|Pretend this Lipault suitcase is navy blue, like mine. It’s almost completely packed for my departure.|
Early tomorrow morning, I’m heading out. No more rehab. It’s over. It was wonderful while it lasted and I fully realize how lucky I am to have been able to be here.
|One of my absolute favorite cheeses.|
Before I leave I thought I would tell you about a few of the other cheeses I’ve eaten while in my medi-spa. I was also thinking, I hope this isn’t boring for you. I can’t think of a controversy that involves a conversation around fromage. Connoisseurs might argue about some in the same way some would about wine, but that is beyond my purview. I do like Beaufort better than any of the hard cheeses like tomme, Gruyere, Emmenthal and others of that genre. It has more character. Unfortunately there was no Beaufort on offer during my stay.
Proving that the French are not necessarily chauvinistic about their fromages, Gouda and Edam were included on the menus.
|Tomme de Savoie|
|Bûche de chèvre — can anyone ever get enough of this?|
The entire time in my rehab spa, my menus were hyper-protein. The dietician worked out a regime for me and luckily cheese is protein. As you know from the entrées there were always lots of vegetables and usually desserts were yogurt and fruit. I’ll let you know if the diet worked.
