Blue cheese that is. I dont know what got into me but I had such a craving for blue cheese I ended up getting three different kinds. Am I lacking mold in my diet or what? I love the tangy, edgy bite of the blues and if I wasnt in such a hurry I would have picked up some gorgonzola too. The reason I didnt get any gorgonzola is because at my cheese shop there are two lines - one where you can pick up and pay and the other where you wait patiently until its your turn to order pieces in half pound minimums. My kid was sleeping in the car and I wanted to run in and run out so it put a damper on the 'wait and order' notion.
No matter, in less than three minutes I had what I needed to put out the blue cheese fire. I picked up a couple of Balthazar Boulangerie baguettes - dang thats way too many 'b's, I wasted no time and loaded it up with unsalted butter and a slab of Saga. How do you make something decadent a bit more decadent - sweet butter thats how! What is even better? Homemade blue cheese - check back in a couple of months when I unveil my creation.
Snacks out of the way it was time for lunch. I made a cornchip crusted tilapia filet with wasabi mayonaise inserted into another crusty hunk of tasty baguette.
Ah, Saturday nights all right for fighting but Saturday day is a good time to nosh.
