I got several comments and emails telling me I HAD to go to The Cheese Shoppe in old town Williamsburg for the best sandwich ever.
The shop in itself is adorable and you will want to browse and taste test your way past the cheeses on display.
There is also a large selection of local wines and other culinary treats to entice you.
I was working up a powerful appetite so I made my way back to the rear of the shop where a long lunch-time line had already formed…..
Long lines are a bad thing good thing ----
Bad, because you have to wait ----
GOOD – because if there is a line, it must be worth waiting in one!
Yes, THIS is the line…Mmmmm…it MUST be worth it!
I was told that I needed to experience the special “house dressing” on my sandwich –so I went for it! I ordered corned beef and pepper jack on pumpernickel with house dressing. MMMMMMMM! There is NO picture of the sandwich – I was too busy eating it!
I’m always one to try a “not so known to me” brand of chips ----These knocked my socks off!
I love nutty crunchy carmel-y things….and I didn’t quite know WHAT this conglomeration was, but oh boy --- I could have forgotten the sandwich and just went for this. It had a cookie bar bottom, then stuck to the carmel topping was crunched pretzels ((Oh yeah, that beloved salty-sweet sensation!)) chocolate chips, peanuts…….messy, gooey and oh so good! Does anyone have a recipe for this kind of cookie bar? Maybe I better not have one!
And just so you don’t think that all I do is post about junk food ----oh, the gardens are WONDERFUL to behold….
Tomorrow classes begin! Talkin’ Turkey is first up! I better go get some shut eye ----morning comes early and quilters will be raring to go!
