A Lazy Saturday Afternoon…

So I’m sitting her at 3:37pm, still in my PJs… gotta love that.  Adam cooked a delicious breakfast scramble with the Ascutney Mountain cheese I bought earlier in the week at Saxelby and we had a wonderful cup of coffee sweetened with a tiny bit of the vanilla macadamia nut sugar we bought on our honeymoon in Hawaii last year.  Mmmmmmmmm.  I’m quite fond of lazy Saturdays.  Aren’t you?

Anyway, I’m excited about a few cheese-related things.  First, I got a couple comments on my blog this week from the people over at Cabot!  Because I linked to their site every time I raved about the Cabot Clothbound Cheddar (swoon), they found my blog and thanked me for the kind words.  I thought that was really cool.

Second, I am helping a friend of mine plan an all-American cheese plate for Thanksgiving, and I am planning the same for my Thanksgiving celebration as well.  Cabot Clothbound Cheddar is definitely going to be there – 100%.  I’m working out the other selections this weekend.  On the list of potentials right now are:

God – this list makes me DROOL!  America has really got it going on with the cheese these days!!  These cheeses are all fantastic!  So my goal in putting together a cheese plate (all from America) is to include cheeses made from a variety of milks – cow, goat & sheep – AND to include a variety of cheese styles – hard, soft, washed-rind, bloomy-rind, mountain-style, crumbly, creamy, etc.  This will make the cheese plate super interesting and enlightening for the guests!  I’ll let you know what my final choices are after I do a little tasting and comparing!

Meanwhile, still loving the new lens!  Here are my photos from the last 2 days:

"Man Looking Out a Cafe Window" - Settings: ISO 3200, f/3.2, 1/15 sec, 100mm macro lens

I took this on Clinton Street while walking to my yoga class on Thursday.  The close 2nd runner up is this one, which I took a few minutes earlier on the opposite side of the street:

"Window Shopping" - Settings: ISO 3200, f/3.2, 1/125 sec, 100mm macro lens

This one I took of my friend Wendy while she was looking in the bathroom mirror putting on her makeup.

And these are a few more from the past couple days that I really love:

 

So that’s all for this lazy Saturday.  Hope everyone’s having a wonderful weekend!
