Per usual, the day-of was jam-packed with errand-running.
But first up was having a good, solid breakfast to power us through the day:
Donuts while pumping gas
Next up (and most importantly!) was a trip to Cheese Plus for our most essential goods.
Because of that, I did not waste a precious second of mindblowing-cheese-consumption-time to snap any photos, but rather can share with you the stage being set for the evening's event...
everyone labels with cheese name, animal and origin
cheese bringer is concealed
soon-to-be-filled cheese boards eagerly awaiting competition entries
prize bottle of Veuve for the "Best in Cheese"
Halfway through Course Two, however, I hit a plateau where I was able to take a break from cheese-eating to snap a shot of the crew in action:
People were pleased.
As people finished their fondue and we prepped for Course Three (a cheesecake of course!), we had our guests vote on our "Best in Cheese". The cheese that won, however, was not the Truffle Triple Cream or the Cave-Aged Alpine Varietal, but rather the Queso. :)
After the night was through we were sure we had seen enough cheese until next year, but amazingly by 12pm the next day, we were ready for some leftovers.
