The Cheese Thread!

so, I figured I should stop posting about cheese (maybe) in the story association thread thing and start posting about it here... so what do you think of cheese?

It's cheesy.









I had a cheese lover's pizza from Pizza Hut tonight. Okay, just 7/12 of the large pizza. I like cheese, but that was just too much cheese. It's back to meat lover's next time. Supreme tastes good, too, but it doesn't taste as good the next day.

Oooops! Wrong thread. sorry.

Speaking of cheese threads, I am quite fond of string cheese.

Fond....Fond duLac ...that's in Wisconsin...where they have lotsa cows and make lotsa cheese!

What I want to know is why I can't find a package of cheese curds in any of the stores around here.

I love cheese. Cheese is good. recently people have been giving me cheese. I got some super smelly cheese from a co worker, her husband made her bring it to work and I am the garbage disposal here! Then someone else brought me a pound of mozzerella and a 1/2 of feta. I love the cheese! I will eat it. The more stinky the more I seem to like it. Hmm I like bread, cheese, and apples from breakfast. Or anytime. sounds yummie.

Cheese good. Thanks for starting the thread. hmmmskers.

As Homer Simpson would say "Mmmmm, cheese".

Something I haven't seen in decades is Double Gloucester with walnuts. Now that was a cheese.

Try a traditional cheese fondue. The liquor is very expensive, you can substitute organic cherry juice. You also need to follow the instruction to add a bunch of corn starch. I like to experiment by adding different cheeses, but you may need some more cheese or oil if they aren't as rich as the Swiss cheeses called for in the recipe.

Quick recipe- take some fish, cover it with crumbled Feta, cover the feta with stips of roasted red peppers (they come in a jar).
Wrap it or place it in a covered pan and cook at 300 until done.

Lala,

I've had Red dragon (whole foods has it) yum.
I'm becoming a cheese snob (thanks to whole foods). Been feasting
on Keen's or Montgomery Cheddar, French Chantal (a cheddar like cheese),
and hitting the aged gouda real hard.
Another that's wonderful is Mancheco (sp?) a hard spanish cheese,
drizzle with Olive oil and then top with herb mix. It's also good when
drizzled with honey.
I just want to know why is it all the cheese I really like are over $15.00 a pound?

Have you every checked igourmet.com? The good thing about the expensive cheese is one tends to eat less--as it is more satisfying, besides more expensive!


Right now Whole Foods seems like the closest gourmet cheese retailer to me. But I've my open for additional shops! Colorado has some excellent boutique cheesemakers!

Once I came home from the market with what I thought was a cheese I knew but it was a different cheese from the same dairy, so the packaging was nearly identical. When I opened it, it was pretty strong and it tasted stinkier than it smelt.

On the other side of my back fence lived a big dog. Sometimes when he started to bark at night, I'd go to the freezer and get a piece of chicken or a couple frozen fish sticks and feed it to him. That usually shut him up for a good long time. So, I decided he might like the cheese, so next time he started with the barking, I offered a slice through the fence. I didn't even have to call him over because you could smell this stuff half a block away, so a dog would be able to smell it for like half a mile. He liked it a lot! I gave him another slice and then another. It wasn't until I offered him the last slice that I realized that "slice" wasn't cheese but a piece of paper that was used to separate the slices. It added a little fibre to his diet, eating all those papers along with the cheese slices. I bet I could have fed him the paper alone and he would have eaten that.

Tillamook country represent! Wisconsin and California can keep whatever they've got, I'll stick to the local chedder.

The cheese I've met that I genuinely don't like is blue. The stuff even looks like the results of a really bad California mastitis test.

How does one tell if Blue Cheese is moldy?

It may not be fancy, but my life revolves around Kraft grated parmesan. A couple shakes, add a little Tobasco sauce, and just about anything can taste good...

My favorite cheese is some type of hard english cheddar. The only type that's good, though, is real English cheese. Like made in England.


Mhmmmmmmm..........
