Happy Belated Anniversary to us! It’s been a while since I updated, but today I was thinking about our our anniversary trip to the Sonoma Coast. It was a beautiful weekend with gorgeous scenery and a delicious end to the trip — on the way back to Oakland we went to a bread shop called Wild Flour Bakery. They had a backyard garden we walked through and the store itself smelled miraculous.
When we got to the register we decided to get a whole wheat loaf and a rosemary garlic loaf. This turned out to be a wise decision because it made our ride home smell like roasted garlic the whole way. We asked one of the employees where we could find a cheese shop in the area. He responded with “there is a cheese store down the street.” I mean, could it be more perfect?
Not half a mile down the road was Freestone Artisan Cheese. We were greeted by a beaming 13 year old boy who asked if we needed some help. We told him we wanted a soft cheese and a hard cheese and he walked us through different types they had in stock; cows milk, goats milk, aged, creamy, hard, salty, sweet. He was very impressive and seemed very passionate about cheese, so I obviously admired the little guy.
Check out the lovely spread we enjoyed when we got home!
