This Week's Tasting Plate: It's a Wonderful Life/Cheese

With all the mundane activities we busy ourselves with to get through the day--chores like changing in and out of pajamas, driving places and selecting throw pillows for the couch--it's easy to forget that every precious second of life is a wondrous mystery.

That is, unless you're DMX and you just discovered Google. In case you'd forgotten how freaking crazy the Internet is as an invention, let this video remind you. It takes the rapper close to an hour just to type in the three letters of his name and then his world is just completely rocked. We want to be rocked like this today. Rock us universe!

If you are similarly looking for a thrill, we think you should drop by the store this week. Cheese be crazy, y'all. It can go from grass to delicious dairy in four days. Sometimes we wish we could erase our memory so that we could taste a certain cheese for the first time all over again (same for watching Friday Night Lights). You have this power!

This week, we have the Pleasant Ridge Reserve Uplands, an Alpine-style cheese that has won Best in Show by the American Cheese Society twice, Crater Lake Blue and Sand Creek Gouda. The tasting plate is loaded up with smoked habanero Cheddar from Beehive and eating it reminds of us sitting near a campfire. Can you imagine! Thanks cheese, for reminding us of life's little miracles every single day.
