Our sons girlfriend just returned from vacation in Italy. She came over the other night and surprised us with a goodie bag of treats from her trip. In the bag was a wedge of PARMIGIANO-REGGIANO,
I wanted to save the cheese forever and never open it, I wanted to the cherish this fine gift of Italian cheese. At least for a few days longer than two.
Today my idea of forever saving the cheese ended at lunch.
We had *linner and made our simple throw on the BBQ tortilla pizzas with sundried-tomato bruchetta, & Panchetta. Self I thought, "the Parmesan sure would be fantastic grated on this pizza". So out of the fridge it came, I opened the package and cut off a hunk. My self-control went out the window. Who saves cheese forever anyways?
Instead I ate the Parmesan cheese in hunks. Yum, It was divine, slightly salty, crusty smooth and buttery all at the same time.
Skip the pizza, eat the cheese. Cheese glorious cheese, what is it about you?
Thank you Kylie for the goodie bag of treats, I LOVE it all. Someday I'm going to visit Italy for myself and experience their beautiful culture, country side, wine and FOOD.
*Linner- to late for lunch to early for dinner.
