Yay! I know I started a blog eating diary, then promptly didn't post again for a week. Believe it or not, there is a logical explanation for this. I've been out of town, without access to the interwebz! I figured I would hate it, but it turned into quite a restful experience.
Anyhoo- I will pick up where I left off. The good news is, even though I haven't been blogging what I eat, I haven't had any fast food!
Today I had home made waffles, sausage and Earl Grey tea for breakfast, then a cheese quesadilla for lunch (filled with gruyere cheese).
When we got home earlier today, I realized I had a cheese drawer full of odds and ends of cheeses, all of which were very close to inedible. Whilst trying to figure out what to do about them all, I remembered an old episode of Alton Brown's show "Good Eats." In this particular episode, Alton uses up a bunch of cheeses by making Fromage Fort. I figured I'd give it a try and see how I did. He says you can use any cheeses. I had these laying around: gruyere, provolone, parmesan, Raspberry Bellavitano and Drunken Goat. I used a Riesling because I didn't have any dry white wine around.
The spread turned out very well. I predict we will be snacking on it happily for the rest of the week. I'll take a pic of some later, when I feel like getting up off the couch!
