Fresh mozzarella

I love the stuff. It brings back so many memories--of my childhood, at my aunt's house in Brooklyn, we'd drive in for the day on Sundays from Long Island. We'd leave after church and arrive around 12 or 1. She'd have lunch out--cold cuts, semolina bread, ricotta, and fresh mozzarella. I'd eat the salami and fresh mozzarella on semolina bread.

Today I bought some--we were going to have a few of the wife's friends from work over, but they couldn't make it due to flooding and the turnpike being closed, so we had it for lunch. I could eat an entire ball of fresh mozzarella if left to my own devices--sometimes, I think I should just eat as much of it as I can stand and get the urge out of my system once and for all, but I fear it would not work. It's all the self control I have to slice a few pieces off and put the rest back. It's the perfect creaminess, the stringiness, the moisture, the bite of the cheese, so mild yet so flavorful. I don't even need anything with it--but if I drizzle it with olive oil and garlic, or eat it with some sundried tomatoes, it's great as well.
