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! We have an elderly dog called Maggie who adopted us as a 7 week old pup in March 2005. 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.
