Say Cheese!

Feeling cheesy?  I know I am. Always!  Well, channel your inner cheesehead, because we're talking cheese all week long here! 
Have you ever wanted to make your own cheese?  Fresh fromage?  Quick queso?  Well, now's your chance...don't be shy!  How to Cook Everything Vegetarian has some super simple, basic recipes for making fresh cheese (think ricotta or cottage cheese...even a method for brining your fresh cheese).  If that's one you don't have and can't pick up from the library, I'd be glad to email you one of the simple recipes...just leave a comment w/ your email address. 
(This is fresh cheese curd that I made a while back...if you do decide to make a fresh cheese, you can link it up over at Forging Fromage, as well!)
But of course we're not requiring you to make your own cheese (although personally, I totally encourage it) so if you'd rather dive into the world of ooey, gooey cheesy macaroni...or homemade cheese crackers...or cheesy potatoes...or cheesy bread...anything that features cheese as a main ingredient (remember, cheese is queen this week)...then by all means, make that!!
A staple at our turkey day table!
Alrighty then friends...get your cheese on!

britishcheese.com's illustration...love it!

Make and post your Say Cheese! recipe by Sunday, September 19th. Don't forget to link your post of the week's with Mr. Linky below, so we can all enjoy your fabulous creation! Remember to leave a comment
after, each week that you use Mr. Linky to link your post, just to be sure we don't miss anyone.
