Saturday Night Chez Sheena

Landing in Toronto right on time Friday night, Sheena jumped into her awaiting chariot and hightailed it down to the Crooked Star, to pick up her sweet little Saddam who had been sitting patiently all by himself since Wednesday night's Raymi Art Wrap Party.

Next stop was one of Sheena's sorely missed Happy Places in Toronto... the Cheese Boutique It had been wa-a-a-a-y too long. After wiping her bodily fluids off the glass window of the Quebec Cheese cupboard, she settled on the staples: Bouq Emissaire, Benedictine Bleu, the house paté... and a new one - the Normandy Mimolette The Mimolette was extra orange, extra hard, almost like an aged Parmeggiano... Cheese Boutique ages it for an extra 4 years on its own premises. (Yes, I always stick my head inside the aging cellar....)

AND! Quince paste is available at the cheese counter. Yay! Not quite as tart and pungent as the one Sheena got engaged to at Harrod's last fall, but it made for lovely company paired with the Benedictin Bleu and those yummy little fruit/nut crackery biscotti only ever found at the C.B.

Also an excuse to think about my dear friend The Cheek as I cracked open her thoughtfully gifted Marcona Almonds and finally christened my Atlanta smuggled Crate and Barrel Slate Cheese boards....

Though sans chalk. FCS.

You're tempting me to jog over to the Cheese Boutique. (No, I'm insane, I know, but not THAT insane.)

Sounds like a wicked fun time !

Even Saddam seems to approve ---

if his painting had a caption , it might say :

'Yeah BABY , you numba wun .'
