If today is Tuesday it must time for 3 or More Tuesday over at The Gypsy's Corner.
The instructions to join in are over there but please do leave a comment here before you go.
This 3 or more post is part of the road trip from Saturday. One of my coffee buddies and I started out that day to get some fresh berries from a farm and ended up going to an area called Harrison Hot Springs. Our group often heads out here on our road trips because there is a variety of things to do and see here.

They make such a great variety of cows milk and goats milk cheeses here. Plus we always have a gelato before we leave. They had a framed picture of the Cow of the Month last time I was there but I guess the goats complained because I didn't see one this time.
Descriptions taken from the Farmhouse website:
FARM HOUSE CAMEMBERT
Just like in France: a natural mould-ripened favourite. Smooth creamy interior with a white bloomy crust. Pronounced truffle taste.
A fresh cream cheese made from whole dairy milk and an aromatic European culture, giving it a lemony freshness. Wonderful plain, or in spreads and baking. Available bulk in tubs, or as Spiced cheeses in a 3” round, table-ready.
FARM HOUSE GOUDA
A real old-fashioned farm house Gouda, with a slight sweetness. Also made with the addition of herbs, cumin seed, or chilis.
Camembert & Garlic Herb Fromage Frais.
Okay this is where I have to come clean....do you know what I ate some of these beautiful cheeses with when I got home?
This looks great right? But what is missing? I didn't have the nerve to put them in the photograph. I had no artisan breads. I ate them (sniffle) with Ritz crackers. I know! All this fresh beautiful food and I only had Ritz crackers. Hanging my head in shame.
The spoon has a delicious spread of Blood Orange Campari Vanilla jam and I had Ritz crackers.
