Just what I needed. :)
[eta]: And I'd never noticed that buried way down in the queso recipe is blue cheese. I don't seem to be having any trouble with it, though, so...
[eta2]: I forgot the snake! When we were out in the Bog Garden, we'd been sitting on a bench to order lunch. We got up to walk out of the park and Jeff stepped on a small bridge... and suddenly, part of the bridge sat up, very startled, and slithered away. I think we scared it more than it caught us by surprise, and it was the same color as the bridge and leaves, so, maybe a corn snake?
For all the tromping around out here that I've done, that's the first time I've run across a snake.
