If Its Good, Its Expensive
Remember those cheese ads that said "Behold the power of cheese"?
Well, I'm one of those people that can be totally captivated by cheese. I love cheese. The problem is my favorite cheeses are always so damn expensive.
Have you ever had Jarlsburg Swiss?
Our local Giant Eagle has a spread made with this wonderful cheese. Its shredded Jarlsburg, scallions and I think some red onion.
I think the container is maybe 6 or 8 oz. Its a small small container. Smaller than a cream cheese tub.
Do you know how much that spread costs?
Oye and ouch!
I was lucky that at New Year's it was on sale for $3.99. That almost never happens. So I bought it then and now its almost gone and I'm going to go through cheese withdrawals.
I swear all the wonderful good cheeses are all an arm and a leg. I love Harvati cheese and that's another one that will break the bank, especially if you can get the butter Havarti in the fall. We used to get that cheese back when Hickory Farms were still in the malls.
Nom Nom Nom.
I won't even start with marscapone, which is the fancy Italian cheese used in tiramisu.
Cheese...it has me under its spell.
What's your favorite cheese?
