Anyone who knows us knows that we love cheese. Most nights Alex would be perfectly content to eat cheese and salumi for dinner but, thankfully, we do have other people at the table to consider, so there is a usually a vegetable or two and some bread alongside the cheese and charcuterie. One of the great things about our new location is that I can order cheese from Jasper Hill Farm and, because we live in New England, it ships for free. Last fall when they sent out an email saying they were starting a cheese club and I could get a discount if I signed up immediately, it was a no-brainer. I signed up. It was just in time for some holiday entertaining.
It's a bitter cold day and I was feeling a little droopy. Then the doorbell rang and it was UPS with my cheese delivery. Such a cool surprise (though most people are probably more organized about receiving perishables), it made my day. Every package comes with three cheeses and some literature describing them. You never know exactly what will arrive but I always know it will be something good. It's the little things that make each special. Today my favorite thing is cheese.
Disclaimer: This is not a sponsored post. We've never met anyone from Jasper Hill and we will not receive anything if you order from them or sign up for the club. We just love their cheese.
