Aunt Bea and I each have a recipe novel ('cuz they aren't laid out in recipe format ) that has an entry for "The Cheese Crock". The book predates Alton and it's quite a bit different. Seems like it works on the premise of a sourdough starter: you make a base pot of cheese, then as you use some up you add more to it. Except the add-ins for the cheese crock are nowhere near as structured as for bread. You start with a pound of sharp cheddar and a brick of cream cheese - 24 oz. of cheese always sounded like so much to me. I think I'll mix up a much smaller batch when it's cooler weather and see how it goes. We're more into nibbling when it gets cold.

Do you like any blue cheeses?
I don't but DH does. He has to get his fix on his own

I ended up making the cheese spread and toasting some baguette slices and topped that with diced tomatoes. I also made pesto pasta and threw in some leftover roasted chicken and more diced tomatoes. I was just running out of energy at the end of the day.

We had grilled 2" thick cut pork chops, acorn squash, roasted potatoes, and calabrese salad.
