Michelle and I just went to visit the student cheese shop (upstairs) and meat shop (downstairs) on St. Paul campus at the Department of Animal Science. The students in the programs get to learn how to make cheese and they staff the little store, too. Likewise for the meat shop: they grow the animals and learn the different cuts and such. I got a good chunk of smoked gouda and some colby jack for about $3.50! I am pleased. Next time I go I am definitely taking a camera. I wish I had a way to transfer the smell of the meat shop across the internet. Stinky!
I am eating cheese for dinner then!
