Say Cheese!!

Every couple of months I put in a BIG order with the “cheese lady”, Pam Otto of Prairie Dairy in Owatonna, Minnesota.

Veggie and Olive Cream CheeseAll of the cheeses we’ve had are good.  Not pictured in our order was the cheese curds…all of the varieties because they too are excellent.

They are a family run business from near my old stomping grounds.  The cheeses are so good and the prices very reasonable.  I load up every couple months.  We often take a cheese tray when we go to friends plus we eat cheese on most everything.  Neither Hubby or I are milk drinkers so cheese is a way we get in some dairy.

Each time I order it seems Pam has come up with something new.  This time around it was cream cheese.  The Olive Cream Cheese is hands down amazing.  I’ve had to have little talks with myself saying “Step away from the cream cheese.  Step away from the cream cheese.”  It’s just that good!!

Pam does great gift boxes too!!

I have kids coming home for the weekend and you can bet I’ll have a cheese tray ready to serve.

If you’re interested here’s Pam’s email…prairiedairy55060@yahoo.com.  Tell her the crazy lady in Iowa sent you!!

    I need to know what is in the cream cheese and olives. Just the two items? The reason I ask is there is a local Cuban restaurant here that makes olive butter. It is amazingly good. Simply green olives chopped fine and added to whipped butter (not margarine). I will soften some cream cheese tonight and add some olives and see what it is like. If there is anything in it besides the two ingredients please let me know. I know fresh cream cheese is far superior to the store kind but that is where I live. :)

    Your quilt top is beautiful! You almost have me talked into trying a double wedding ring someday. Where is your old stomping grounds? My hubby is from Kenyon. I was surprised to see you mention Owatonna! I don’t comment often, but I love your blog & read it religiously! You offer so much–quilting inspiration, book reviews, recipes…Thanks.

    I’m always looking for unusual cheeses. Do they have a website or do you just email Pam directly?
