From Cheddar Cheese to Brie

I'm just a lowly cheddar cheese ball, come roll away with me past gastronomical delights, to taste and smell and see varieties of cheeses that stretch on across the miles that vie for the attention of hungry cheese-o-philes! Some are common kinds of chumps like Jack and Mozzarella used in down home sandwich shops, or finely sliced on pizza tops. Then there's the Italian clan for the sophisticated pallet like Romana and Gargonzola that rank high on the cheese ballot. European cheeses are delectable, such as Havarti and Guyere ranging from mild to smoky rich, they have that nutty flare. On top of the cheesy food chain are most certainly the French who've made an art of nuance that puffs out their cheesy chests with Blue de Basse and Camembert, they are among the best. But the BIG cheese, queen of cheeses, is the creamy, heavenly Brie mixed with raspberries and chocolate, it's as delightful as can be eaten with or d'oeuvres or paired with the finest wine no other cheese is more superb, delicious or sublime. And yet, some folks still prefer a lowly, cheddar cheese ball and for them, I truly am the greatest cheese of all! Written on 11/12/2018

Well, Laura, I'm not exactly a "cheese-o-phile", but I do love...certain...varieties of cheese. I think of all of them, Colby Jack is my favorite...with Extra Sharp Cheddar a close second. And I tend to agree with Michelle's "mouth-watering" comment.
