Thanks everyone.  The cheese plate was well received and the brie was a big hit.  Is really nice once it has aired for a bit.

Classic, Jeff. 8)

Kudos and a cheese to you. That really looks authentic.

What, no pics of the glorious cheese plate? :'(

Hi Boofer,

Here's the plate Boofer, just for you!  Middle is the brie, then, starting at the 12 o'clock position and going clockwise, we have 2year+ Gouda, 2 week Feta, caerphilly (2 months maybe?), and finally, the 1 year+ Derby.

The wine glass is a huge one, so the scale is off.  But, that aside, it's not a big cheese plate.  This was just for a sampler because we were having a huge meal afterwards.

Actually, I'm a bit concerned that Jeff appears to have stolen my plate - I'd wondered where it had gotten to.  What's up with that, Jeff, hmmmmmm??   8)

Hi George/Mary,

That is a great looking plate cheese!  All I know is that some guy had plates for sale, cheep.  Said they fell off the back of a truck, and I didn't ask any more questions.  I feel a bit sheepish really, so, I'll tell you what.  You come on by and I'll share some cheese with you and return the plate, filled with cheese.  Deal?

Deal!  Although it might be a while - if I wait till I get my telekinesis, then I can just pop over and pop back, without all that pesky air travel in the middle.   ;D

(hmmmmm, maybe that's how we can finally get forum cheese tastings!  I volunteer the use of my telekinesis as soon as I get it.  8))

Mary, I've been thinking of having a cheese-tasting meet up here at my land since there's quite a few folks in the NY and New England area.  It could be a fun thing.  Not sure when but I'll let everyone know.  RI isn't that far away if you're up for some travel.  And YOU, because you're specially nice, could stay over in the guest room.  THere are even loaner cats if you need one for the night.  (Although I don't advise it because they always want out, being concerned that they're missing something elsewhere in the house)   :D   -Kathrin

I think we'll still have to wait on the telekinesis.   ;)  Conventional travelling is not in my future.

Thought that might be true but didn't want to skip the invitation just in case!   :)
