Lazy Lady

Yes it would have been even better if I could have enjoyed this cocktail hour with a friend but alas I was alone and that may not have been a bad thing entirely! You see not only did I get to enjoy the solitude with the warm, sweet country air but I also had the cheese to myself, no wait, this could be a dangerous thing because this cheese was out of this world!!! The whole experience of purchasing it to consumption was out of a foodies fantasy. There I was at my local organic farm which is nestled in an idyllic village in lush green Vermont. After grabbing a few items for meal times, abundant kale, just picked down the road blueberries, happy healthy eggs from happy healthy chickens I surveyed the assortment of cheeses also made from just down the road at the “Lazy Lady Farm”.

Kids love them, they are awesome with a cocktail, both nutritious and so delicious.
