When in doubt, throw it out.
Gosh I wish I could do the same with cheese.
|symbolic to my hazy perception of this cheese|
My Co Op has such a great deal that when you sign up to assist, prior to the class, you get to attend the class for half the price. Score!
I had so much fun chopping onions, and toasting almonds, and talking about food with the chef. She was so nice and helpful. I had a great time. And the class itself? You curious foodies :) the class taught me how to make 3 different soups (black bean, curried butternut, and french onion) and 1 basic vegetarian stock.
They were all tasty, but the black bean won my heart. It was so simple and creamy (without the cream ha). I may have been partial to it any way since I sauteed the bell peppers that were the garnish. I learned some great tips about beans and... red miso! I never intend to write about that stuff yet for some reason it comes up more often than not. Funny.
With my Co Op class, also comes a discount of $5. So I went shopping at my most favorite place!
I am ALWAYS on the look out for strange, good looking cheeses at the Co Op. I just know they get pricy, so I only buy them when I can get a discount. Today, after inspecting about 20 kinds of cheese, I went with a raw cow milks cheese (but the bleu brie was a close second). And for some strange reason, I did not smell it first. DOH!
I came home and my grocery bag was r a n k. I sniffed around the bag and quickly realized what was causing the smell.
I know that this is a food blog, and I should keep things appetizing, but when I tell you guys that this cheese smelt like butt... it is only out of honesty.
Well, I knew I had to try it, being that I did just spend 6 bucks on it.
So I held my breath. Knifed a piece. And spat it out. It was that bad.
Maybe it was because I smelt it first? Maybe it was because it really was that repulsive. I was a little upset by it all to be honest. I was anticipating a cheesier, tangy punch. But hey, that's what trying new, funky, strange cheese is all about right?
|Love my little cheese plate set. I had to share it with you guys :)|
I'm anticipating it to taste like a Kombucha. Maybe it's like a wanna-be brand? I think I got it at the Co Op when I went last week. Gosh I love that place.
The nutrient info looks pretty... plain
With finals over (party!
The rest of my Saturday consists of watching a movie with some friends, eating vegetables, cleaning, and reading. Such a hip teenager !
