friday favourite – my new cheese board

I love cheese. Love locally produced cheese is even better. Some of my new favourites are Five Brothers from Gunns Hill, Baby Swiss from Stonetown Cheese and I will always cross the street for manchego.

The Dairy Farmers of Canada had a cool promo on before the holidays – giving away a maple wood cheese board in the shape of Canada if you sent in a photo showing five cheeses bought with the Canadian milk symbol. That was easy.

And this week – my new #CanadianCheese board arrived. I’ll be testing it out this weekend. It’s going to look even better when there is a slab of two-year-old Thornloe cheddar sitting on Saskatchewan, Woolwich goat cheese taking over Quebec and some olives all over the country.

Thank you dairy cows for making delicious milk!

friday favourite – chocolate milk

It used to be a novelty in our house. No name chocolate powder added to a big glass of milk alongside a grilled cheese sandwich. After blowing bubbles in the glass to the almost spilling point, you’d slurp it down…only to find much of the chocolate powder out of suspension in the bottom of the glass.

Reminds me of the final view in my mug of French press coffee – the good strong sludge that settles at the bottom!

Anyhow, chocolate milk is back on our grocery list and in our fridge. It’s got all the perfect ingredients for a Friday favourite. Refreshing (check). Made with 1% milk (check). Filling appetizer before dinner (check). Great natural source of bone-strengthening calcium (check). Delicious (check).

Cheers to the brown cow!
