Halloween and cheese may not seem like the most natural combination in the world, but look where chocolate and sea salt were five years ago. Who would have thought that today they would have become as sexy of a pairing as duck fat and potatoes or Brad Pitt and Angelina Jolie? Not me, but oh my, how I am now in love. Halloween and cheese are destined to become such an exalted pairing. I see it in the cards.

By the way, you know what doesn’t go with Halloween? Raisins. Unless they’re chocolate covered. Now that that’s out of my system, from moo to boo.

Here are links to my favorite cheese and halloween ideas, with a few harvest-ey recipes thrown in for good measure.

Any cheesy Halloween plans for you readers? I’m going to a bash with a friend as Bonny and Clyde. Yup, I’m a total geek for dressing up in period pieces. My friend didn’t want to wear my Def Leopard shirt and rat her hair, but still wanted do a partner custome, so obviously this was our only option.
