A Cheesy Story

cheese out of the box

It took two people with higher education a certain lapse of time to fit these cheeses in the cheese drawer so that it could be slid back into place in the refrigerator.  It felt like one of those extra-credit exercises given on a Friday afternoon just before vacation.  I guess this would have been geometry class.  We won’t mention how much time went by before we actually realized this is a cheese drawer.

As I ate my meal mainly composed of fruit, I began to pair the fruit and cheese. (I did have to pare the pear a bit where there were bruises.)  I have seen many a guide to wine and cheese pairing, but never one for fresh fruit.  My opinion is that Comté goes well with apple and pear goes nicely with Roquefort, but what to have with a banana?  Yogurt is a good idea, maybe mascarpone would be ideal, but chèvre had to do for tonight.  Maybe hardcore frugivores don’t eat cheese.  But who could live in France and not eat cheese?

About djdfr

Daily life experiences by a Franco-American woman living in the Breton countryside form the basics of this blog. Gardening, watercolour, choral music, food, are some of my interests. I seek to balance the physical, mental and spiritual. I am a free believer praying from the Bible, the Qur’an and The Revelation of Arès. In 1974, with Jesus as the messenger, and in 1977, manifesting as a stick of light, Our Creator spoke directly to a man in Arès, France, named Michel Potay. The message is in the book “The Revelation of Arès”. It is a call for us to change, to practice love, peacemaking, forgiveness, to free ourselves from all prejudice, to develop our spiritual intelligence, the intelligence of the heart.

    I think you might need a nice sharp cheddar for a banana. They are starting to appear in French supermarkets. Love your cheese drawer solution!
