Another Weekend Assignment Rewind (Because I am tired and cranky and don’t have anything nice to say.)
Weekend Assignment #311: What is your favorite kind of cheese and why? Do you have it often, or just occasionally?
Extra Credit: Is there a kind of cheese you hate?
I actually thought that I was a serious fan of cheese. Then I discovered Whole Foods. I tried different types of cheese and hated plenty. Then, because I wasn’t done with the game, I started trying every variety of Cheddar – Irish, Australian, you get the idea. It turns out that I like Vermont Cheddar and Hoffman’s Super Sharp Cheddar the best. And I think you can get both at Costco.
I find this utterly ridiculous because I love cheese. Love it. I have rejected Five Guys because it does not have cheese sauce for their fresh cut french fries. Seriously? I don’t care how good your burgers are, Five Guys – I am going to Meatheads. And having a grilled cheese sandwich.
Wait. I just did that for lunch.
This is where my mother says, “I keep telling you. You just do not have gourmet tastes.” In my defense, I have outgrown Velveeta. I think. I haven’t had it in a really long time, anyway. The cheese I have most often is parmesan. On my pasta. At Noodles & Company.
I actively dislike stinky cheeses. I enjoy blue cheese on a cobb salad, but that is about it.
Have I answered the question? What is my favorite cheese? The kind that comes from Wisconsin. Pasteurized.
