Thank you, New Seasons Market, for introducing me to the best combo ever

I love shopping at New Seasons Market for many reasons...they're local, run by good people, support local farmers, and always have the most gorgeous organic produce. They're not like the shee-shee high end markets: in fact their tagline is the friendliest neighborhood store. Which reminds me: have you read their fine print? They're in neighborhoods, and it's true, their staff is friendly. And no, they're not paying me to write this, though I used to work at the agency who does their PR, so I suppose I'm biased. But I don't care. They're good peeps.

But I have something new to thank them for, and that is this:
The best treat ever

The tastiest cheese plate evah. Yes, I said evah. Because it's delicious. And New Seasons had this out for sampling in-store this past weekend. It's a pool of fragrant mellow acacia honey with a scoop of fromage blanc, and topped with the fine zest of a lemon. Serve with plain snappy crackers, like Croccantini, and you have The Tastiest Cheese Plate Evah.

Oooooo yum. We have a local food coop here and I belong. I think it is definitely the best place to shop for produce when the Farmer's Market isn't open. And yes, the cheeses, the bulk dried fruits, the pastries, oh I could go on!

Well, why don't you just go ahead and whet our appetites and make us squirm around for some delicious food.

Ummm... not for nothing... but isn't that how you say it? Evah, I mean.

Really must avoid your site during office time at work.

Yummm! I'm gonna have to try this. My naturopath put me on a milk, eggs & wheat elimination diet for a month, which is a challenge but at least she didn't ban cheese. I was so afraid she'd tell me I had to give up cheese - or chocolate! - and that would be impossible for me. Not that giving up milk, eggs & wheat is easy but I'm learning to like the substitutes. Or at least learning to try to like the substitutes.
