Izzy's Cheese Selection

They were sampling a trio of cheeses over at Murray's yesterday afternoon. Izzy was eager to try the stinky selection. One taste of this luscious, creamy-looking Brebirousse D'argental and he was sold, as was I. I immediately purchased a half pound hunk.

A. and I feasted upon it tonight. A dinner of bread, wine, cheese and olives. Something I would often do for lunch in Paris but hardly ever do here. It was nice to be inside on this cold night, savoring our simple meal.

My eating revery was interrupted when A.noted the price tag on this hunk of cheese..$10.78.. I blamed it on Izzy. The dangers of having a five year old cheese taster became apparent. Well not really. I explained that certain wonderful cheeses might seem costly but we needn't eat it all at once. Besides, it was still cheaper than going out for dinner.

I inadvertently bought a $16 hunk of Manchego last week for a party and then, when home, realized I'd overbought cheese altogether. I blame the children as well. Yikes.

Bean's Mum: Was it worth it? There's always something yummy to be done with leftover cheese.

I HAVE additional leftover cheese from the party. Suggestions? Fondue night in my double boiler?
