Brought to you by Kerrygold Irish Dubliner Cheese......

Last week's grocery store blog post included a rant about my inability to find "my goddamn Irish Dubliner cheese." The next day, I get an email from Molly O'Loughlin from Kerrygold, makers of Irish Dubliner Cheese, saying that they don't want me to be without my Kerrygold Irish Dubliner Cheese and can they please send me some? And I'm like "Bring it on!" and "Yummy!" and "Thank you Irish Jesus!" And then I'm thinking "Molly O'Loughlin, is that your real name?" I bet when you get hired at Kerrygold, makers of Irish Dubliner Cheese, they make you choose your Irish name. You know, like your communion name or your bowling name (mine is alternately Jeannie or Lola. That's my bowling name, not my communion name. Lutherans are far too modest to align themselves with saints. Plus, the name you have is perfectly fine. Don't be so greedy).

So I invite you all to choose your Irish name and share it with me. I've chosen Bridget O'Hurlihy. What's yours?

So anyway, we opened the box and went through an entire block of cheese in one day. We were like George Costanza eating a piece of cheese the size of a car battery. Kerrygold, makers of Irish Dubliner Cheese, also sent a recipe booklet that suggested making a panini with Kerrygold Blarney Castle Cheese and mango chutney. Which is what we had for dinner that night and, let me tell you friends, that was a yummy treat. Be liberal with the chutney. So tasty.

It's funny how cheese can make a girl so happy. A tip 'o the hat to you, Molly O'Loughlin (if that's your real name). :)

Ok- maybe I should have requested that all Irish names submitted should be accompanied by a Hooked-on-Phonics version so we know how to pronouce!

In all seriousness, yes, her real name IS Molly Anne O'Loughlin, first born girl in 3 generations of O'Loughlins. I can attest as being oldest brother and indeed, gosh n begora, she was BORN to sell Irish Cheese; we are now of good fortune to have at LEAST 2 recipes at every holiday that feature "Molly Cheese" as my 5-yr old niece likes to say
