I'm so excited...and I just can't hide it

I just got off the phone with Jessica at Sweet Grass Dairy in Thomasville, Georgia. I ordered a mountain of cheese, glorious local cheese, which is due to arrive on my doorstep, ice-packed, on Wednesday's UPS truck.

I selected a half pound of Georgia Gouda, a half pound of a cheese called Lucille (not on the Web site--supposed to be a very nutty, mushroomy sort of goat Parmesan), and one wheel of Green Hill (which looks appealingly Brie-like). My only disappointment is that I couldn't get chevre because in the August heat, she would have had to send it overnight. The cost was exorbitant and I couldn't justify it--although I was tempted.
