I'm happy to announce my new tolerance, maybe even 'like' for cottage cheese. Even as recently as last year, my dear dad offered me some of his cottage cheese to which I crinkled up my nose and snottily replied, "Ewwwww!" (Yes, kids can even be snotty at 41.) :) Then one day, my friend Nancy offered some topped with crushed canned pineapples as a snack to Little Sis who said "MMMMM!" after the first bite but then didn't want any more - LOL! I guess she didn't really like it then, huh? Not wanting to let perfectly good food go to waste, I decided to give the ol' cottage cheese another try. And guess what?!?! It was not disgusting like I always remembered it! It was actually pretty good, especially w/ that pineapple! Now I'm a regular eater of cottage cheese, but I can only eat it w/ lots of fruit on top - the canned pineapple w/ some juice is definitely a winner. Not too shabby, right? But I do have to use a small spoon because bigger spoonfuls of it have still been known to induce my gag reflex, but whatever, right? Yay for me! :)
Below, I topped it with applesauce after my seriously talented bento blogging friend Venia over at Organized Bites suggested it one day. Mmmmm, a most acceptable and tasty suggestion! Thanks Venia! :) Be sure to check out her page - she has some gorgeous lunches over there, but promise to come back and not ditch me for good! :)
So here's my breakfast, lunch, snack, whatever, I'm hungry! :)
