Cheese piecesAt a local weekend market I visited recently there was a cheese stall and after a sampling I liked 2 of the cheeses so decided to treat myself as I hadn’t been near a specialist cheese outlet for some time. I saw the price of $19.95 on the cheese and you know I assumed it was per kg. The owner did say that it was 100g and yes I agreed and he cut me off a 100g slice from the block. I asked for a similar amount on the second cheese and that ended up being a chunk. It was at about that point I realised that the $19.95 price was per 100 grams. There was no way I could back out of the sale at that point as he had cut me off 2 pieces of cheese.

This is what you get for $36 (the plate is a small bread and butter plate btw)

Slice of cheese

I took multiple pics of the cheese to show the sizes because no matter which way you looked at them the pieces were small. Chunk of cheese

So this cheese worked out at $199.50 per kg.

This is the most expensive cheese I have ever bought or tasted for that matter.

PhotoHunt theme for the week beginning 6th April 2013 is ‘Quirky’

I think of quirky as something that is a bit unusual and makes me smile.

Straw tractor

Saw this hay tractor advertising the local upcoming agricultural show when we were travelling through this farming town. Simple quirky display idea that made us wish that the show was on the weekend we were travelling through. We would have stopped.

While in Belgium I was amazed looking in the windows of the cake bakery shops to see these cakes for sale. Decorated to look like Belgium lace and Belgium chocolate. Male and female.

Has to be the quirkiest cakes I have every seen on public display and readily for sale. Saw this style in most of the cake shops in the front windows. I love the English note that says “A nice present for your father or friend” LOL LOL

Please leave a quirky comment.

About the PhotoHunt

The Saturday PhotoHunt is a photography blog “meme” that was started in March 2006

To play, you simply post a photo on your own blog that represents the theme. These are snapshots that you might have taken on a trip, with your family, or in your home. It is important to use only your own photos.

We are not professional photographers . . . although some are. We are bloggers who are having fun with different themes and sharing our photography. You can see more PhotoHunt entries at Whistlestop PhotoHunt and on Facebook
