fun, new treat to share with the other for her birthday. I keep my eyes peeled all year and I've been turned on to some great treats from her. So, for the next twelve days (I'm going to try really, really hard to stay on schedule!) I'm going to share some of my fantastic finds. Granted, it may be a little late to have some of these shipped for Christmas gifts so instead you should think of the tips as my gift to you. A big thanks for sticking with me through postings, prolific and sparse.
So, without further ado... The first day of Christmas, GP style:
Breakfast Cheese from Belle Chevre.
Holy good God. This is GOAT CHEESE you spread on breakfast items. Yummy, flavored, whipped goat cheese. This was my birthday present this year and I'm still savoring it. When it arrived, I didn't have bagels in the house (it's billed as a cream cheese substitute) but I did have wheat english muffins. Perfect. I've also tried it on multi-grain toast. Also perfect.
I received the Fig, Honey and Coffee varieties. Fig is gone. Long gone. I just opened Coffee this week. It's good. I mean it's goat cheese. But the coffee flavor is pretty subtle, which is a departure from the very figgy Fig variety. Maybe that's ok though. I'll be sure to let you know about Honey in the future.
