Oy....somebody at Shakesville has come up with a pasta dish with goat cheese to soothe our battered spirits, etc. or something like that.
Problem is, I don't like goat cheese even a little bit. The only goat cheese I ever ate that I loved (and which I ate because I didn't KNOW what it was) was something a wine merchant in Ravello served last summer. I loved it because it absolutely did NOT TASTE REMOTELY LIKE GOAT CHEESE.
Goat cheese to me tastes like...well...GOAT.
Every time I try to eat it, i remember the old billy goat in the Bismarck zoo.
If you got near him, you could smell him for WEEKS. Whatever creates goat scent got right into your nose hairs and stayed there. For a long time. GACK!!!
I think goat cheese smells and tastes like CAMEL BUTT. Peeeyoo!!!!
So save the goat cheese recipes, ok? Martha Stewart has gone hog wild with these recipes lately. She's also into "southern" turkey. I don't want to eat turkey that's been basted with brown sugar, ok? Martha and people like Paula Deen and Emeril can get together and ruin everything if they want, but don't ask me to follow their recipes. Food used to be a fun magazine. Now it just makes me queasy.
