Cheesy Party Crasher (Special Wednesday post)

This past weekend, my family crashed a party hosted by some folks from Tillamook cheese; but we were invited, so it was OK.

The invitation came on Saturday when we went to visit the folks from Tillamook who were giving out free samples in front of a local grocery store as part of their "Loaf Love" tour.  As soon as we walked up, and they saw my son's "Loaf Love" t-shirt, they got all excited.  (The shirt he won when he submitted a photo taken of himself the last time the tour came to town, and won a photo contest.)

My son, you see, loves cheese.  And for some reason, he has a strong preference for Tillamook.  When the folks at the tour saw what a big fan he is, they invited us to a party the following day, which the Loaf Love Tour folks were hosting for some "mom bloggers" in Orange County. 

So we stopped by.  They fed us some yummy grilled cheese sandwiches, and I promised that even though I'm not a "mom blogger," that I'd mention them here at

Your son has good taste. I love Tillamook cheese.

If you haven't already, you should make a trip up the Oregon coast to Tillamook and tour their factory. And they have an ice cream shop, too!

And if that doesn't sate him, there are one or two other cheese places in town.

Oh, yes, it's his life ambition to make it to Tillamook Oregon someday. And I think they sell Tillamook ice cream at Winco stores, but there isn't one near us.
