I sort of disappeared. I don't think I've ever gone more than a month without blogging.
But a lot of that time was spent in lovely Wisconsin. There are lots of good things about Wisconsin, especially my sister's family who lives there, but what I want to write about is the ice cream and cheese. I am pretty sure I only missed one day of eating ice cream in the entire two weeks I was there. And there was lots of fresh cheese curd.
But I didn't try Blue Moon ice cream. I'm sorry, but bright blue Fruit Loop flavored ice cream isn't my thing. They also had other unique flavors that I had to have explained to me. I skipped the Superman ice cream too.
And the cheese. There is a cheese factory along the road where I drove often so I'd stop to get something interesting for dinner. We had some amazing pasta with aged gouda and fresh mozzarella. So good. And Wisconsin has a lovely Italian sharp cheese that turned out to be really good.
Then I stocked up for the rest of the time we're in the US. We didn't love their 1-year and 4-year aged cheddars, but their 7-year aged cheddar was amazing. That was obviously the most expensive, so we got a smallish hunk of it.
And there's gorgonzola, brie, habenero jack, parmesan, gouda, kasseri, feta, and mozzarella. And butter. I think that's everything.
I suppose I'll have to blog again since the ice cream here just doesn't come close to what I could get in Wisconsin.
