Stinky Cheese Basket

There is a basket at Giant Eagle Marketplace (the new Supastoe) that has the ends of blocks of expensive cheese that they have used to chop into larger pieces or in recipes.  These are incredibly reasonable and it gives you the opportunity to try cheeses you would not want to spend a lot of money on if you didn't like them.  I like to put them on a cutting board or cheese plate with crackers when I am drinking wine (which is more often than I will ever admit to).  Snazz it up with apple slices, marmalade, and grapes when you have friends over before going out and you will look very together when you look down and realize that you are still wearing your "house shoes".  Try it out and let me know if it works!
