|THE cheese tent, the place to sample and buy cheese from local cheesemakers. Baked garlic (fried on a griddle), peppadew Havarti, and Roelli's Kingsley were some of my favorites.|

Cheese Days 2012 was a good one. I sold soap at a booming Farmer's Market in perfect weather, sampled my way through the cheese tent (twice), saw lots of friends, and even sang the Doxology to the Beer Barrel Polka at the church service on the Square. (You didn't even know that was possible, did you?)
As long as I'm on the party theme, here is one of my newly cured soaps. I made it with scrap soap diced into little chunks and a never-to-be-repeated fragrance blend, the dribbles and drops of five different fruity scents. I referrred to it as the "leftover" soap during its cure but it would hardly fly out the door with a name like that. My sister thought it looked like a party, so ta-da--Party Time.
