I was strolling through the Whole Foods market when this wheel of Parmigiano-Reggiano display caught my eye. Oh yeah, the “on-sale” sign too!

Right behind the Parmigiano-Reggiano Display wheel is an enormous wall of cheeses from around the world, I mean that literally! There are cheeses from all over the world, and I’m planning on trying a few of them in the very near future.

The most amazing moment was watching the process of opening an eighty-pound Parmigiano-Reggiano cheese wheel.

It turns out, this is a pretty big undertaking, and definitely takes some time to complete. Once that wheel is cracked open, it’s pretty awesome! I bought myself a couple of big wedges. When I returned home from the store, I placed one in the freezer and one in the frig. I think it’s going to be a pasta night!

Santiago’s Bodega

Courtney took me for lunch at a wonderful place I’d been dying to try, Santiago’s Bodega. This quaint little eatery specializes in Tapas. An amazing variety of small bites that you would normally get at an upscale restaurant. Inside, the atmosphere has what I consider to be an eclectic decor. Outside, the view reminds me of a Parisian bistro. We went a little crazy with the Tapas. Let me show you. Visit them at http://www.santiagosbodega.com

It was just time I treated myself to something I’d been wanting. I think I deserved a new toy. When I saw this, I knew this baby was coming home with me. It browns, it steams, it braises, and finally it slow cooks. This 7-quart All-Clad Slow Cooker is going to make life so much easier. I hope you’ll keep stopping by to see what I’m going to be cooking up in my new amazing slow cooker!
