Say 5 to Cheese!

Dr Tanya also hosts the 5 Things challenge, and today it’s cheese.

The 5 Things tag keeps surfacing on WordPress. I am not sure who first thought of it but I have always found it fun to do. I thought “Why not make it a weekly feature?”
If you participate in a post of your own please tag it #5things.

Last week we had fun listing our favourite varieties of bread so this time it seems quite natural to move on to 5 kinds of cheese to go with those.

Here then are my top

Cheesecake of course and here are five I’ve made, using a cream cheese and fresh cream.
I like a nice mature cheddar and use it in my cooking to make cauliflower or macaroni cheese, or to have on a baked potato. This is just slices served with an apple and some grapes.
I’m not a fan of cottage cheese unless it has fruit in it like apricots or pineapple.
The above is not my image, but it certainly appeals, so I might well try this as it’s cottage cheese with pineapple and a sprinkling of granola. Nice breakfast!
I loved the crumbly texture of Caerphilly cheese and it was a favourite for years, then suddenly it didn’t like me and the smallest piece could trigger migraine. Now I opt for a Wensleydale with apricots or cranberries.
My final choice is my treat to me at Christmas, cheese roule with garlic and herbs. I only get a small pack as Hubby doesn’t like it.
I owned a German Shepherd Dog that did though, having made the mistake of leaving it unattended on the coffee table and she polished off the lot!

I am a retired number cruncher with a vivid imagination and wacky sense of humour which extends to short stories and poetry. I love to cook and am a bit of a dog whisperer as I get on better with them than people sometimes! In November 2020, we lost our beloved Maggie who adopted us as a 7 week old pup in March 2005. We decided to have a photo put on canvas as we had for her predecessor Barney. We now have three pictures of our fur babies on the wall as we found a snapshot of Kizzy, my GSD when Hubby and I first met so had hers done too. On February 24th 2022 we were blessed to find Maya, a 13 week old GSD pup who has made her own place in our hearts. You can follow our training methods, photos and her growth in my blog posts. From 2014 to 2017 'Home' was a 41 foot narrow boat where we made strong friendships both on and off the water. We were close to nature enjoying swan and duck families for neighbours, and it was a fascinating chapter in our lives. We now reside in a small bungalow on the Lincolnshire coast where we have forged new friendships and interests.

    Cheese is one of those foods that I love. I was off cheese for a year and it was horrible. I dreamed of cheese! A good aged Swiss is always good. A smoked gouda or smoked cheddar is also a delight. A favorite dish is a salmon/cheese ball made with smoked salmon, cream cheese and a little garlic and dill. I think I’ll make that this week!

    I like the cottage cheese we have here, also called paneer. It has a firm structure and creamy mild taste.
