Before I met my husband, I could only rattle off a handful of different types of cheese. And I wasn't keen to broaden my choices beyond the standard cheddar, jack and swiss back then.
Since I've known P, every week he brings home a variety of cheese (courtesy of Trader Joe's), Gouda, Fontina, Camembert--it's astouding how much cheese is out there! Comté is my all time fav. I went through hunks of the stuff last time I was in France. I love the tradition of bringing out cheese and a baguette after each meal, something my husband continues to do to this day. To my husband and his family, it's not a meal if it doesn't include cheese and bread (and wine, of course). Unfortunately, it's something I can't indulge in every meal. But in Paris, it's going to be tough to hold back!
And my all time favorite dish to satifsfy my sweet tooth? Crepes. I can taste those warm crepes smothered in chocolate now. Looking at this picture last night at 11 pm on Flickr possessed me devour a few spoonfuls of Nutella. (By the way, I will never convince my hubby that Nutella is junk food.)
