Cottage cheese tip
Last night, I went to bed hungry. I don’t usually let this happen, but I really didn’t want to take any more pictures of food. You know you are lazy when you’d rather be hungry than break out the camera, y’know? So I woke up starving and ready for breakfast!
I have a large tub of cottage cheese in my fridge right now, and I’ve been neglecting it. It expires in five days. A great tip I learned from – you guessed it – The Complete Tightwad Gazette is to store your cottage cheese container upside down in the fridge. Sounds wacky, I know, but apparently, by doing this, you extend the life of your cottage cheese by weeks, if not months! The example in the book said the person’s cottage cheese lasted a full 4.5 months beyond its expiration date! I don’t think you will be finding me eating four month old cottage cheese anytime soon, but I like the idea of being able to extend the life an extra week or two. This way, when it’s on sale, you can stock up without worrying about having cottage cheese for breakfast, lunch and dinner. Although that does sound like an exciting food blogging challenge 🙂
I had some 2% cottage cheese with about 7 sliced strawberries…
Along with a toasted whole wheat bagel with a bit of margarine.
I should have taken a picture of Bootsy. He is not one to beg for food (or at least my food. When hubby has cooked a steak on the BBQ, the little guy goes nuts! Luckily, he has a generous father). But he also LOVES cottage cheese. He just sits really close by me while I eat it and waits until his opportunity to lick the bowl clean. I let him, because I am a Cat Person, and that is what Cat People do. I hope this doesn’t gross you out too much, but it is what it is 🙂
I hope you have a great morning!
