This Week's Tasting Plate: Carpe Cheese-um

We don't spend a lot of time on the Dairymaid Diary contemplating the fleeting nature of time and our fugitive plans. We're just cheesemongers, after all. But seriously how is it already almost August and how have we only been to the pool once and bought a watermelon twice?

Summer will be over before you know it, "Call Me Maybe" will be a forgotten casualty of the past and your obsession with doing Michael Caine impressions after watching The Trip will burn out like a candle lit on both ends. 

Cheese is not there for you either! Pretty sure any time we've relied on food for emotional support it's actually disappeared faster. The seconds are ticking by as you read this. Quickly, bite into some cheese!

It's aging as we speak! Luckily, in the case of the California Crottin from Redwood Hill, that is a good thing. It gets firmer and the flavor intensifies, like diamonds. Maybe.

This week we'll also have Ewe's Blue from Old Chatham, Granbury Gold and Cowgirl Creamery's Pierce Point. The time is now. Carpe Cheese-um.
