I like cheese, and ice cream. Not necessarily together. It's rare that I meet a dairy product I don't like. Once in awile there's a cheese that throws me for a loop. I once bought a soft cheese, similar to brie, that surely was rotten. It had to be. It was the nastiest thing I'd ever smelled or tasted. It started with an R but I don't remember the name of it now. I figured it was worth $3 to find out.
Mudcatter Mad Maudlin recommended to me a German cheese called Harzer. She warned me that it smelled rather fragrant. I didn't care much for it either, but once again, it was worth $3 to find out.
My friend Craddock has a thing for smelly cheese. He is especially fond of Stilton, and has it out almost every time we go to his house. I can take it in small doses. I found a Stilton with cranberries once, though, and that was fabulous. The berries gave it a sweeter flavor.
Me, I like Gorgonzola on a salad, with some walnuts. Yummmmmm. And feta. I will make a complete ass of myself over feta cheese. Especially if it's accompanied by a little dish of Greek olives.
And chevre is excellent. It's really swell this way: Buy you one of them frozen 4-cheese pizzas, a pack of chevre (crumbled if you can find it), sun-dried tomatoes, and artichoke hearts. Then go fix up that pizza. You can turn it into a Greek pizza if you use feta instead of chevre, and add some olives.
Rum Raisin is my favorite Haagen-Dazs too, but they had another one years ago that I really liked, that they don't make anymore. Raspberry sorbet swirled with vanilla ice cream. So nowadays I just buy raspberry sorbet, and vanilla ice cream, and have a scoop of each. It isn't quite the same, but it will do.
I am now convinced that Khandu is a god, since he lives in Mississippi.
