I'd Like To Change My Plea, Your Honor



Is there such a thing as temporary insanity....for your taste buds? Yesterday I got a piece of my most glorious and delicious true NY Style Cheesecake (if you missed out on my cheesecake search obsession, you can go here and here), and I SWEAR to you that it tasted faintly like blue cheese. Blue cheese is, of course, the most disgusting item consumed by human beings that isn't a strange animal body part. It's MOLD, people, masquerading as an edible dairy product. So you can imagine my disgust each time I took a bite and got the strange aftertaste of mold. There was no mold on the cheesecake. I looked it over thoroughly. And I confess, I probably should have stopped eating it just from the taste of the mold, even if I couldn't find any. But it was cheesecake, for crying out loud. You can't throw away really good quality cheesecake! So I did what any normal human being would do: I ate all but 4 bites of it, and then I put it in the fridge and decided I'd choke the rest down later. And what do you know? When I tried to eat it today, it tasted absolutely fine. Totally normal. Not a hint of blue cheese to be found. So all I can think is that my tastebuds went temporarily insane. Or that dementia has just begun. Either way, it was a dang good cheesecake. Well, today, that is.

Listen number one. Cheesecake should NEVER be eaten. Honestly Cheese and cake in the same word? NO GOOD!

Hormomes hijacked your tastebuds is my guess. But just a day apart?

Melissa, up to this point I thought you and I were soul mates, kindred spirits, maybe twins separated at birth. But now I want to break up. NO CHEESECAKE???

I would have done the same thing. No sense wasting perfectly good cheesecake. And weird about the taste. Maybe it was reacting to something else you had eaten before.

I like blue cheese once in a blue moon, but cheesecake tasting like blue cheese eeks me out!
