My Love Affair With The Sheep Lady Continues

It's been too long. Every year, the sheep lady goes on hiatus during lambing season, generally mid-March until sometime in June. Then she only shows up at the Union Square Market on Saturdays. It isn't until September that she appears Wednesdays and Saturdays. So when I finally saw her this past Wednesday it was the first time in months.

She showered me with samples of her wonderful cheeses, instantly reminding me of how I loved them so. Izzy and I adore the Brebis Blanche (sheep's milk farmer's cheese) and I also bought some of the firm Tomme-like cheese as well (A. ate the entire hunk).

I also picked up some of the new fatter links of lamb sausage available. Seasoned with fennel, these grilled up quite nicely. Everything is already gone (Izzy had a sandwich with Brebis Blanche and Artichoke Hearts) and I am already looking forward to this Wednesday. I am not sure how I managed all these months without.
