Cheesy is the prompt for Thursday. I’ve already talked about toast, so that takes one of my thoughts straight away.

Just Jot It January is by Linda Hill (with help from her friends). You can jot something down for the prompt anywhere, any time, just post it on your blog before the end of the month (so it seems). You can read the full instructions here.

Cheesy – Jan 25th

This is linked back to Yven’s blog and to Linda’s post for the day.

It’s always disappointing when looking for cheesy pictures – except I hit the jackpot with this seasonal offering from Field And Flower. I might go back to order it next year. The cheeses pictured are Tunworth, ‘rich English Camembert’; Yarlington, a washed rind cheese…. washed in cider matured in whisky barrels (that’s the one bottom right); Montgomery, a British Cheddar (centre); Truffle Gloucester – with a layer of truffles…, and Cropwell Bishop, a wonderful blue-veined cheese.

One of the cheesy attractions of selling my books at craft fairs is meeting up with the wonderful Maxine, of Hedgerow Cheese, who brings along about eight to ten cheeses each time. She pre-cuts and wraps them for the fairs so you can buy a set amount of each at four for £20. She often has some of my favourites from my Norfolk days, like Beenleigh Blue and Wigmore. She also brought Ticklemore one day, which is a definite favourite – but the cheese man on the outside market at Romsey often has it too. If you’re in the UK, check out Hedgerow Cheese and place an order!

    Thanks for the very interesting information, Jemima! I never had thought that there are so many different kind of cheese produced in the country itself. Here in Germany it’s often the saying of missing food culture in the UK. 😉 Best wishes, Michael

    You make me think— I need to get out to the farmers markets and see what local cheeses I can find!

    I love cheese too! And toast, though I wouldn’t put anything other than cheddar on that. Cheese is what keeps me from being a vegan – shallow, I know.
