What do you do with your Humboldt Fog?

So far, I've just eaten as-is, plopped on crostini. But, I feel I need some new ideas.
What ways do you eat your Humboldt?
crumble it up and put it in a salad with arugla or other fairly bitter greens, and perhaps some pear, walnuts and shallots. what my kids call the "Alice Waters Salad". I realize it is a bit soft to crumble well, but it is good enough to be worth getting your hands messy: coats the leaves a bit much, but tastes very good. Just don't overdress. (with olive oil and basalmic vinagrette).
I am a Humboldt Fog addict -- any way you define it!
While I love it mostly plain, I also enjoy it with drizzle: honey, or a really thick balsamic. I also picked up some pomegranate honey at a Korean market and currently that is my favorite drizzle.
It is also delicious with raspberries or raspberry jam.
I smear it on a thick, crusty slice of italian bread, slap a few slices of early girl tomatoes on it, lay down a few sliced kalamata olives, grind a little pepper over it and top it with some crispy lettuce leaves. I drizzle olive oil on another slab of bread and it's my favorite sandwich for the moment.
I made a pasta dish (not my own) with goat cheese arugula and garlic that was awesome. Olive oil, garlic , pepper (your choice) salt and about 2 oz of goat cheese per serving in a bowl with some fresh arugula. Toss with hot pasta and server.
