Curse You, Nicky and Mike!
Published on Friday, June 1, 2012 by

You wonderful people may remember the 30-day photo challenge?  Well… SOME PEOPLE (Nicky and Mike) forgot how to WRITE (Nicky and Mike) during that time and SOME PEOPLE (Nicky and Mike) have thrown out a challenge.  NICKY AND MIKE.  (Said with my angry face.)

Pictures for a month?  Hard yet fakeable when need be.  But writing?  Every-Single-Day?!  CURSE YOU, NICKY AND MIKE.

(OK secretly I love them both and am completely up for the challenge.  So HERE WE GO… ONE POST A DAY FOR A MONTH!)

The first topic?  CHEESE.  DUHHHH!

I love sweets.  Chocolate.  Icecream.  Peachy raspberry cakey creamy desserts.  Hollah!  But during the week I am the epitome of eating right.  No junk.  No sweets.  All healthy stuff.

When the weekend comes, so do my well spaced out treats.  But I tell you what.  If given the option of something sweet or a piece of Gruyere cheese from Costo sided with pita chips, I will go for the cheese every-single-time.

There is something oh so wonderful about a good piece of nutty, dry, salty cheese paired with pita chips and an adult beverage.  On most days, I will take a big hunk of Gruyere over an ice-cream Sunday when it’s time for a sneaky treat.

So I have two questions.

  1. What is your downfall when you are allowing yourself a treat?
  2. Do you like cheese, and if so, what is your favorite kind?

  • It was really Mike’s idea and I just took the fall for it. Ok, no. It’s all my fault. But you’re playing and I love you for it!!

    Favourite cheese? Madame Chevre’s Blueberry Pomegranate. Without a doubt. It’s better than sex. Better than chocolate. Better than SHOES! 🙂

    Don’t forget to come by WWFC and link up your post so everyone can visit!

    • Better than sex? Better than shoes? Nicky, have you got your priorities right?

    • Wow, better than SHOES?. 😉

    • Nicky, holy cow you are causing quite the stir.  Better than SHOES and SEX?!!  What about sex while wearing your favorite spikes? 

  • 1) My favourite cheese is the adult beverage.
    2) Corona

  • My downfall is allowing myself a treat.

    Cheddar by far. But I’ll dabble in just about any cheese and be happy!

  • You’d be safe around me -cause I’d be all over the ice cream sundae!!!

  • I love cheese.  There are just too many to pick a favorite for me.  One I love is Petit Agour (from France made by Basque terrorists), but it’s is worth the risk of making those guys in berets rich.

  • Indeed, there are too many choices to have a favorite.  Most purchased would be cheddar and mozzarella.  We love Havarti for it’s creaminess, and of course, freshly grated Parmigiano-Reggiano (Parmesan).

    • OH YES… Parmesan!  I ADORE fresh mozzarella with basil and olive oil… it always means summer to me!

  • For me it’s Cotswold with a lovely glass of Voignier or even a cold Corona.  Now I’m off to post mine.

    • Jayne, I have never heard of Cotswold, and then I saw you mention it and Nicky write about it. I MUST GET SOME!

  • I can’t say that I have a favourite cheese – I like many and it would depend on what I feel like noshing on at the time.  But I love Gruyere, too.

    Oh, my downfall is ice cream, and not the air-puffed crap they call ice cream here in the U.S., oh, no. I like it dense and creamy, and I like lots of it, too. Sorry, heart ‘o mine.

    Yes, I do like cheese. Hard to pick a favorite, though. I like a sharp cheddar, many of the smoked ones, the blues, Swisses and Gouda. I basically like ’em all.

  • Haha! I somehow missed the title of this post. Hilarious!

    Oh and I have a serious weakness for Gruyere. I will eat that entire block 🙂

    My downfall is popcorn, made the old-fashioned way, in a covered pot and then with real melted butter drizzled on top.  
    And cheese – LOVE IT (*sings it out*)  Do I have to list a favorite?
