I'm impressed, Larry! I'm not home right now either, but I don't have as good a memory as you do, so I can't play! I'll try to remember to add my list when we get home Sunday.

I do know I have Parmigiano Reggiano, rosemary Asiago, Monterey Jack, cheddar, feta, Gruyére, Havarti, and Fontina. (And Velveeta and American slices ). And I have Parm rinds in the freezer.

I can only do this with food. I can tell you just about every thing I ever ate ate any restaurant in my adult life, especially if it were while i was on vacation, but i can remember where my keys are, my wallet is , what day of the week it is ...

larry, I'm right there with ya! Fridge, pantry, food shelves in basement...doesn't matter, I can "draw" a verbal map for Himself every time I need something. Now if the dear man could just follow directions..."No, dear, it's your OTHER left side!" But if I set my glasses down for a minute? Sometimes I have to put my contact lenses in so I can find my glasses...


I checked what we have. Basically, we have enough to constipate a small, 3rd-world country. Some of these are full containers or uncut chunks of cheese. A few are just big enough for one of us to have a little snack with a few crackers and a piece of fruit. My list:

3 pints of cottage cheese
1 quart Ricotta cheese
Various Amish cheeses from our OH trip:
---Guggisburg Baby Swiss
---Walnut Creek Baby Swiss, mild Cheddar, Farmer's, Brick, Colby, lacy Swiss
Feta
Havarti
Emmental
Gruyere
Manchego
Fontina
Smoked Gouda
Old Croc sharp Cheddar
Jarlsburg
Pecorino Romano
Parmigiano-Reggiano
Various 1/2# "bricks" of cheap cheddars, monteray jack, muenster, co-jack for grating into sauces
3 or 4 1/2# bricks of Neufchatel
the ubiquitous deli bag of sliced Land-of-Lakes or Cabot American cheese

Good lord! I seem to have become a cheese hoarder.

Well if it is any help, I don't. My mother had a junk drawer. She would tell me to find a certain item in that drawer. Of course I never could. She would tell me it is on the right hand side, under the whatever. And if she had to get up, I was going to get a whack across the back on my head.
