Cheeses, Mary, and Joseph!

I once told you that I would share the bizarre and glorious love affair I have with cheese. The suspense ends here. I have a serious attachment to that which was formerly milk. It just makes me feel good. Sometimes, I confess, if I’m feeling blue I eat a cube of cheese and my woes just melt away. I won’t even get started on the intoxicating ecstasy that occurs when you add wine to the mix, we wouldn’t want things to get R-rated now would we?

So recently when was looking for a good cheese counter in the Tampa Bay area, I couldn’t settle for anything less than excellent. Whole Foods is pretty good, as is Fresh Market, and Publix Greenwise.

But, when I stumbled upon Nature’s Food Patch on Cleveland and was very pleasantly surprised. They had a great selection and a wonderful Fromager who was a total Cheese-head and was even more obsessed yours truly!

She turned me on to a couple really yummy treats, a cheese magazine called Culture (ha!) and this amazing Fig Jam. It was divine paired with the Guinness Cheddar I picked up.

Now I’ll get to the true purpose of this post. Whenever I have a wine and cheese party, or sometimes a good tuesdaynight cheese plate, I like to make these adorable little markers.

 Here is what you’ll need:

 Hot Glue Gun

Some little wooden squares from your local craft store.

Wooden Skewers from the craft store, dollar store or supermarket.

Sharpie.

Add a little glue to the skewer…

Then glue the wooden piece on and hold for about 5 seconds.

The results are simple and whimsical.

    We often drive from Plant City to Whole Foods just for the cheese. So excited to find out there’s another option to buy good cheese!!!

      Do you have a nature’s food patch in Plant City? The one I go to is in downtown Clearwater. That would be great if you could find something closer! I have to imagine there are some great farm cheese out there in the country though, would be a good thing to look into. 🙂
