Hot afternoon

It was just too hot to do  anything but sit in the shade, so that is exactly what we did.    We sampled two of our cheeses.  When you make cheese yourself it is always exciting to see what the taste will be. The Asiago, was especially good.  It was nice to serve them in our copper silver fusion leaf bowls with our own cocktail picks.
