The year I won a year's supply of cheese
I started a little journal about what I did with the year's supply of (Cabot) cheese that I won in a contest. And then COVID hit and I forgot to finish it. I finally did. 🧀

Well that was delightful! (I haven't clicked into the AMA yet, so I have still more to enjoy later.) (Much like your year of cheese.)

I especially enjoyed your captions on the photos, which reminds me how web accessibility guidelines have made people more conscientious about using captions and alt text, and has made some people write really good ones - so thanks for the delightful captions!

I really enjoyed this. Thanks for writing it, and for sharing it here on Projects!

You're welcome. You know, I started writing that essay before Medium even HAD alt text which is 1) why it has captions and 2) a damning indictment of how long it took them to add that feature.

Charming. Thank you for sharing. Now I, too, would like some cheese!

I had no idea that horseradish cheese was a thing!
Off to order some from a UK supplier now.

Lovely read!

By which I meant -- you shared so much! Of course you did.

My mom wants to know - do you eat more cheese now? Or less cheese now?

I'm basically back to mostly string cheese but I do occasionally put shreddies on like frozen pizzas or garden burgers just to toss a bit more protein into them.

I'm glad to see this update! I follow you on Twitter so I remember hearing about the cheese. My cheese drawer has been an essential Covid-era survival tool so 100 lbs. sounds like a dream!

The minute I saw it was Cabot I guessed that you'd be the winner. Cheese tipping FTW.
