Only a Real Man...

...can tell, with one glance into his woman's eyes, that she's smack dab in the middle of a full-blown food-gasm.

Okay.

So it was only goat cheese.

Goat cheese on toasted pumpernickel. Black Russian rye.


But oh my Lord! WHAT a goat cheese.

It was like a cross between cream cheese and feta. Smooth as all get-out, creamy as can be. But with this slightly sharp after bite...

I was dancing around the kitchen, eyes cast towards the heavens, humming deep in my throat, mmm! mmm! mmmmm!!! Was there more? He'd only got a small bit, at some astronomical price. Just to see what it might do to me.

When we ladies are very lucky, here's another thing that Real Man may do. He may simply watch us. Learn about the things that can trigger that response, then bring us small offerings of exquisite taste.

It's a bit like some beautiful male birds, in courtship, who bring food to the female bird of their desires. They want her to see that they pay attention to her needs, and to her wants as well. That they're both true lovers and true providers to her as a prospective mate-for-life, to the family they both hope to build, even just a family of two...

He'd already offered me the rest of one half the chunk of cheese on his plate. He was looking deep into my eyes and grinning, all satisfied with himself. As well he should be.

And then he told me there was a another piece just as big, back in the fridge, and if I wanted it, I was welcome to have it all.

ohhhhhhh...!!!

Hey, have you ever tried goat cheese with honey and truffle oil?

And fresh French bread and sliced apples or pears on the side?

Be forewarned, you don't want to do it too often. Once a year or so. New Years' Eve, perhaps. Hey, I've just planned my hors d'oeurve...

Pretty Lady's just about to start a run on truffle oil and french bread...

It's a good man that knows what makes a woman REALLY happy.

Hummm... 'food-gasm', I alwasys wondered what that look on her face was called.

You are funny. I do enjoy gaot cheese, but I enjoy most any cheese

*sigh* Wouldn't it be nice if cloning was ready available?

Now, that is true love!

True love, indeed! What a guy! Then there's cheddar that's been aged maybe 10 years -- found that in Canada once. Mmmmm.

k! I have been On Vacation. I require an assurance that you are Okay.

Pretty Lady, I don't want to shock you. However: among the tastes I haven't tried are truffles. Or any of their derivatives.

I did notice that immediately after reading your comment, I had a mental flash of the pineapple I've been feasting upon, which happened to be one of the best I've ever eaten. Simply the luck of the draw, of course. And how extremely fine the cheese would have been with it!

The cheese that is entirely gone.

But! I know where to get some more.

Mmmm...a little menu planning here...

Well! I'm extremely pleased with all of you, and your excellent taste! Gentlemen, who obviously are the Real Men in question. Ladies, who are the Real Ladies who truly appreciate those Good Men.

I am blessed.

And hungry too.
