I sometimes, ok a lot of times, put my foot in it. I’m good at saying the wrong thing. I think I offended the cheese guy at our local grocery store yesterday. I was looking at the cheeses, most of them generic and mass produced, and he asked me if I was finding what I was looking for. I said yes though I lamented the fact it is so hard to find a large variety of cheeses. I mean go to Europe and they all have personality and variety. Of course he said we have lots of cheeses. I paused and said yes for America I suppose we do. He got huffy and said well we’re in America. Yes, yes we are. I quickly moved on.
I was able to find a few good cheeses for our PTA meeting of the officers to go with the wine we had. Had a lovely bottle of Cotes de Rhone. There were a few tomatoes in the garden ready to be picked so I grabbed a few with some basil to balance it all out. Pleased to say the meeting went well and the cheeses were left with huge dents!
