Today was so beautiful that we played tennis all afternoon. Today, it’s @LadyDucks’s fault that I’m flying high from my extra huge martooni. . Here’s cheers and bottoms up, Anna. We will soon get together and enjoy our martinis together in person. Hope your Friday date night was superb! Thank you Marie @Tampa_girl7 for your beautiful card. It made me tear up and I love it. Back to the Spanish cheese. I bought 3 varieties for Friday date night: Manchego, Queso de Cabra, and Iberico. Ick! I’m not a fan. Hubs would not touch them. I guess we will have a very cheesy macaroni and cheese dish tomorrow. Anyway, I am a bit too happy tonight. I shall see you all ASPCA or ASAP.

are you using the cheese you both don't like for your dish tomorrow?

I will use one mixed in with many others. I'm making an adult Mac and cheese dish tomorrow.

Thank you! Hubs is watching The Blacklist right now. I decided I can't stand it anymore. I like brie and truffle cheese. I shouldn't judge the Spanish cheeses, since I only had one of the three. I was flying before, but I think I have settled down after putting food in my stomach.. That's why hubs is so stingy with the martoonis for me.

@DianneN How did your mac and cheese turn out with those cheeses? I hate spending money on food that we end up not liking after the first taste - but it happens. You are too funny . I can't drink on an empty stomach!!

Thanks for mentioning Dianne, I had an excellent Martini night and I am sure you too. The only one I like is the Queso Manchego and only one specific brand, I do not like the others two.

I'm happy you had a nice martini night, too. I tried the Manchego. It was okay. I still love Brie the most with a martini.

@DianneN Brie and Camembert are the kind of cheese I cannot eat, but I did last Tuesday night and I am still sick today.

They aren't smelly, just not tasty except for the manchego. It was okay. They went well grated into my macaroni and cheese.

Yes, you are flying a little high. I'm glad you had a good game(s) of tennis. That should be interesting macaroni and cheese.

So neither of you liked any of those three? What makes you think they'll work in mac n cheese then? Maybe with some spicy seasoning.

I like the Manchego when I tried it. I've had those cheeses in Spain and S. America, but they weren't as good as I remembered. lol I grated them and mixed them in with many other cheeses and other things including jalapenos. Delish!
