I want goat cheese

As you know by now, I have an obsession with goat cheese.  Unfortunately for me-but good for the goats- many of my favorite cheesemakers let their goats take time off during the winter while they carry their kids.  I know that winter has hardly started yet, but I'm already missing one of my favorite cheeses.

Roasted garlic chevre from Rollingstone Chevre in Idaho. This cheese combines two of my favorite things: creamy, tangy, milky goat cheese and sweet roasted garlic.  Not only is there a garlic clove on top of the cheese, but it's also blended into the chevre giving it a mild-yet lasting- flavor.  the cheese is wrapped in a grape leaf and makes a delightful little cheese present.

This cheese is great to eat with a few crackers, when spread on a bagel or to cook with.  I love using it in macaroni and cheese, crumbling it on top of pizza or turning it into a garlicky, goaty sauce for pasta.  If you can get your hands on some, please do, it's divine!

Chevre in mac and cheese?!? I'm gonna have to try this one. Sounds good _and_ easy!

I'm glad you are back to work :-). This is my first visit to your blog and I've spent some time playing catch-up. I'm glad I did that. I find your honesty and observations engaging and I'll be back often. I hope you have a great day. Blessings...Mary
