As aficionado of Artisan cheese I am thinking that the contest might be wanting to give that away.

Well made Double Gloucester is superb.

I am so impressed with both the KFC dinner in cake AND the knitted meals!

I will have to share the zombie proposal article with my coworker who is really into zombies. I bet she wouldn't mind a proposal like that. :-)

Hi Tracy,

I LOVE cheese of any description, with the possible exception of goats cheese, so to have won something so splendid as all that Double Gloucester, would be my idea of heaven.

I also love cake and icing so your article about the birthday cake was right up my street. I have sent the link to my niece, who really enjoys trying something new, but even she has never been quite this adventurous!

I am detecting quite a 'foodie' theme to your post this week, although I wasn't too impressed with the knitted food and meals ... Why? and What's The Point? I enjoy knitting but food!!!!

A post to make me smile and make me feel hungry ... Thanks!

Yvonne

Keeps me dumbfounded how you get these snippets each week.

Okay the knitted food is just totally weird. I mean it's very clever, but why?? Who wants a knitted lamb chop?

My mom would totally be down with winning the cheese. We think she was a mouse in a former life. ^-^
