1 pâté, 18 cheeses and 3 soups

Cheesey leftovers

We had quite the cheese fest in the weekend and ended up with 7 different kinds of cheese leftover.

Leftover cheese!? What is that? I hear you ask. I know, it sounds strange to be the owner of leftover cheese. To be fair, we sampled 18 different kinds of cheese and most of them were finished. I’ll be posting more about the cheese fest later.

We had a shit ton of crackers, baguettes and antipasto bits and pieces. I made 3 cups of chicken liver pâté for the occasion and have a little leftover. It is amazing spread on hot toast. If you’ve never eaten pâté on hot toast before, you are missing out. The moment that buttery goodness touches heat, it starts melting. It’s amazing.

The Honest Truth

This week The Honesty Box delivered spuds, kumara (sweet potato) and a big pumpkin among other goodies. This all screams SOUP to me. Since we had no soup last week, this week we’re having 3 kinds of soup! I’m cutting down on gluten for my Graves’ Disease diet so the carb component is mostly for The Koala’s enjoyment, I’ll probably just be having soup on its own.

I bought The Koala this great Thermos food jar (which actually ticks off bucket list item number 4) to keep his lunch nice and hot. He is on the road all day and winter can a little bit cosier with a hot lunch.


Here’s what we’re eating this week:


What are you eating this week? Do you think 3 soups in a week is too much?

I am Genie, a graphic designer/photographer obsessed with food and bunnies. I live in Whanganui, New Zealand with my husband, The Koala and our two rabbits, Kobe and Bento. I write about my hedonistic ways and I love the mantra "Eat well, travel often". I prefer not to write about myself in third person.


  1. Nah, 3 soups aint bad.
    Soup for lunch is always a good break too.
    I must say though, you guys are eating like kings and queens over there! Gah-DAMN!

  2. Oh I could never do it 😦
    Le boyfriend has this thing were he hates soups, there is no way in hell he will eat one, it doesn’t matter if it something like miso soup or if it’s a creamy one, he just wont do it.
    On the other hand I would have soup every single day, my mother and grandma make mean vegetable soups and they use a tiny type of pasta that we call “municiones” in spanish (they are really similar to israeli couscous)

    • Interesting. The Koala LOVES soup. I don’t know if he could do it every day though. Does Le boyfriend like curries or stews?

      Municiones…does that kind of sound like minestrones?
