Fruit Cake and Cheese

I arrived back in Germany yesterday,
to an extremely wet and blustery day.
The weather has been the same today.
So how better to spend it than
sitting inside,
where it's warm,
catching up?
And to accompany us,
a piece of
fruit cake and cheese.
One of the cheeses is
one of our favourites,
and one of our favourite places.
The other is
White Stilton with Cranberry and Orange Whirl.
Very nice!
It's the kind of cheese we don't see in Germany,
so it's a real treat.
I brought it back in my suitcase.
The fruit cake is the Christmas Cake
I made the day before I went to the UK.
I sliced the top off ready for icing
which allowed us to try it.

Hello Lynne:
Ah, fruit cake and cheese. Now this has to be someone with a northern, even a Yorkshire, connection. An absolutely delicious combination.

As for the Stilton, one of our all time favourite cheeses and would Christmas be the same without it?

Wet and chilly here so we may well follow your example but first the cake must be made and then the cheese to be found. Oh dear, we will copy virtually!!
