Pass the cheese, please

Sometimes a gal just needs a cheese plate.  A vegan cheese plate, that is.

I'm pretty smitten with Dr Cow tree nut cheese.  It's tangy and creamy and delightful.  And it's hand-crafted from REAL food and isn't colored bright orange.  It's everything I love about cheese [without all the cows constantly kept pregnant and infected udders and such].  Hooray!
This is the aged cashew cheese with organic grapes and Back to Nature harvest whole wheat crackers (like Triscuits).  

There's something about a cheese platter that makes me feel like I'm at a party or a spa.  Not that I've really ever even been to a spa...  But I assume there would be cheese platters there.  I even got out my little party knives that have little poinsettias on them and settled in with my tea and a sudoku puzzle for my party of one.  I felt pretty pampered this morning.

Now I've got my bread rising and I'm wondering what I should make with all this rhubarb I've got out in the garden.  Rhubarb lemonade?  Rhubarb jelly?  Rhubarb cake?

Where do you find the Dr Cow cheese? Does your co-op carry it?! I would love to try it!

PS I say go for a rhubarb cake with this cool dreary weather we are having...save the rhubarb lemonade for when it warms back up (hopefully soon!)!

I am wondering the same thing as Courtney. Did you find it around here? Or did you use the internet?

I would have to agree with the rhubarb cake. My favorite is rhubarb coffee cake. MMM.

Sadly, I did not get it at the Co-op. I got it off the internets. Perhaps we can start a petition to get MM to carry it?

If you promise to buy some, I'll beg our buyers to consider it!

Some blogger just made a rockin' good looking rhubarb cake who was it? I'm totally blanking!

Um hello, strawberry-rhubarb pie? (P.S. your comment on my blog made me laugh out loud!)

Rhubarb lemonade! I love your "healthy" triscuit type crackers. Very decadent indeed.

I've only just discovered your blog, and already I'm hooked! I can't wait to try that cheese either.
