WHO CUT THE CHEESE?

Actually, ’twas our host who cut the cheese and put it into the salad and also served it in the yard with cut fruit slices. We had never tasted this cheese before, and it was wonderful. Quite frankly, sitting in the back yard in November in NYS was a treat all by itself. Eating the […]
