Sunday Brunch: The Cheese Plate

Earlier this week we pontificated about the difference between a salad and dessert plate, as well as the tradition of a separate dessert course (a meal in its own right).  Today, we're going to deviate from our normal brunch fare to continue this theme.

Happy cheese-ing everyone!
