June is Dairy Month!

What better time could there be eat some fresh, squeeky cheese curds, to visit some cheese blogs (neatly compiled in my new¬†”Cheese Links” section), or¬†to salute¬† my favorite Wisconsin roadside attraction,¬†Mar’s Cheese Castle – that beautiful landmark/cheese store that lets the driver on I-94 know that he or she is finally in Wisconsin.¬† Mar’s is the city-person’s resource for squeeky¬†curds¬†and other edible¬†novelties.¬†(And you may not know this, but you can stop there to eat lunch, too.¬† They make a mean grilled¬†ham and cheese.)

Not to be forgotten is the fact that¬†June starts the reign of this year’s¬†new “Alice in Diaryland,”¬†the Wisconsin State¬†dairy industry marketing representative who serves a one-year term performing traveling dairy education and service.¬†¬†¬†

Or, to keep your dairy month celebration more refined and¬†mellow, just pour yourself a glass of your favorite fermented grapes paired up with¬†your favorite fermented dairy.¬† That’s right, I’m talking about the food of the gods – wine and cheese.¬†¬†
