The Nutcracker: Act Five – The Mouse King

Tuesday, December 06, 2011

Of course today’s gift options are going to revolve around one thing – a pet mouse. HA! Just kidding.

Did you know the play was originally called “The Nutcracker and The Mouse King?” Yeppers, it was! That’s because the Nutcracker and the Mouse King battle in the play. I won’t tell you what happens in this fight of food and kitchen utensils ; )

It’s around a mouse’s favorite food (and mine) – CHEESE.

·         From Pastoral, an adorable Chicago shop that ships across the US, an awesome cheese medley.
·         Pastoral and a number of other places like Pennsylvania Macaroni offer Cheese of the Month Clubs.
·         I LOVE these state cutting boards. In fact, the West Virginia one I on my Christmas list!
·         Of course Crate & Barrel has a number of cheese accessories that make an awesome gift. Some options include a cheese board with cutter, cheese markers and an individual slicer.
·         I discovered Magnolia Lane in Nags Head earlier this year and I just love its adorable, painted dishes. How cute is this festive cheese tray!?
