When it comes to eating, what is your guilty pleasure? I’d have to say that mine, by far, is a good, aged, pungent, aromatic, full-flavored Blue Cheese – bar none.
Give me a quiet night, a nice strong, full-bodied beer and a luscious, savory, pungent sinfully rich Blue Cheese that is biting, nutty, mushroomy and chock-full of ooey-blooey goodness, and you’ll have one happy girl on your hands.
And, when I’m off kitchen duty, or the husband is out of town, you can be sure to find me recklessly indulging in savory bites of a buttery, velvety, rich and powerful Blue Cheese that is sure to not only tempt the palate, but awaken the taste buds and send you off into heavenly, cheesy bliss.
Now, I don’t allow myself to indulge in such guilty pleasures often (especially at 28.99 per pound), but when I do…I think how each luscious, nutty, flavorful bite is worth every.single.penny that I paid for it.
And, don’t be put-off or frightened by the per pound price! I bought a .33 lb. wedge for $9.57, and the husband and I didn’t finish half of it. It is that rich and satisfying.
I ask you…where can you get an appetizer for $5 for just the two of you? Even if you indulge in the whole wedge – you’re still under $10 for an appetizer for two!
Of course, I seem to need to justify it to myself by saying that I’m not a coffee junkie (so no trips to Starbucks or Seattles Best Coffee for me); nor do I indulge in luxurious, decadent sweets or desserts ~ but when it comes to Blue Cheese ~ all bets are off, and I cave to the pressure.
Caveman Blue pressure.
That’s some serious pressure right there – I mean cavemen carry clubs and live in dark caves and stuff.
Caveman Blue…I so love you. Will you marry me?
