Sticking with the cheese theme for a bit, I have to share this amazing discovery I happened upon while spending New Year's in Bodega Bay, CA last year. I quite literally just grabbed Cowgirl Creamery's Mt. Tam on a whim while picking up groceries. I liked that it was local. I liked that it was triple creme. Other than that, I had no special insight. When a vacation housemate with more experience in the area showed up with groceries saying "You MUST try this cheese" and took Mt. Tam out of the bag, I knew there had been some divine intervention in my impulse buy. I think we all know the frequency with which I pray to the cheese gods, so I'm not surprised they looked out for me.
So we had a lot of very rich cheese between 6 adults and I can honestly tell you not a bit went to waste. The best was having it for breakfast spread over fresh sourdough toast instead of butter. Heart attack waiting to happen, but so very worth it!
