Well this was deserving of a post all its own! On our last day in SF we had lunch at Slanted Door and then walked around the Ferry Building, which was not nearly as crowded as it had been on Saturday morning. We decided to indulge in some bread, cheese, and sweets for our last dinner, and we went from stall to stall until we found what we were looking for.
For bread we picked up two baguettes, one sourdough and one sweet (although they really tasted about the same!) from Acme Bread. They only take cash, good thing we still had some on us!
Next we headed to Cowgirl Creamery, which we could actually get into on Sunday as opposed to Saturday when it was swarmed with shoppers. Ya’ll, this place was heaven. We took a number and waited a couple of minutes for them to call it. While we waited we picked up a half round of Humboldt Fog cheese, which I’d heard nothing but raves about from my cheese-loving friends. When it was our turn, we told them what kind of bread we had and he started cutting samples of cheeses he thought would go best with it. We tried a few but in the end, we agreed that Midnight Moon, another much firmer goat cheese, was just what we were looking for.

The feast. Yes we ate it in our hotel room on top of a dismantled paper bag, using nothing but our hands and one plastic spoon to form the perfect bites of bread and cheese.
