On the way home from loading giant sacks of pellets into the truck while CB frollicked with a dozen fluffy barn kittens with eyes like sapphires, we found a DELI!
A EUROPEAN deli, with spicy calabrese, soprasetta, amazing proccutto, Mennonite salami, glorious looking goats milk cheeses… AUNGH! Damn! It was hard not to be greedy, grab everything and run away like a chubby thief in the NIGHT!
We very reservedly chose a long, dry salami that was rolled in a crust of peppercorns. And a 5 year old cheddar labelled “extreme”.
I made a tasty little plate of the cheddar and salami with some dill pickles, salty radishes, sour green apples drizzled with honey and two industrial sized rye & cokes with way too much ice.
A perfect summer meal. And when the plate was clean we trundled upstairs to have a nice warm late afternoon nap full of beautiful cheese dreams floating on a cloud of salami breath and roaring farts.
