I went grocery shopping a while ago. This is one of my favorite stops. I may have overbought, but I had Alton Brown's Fromage Fort in mind I got chunks of Asiago, baby Swiss and habañero Monterey Jack.

I like that basket, GG. It must be nice to pick through a selection of different cheeses so you can sample, but not buy so much that you are in trouble if you end up not really liking it. Besides, that looks like you took it in a fromagerie. So then, samples. Love samples!

We didn't sample anything from this wall of heat. Stopped in an upscale beverage store to check for something, and ran into this sight. Took the picture just to send to our son, a hot sauce fiend. Too bad he lives over 600 from this store - we would have fun watching HIM have fun! Oh, besides all of these hot sauces, there were two other walls filled with BBQ sauces, and mustards, and all kind of fun.

My wife's family farm. Farmed continuously by her family since 1913 when her great grandfather built the barn (that was the first building erected because the stock was more important than the people). The house, grain elevator, and other outbuildings came over the next 2-3 years. I did some processing to create the antique look.
