Gouda and Sun Dried Tomato Cheese Spread

The picture isn't very pretty, but it sure tasted good! Techincally, this is a cheese ball or a cheese log, but I read a very in depth article about how cheese 'balls' and 'logs' (harhar) are not in style and they turn people off. So, I went with 'spread' instead. This all sounds very naughty, doesn't it?
