No holiday season is complete without those cheesy portraits that you put on your Christmas cards, right? We had originally talked about wearing ugly Christmas sweaters and actually going to a department store studio to take them but obviously that fell through. This is close enough, right?
Since I will be in LA from 12/22 to 1/15, BF and I are trying to squeeze in as much time together this week as we can. Yesterday we went to Tartine for morning buns and coffee then Bi-Rite to prepare for the beef stew that we were planning to make in the slow cooker. He had been trying to get reindeer meat for it but apparently they sold out! I've had venison but never reindeer so it would have been interesting to try.
We actually weren't able to eat the damn stew until 11pm since we started the day quite late so we had to improvise in between. I picked out this cheese, La Tur, made from goat's, cow's, and sheep's milk. Brent wasn't too happy with but I was pleased, it was nice and creamy with a tangy rich flavor. Oh well, more cheese for me.
