Another Memorial Day has passed, and I am still struggling to transition back to normal life. We had a weekend where we literally did nothing after Friday, up until Tuesday morning when it was time to work. Our party on Friday was a hit and a lot of fun. It was nice to meet everyone and be able to kickoff the weekend on a fun note. I lessened the food when we got the final number of people who were attending, and still had too much, of course, of some things while others flew off the plates.
To my surprise, hardly any of the cheese was touched. I know that people usually don't want to be the first to eat, which is fine and since I have a strong love for cheese, I didnt mind it as leftovers!
I cut up some cabot hot habanero, cheddar and colby, paired with a garlic/herb soft cheese and served with wheat thins, everything flatbreads and grapes.
I also made a pastry wrapped baked brie. I bought the premade pastry rounds that you find in the refridgerated cookie dough isle, covered the wheel of brie completely and baked at 320 for about 30 minutes.
