      Good cheese for me is one of life’s simple pleasures. Now add fine beverages to compliment the cheese and one has a taste of heaven on earth. I would love a taste of heaven this weekend in Portland! For me it’s been a weary week. Maybe it’s partly because of the Harvest Moon? Whatever the case, a harvest of great cheese sounds like a good remedy!

I’d love to attend the cheese festival not only to satisfy my love of cheese but to purchase an array of cheeses to pair with my (many) lovely Oregon apples!
