  1. woulda been fun… but glad i didn’t make it… i wish restaurants/chefs would come to realize there is a contingent of us out here that CANNOT STAND goat cheese… and that’s all they are using these days in their creations! …used to think i was the only one until i did some googling a couple of years ago and found forums full of fellow peeps with goat cheese aversion… wish i liked it, just don’t, and learned from a goat cheese maker that there is about 5% of the population with some sort of gene that I have that makes my disdain a ‘real’ one!

  2. Wendy,
    Thanks for sharing your thoughts. I have to admit I am not a huge fan of goat cheese myself. I only tried a few of the creations at the Cook-off last week. Not sure how many of them featured goat cheese, but I am pretty old school and tend to favor a sharp cheddar myself! Thanks for checking out my blog!

  3. Grilled cheese is a classic. Had one this weekend myself. Home-made, with Kraft American. Worked for me, but that grille filled with sandwiches makes my mouth water!

  4. Mike, Cheese & butter are my weakness! One of these day you will have to try a grilled cheese from the American Meltdown food truck. They have one that includes buffalo chicken. It is incredible!

  5. Hi, i think that i saw you visited my website thus i came to “return the favor”.
    I’m trying to find things to improve my website!I suppose its ok to use some of your ideas!!

  6. Nice post. I learn something new and challenging on sites I stumbleupon everyday.

    It’s always useful to read content from other authors and use something from other sites.
