    Really a different product than cheese sticks.

    Cheese sticks are often processed, second-rate cheese.
    Curds are taken from what would later become an excellent cheese.

    Just think of them as a sample, about 360 days before they would become year-old aged cheddar!
     
  4. Years ago...when in grade school...my class toured a cheese factory in a nearby small town here in Indiana. They showed us how they made cheese..and had a huge bin of cheese curds. They gave everyone a scoop of them. I remember then as being quite delicious!

    Last night was beef enchiladas & Mexican rice.

    Tonight, marinated chicken breasts and scalloped potatoes, either corn or carrots on the side.

    I raided my two flowerpots of basil today, grated some Parmesan cheese, threw in some pine nuts and garlic, and added a splash of olive oil and made a deeeeeeliiiiicioussss Pesto. I could really coat myself in that stuff... Had some spaghetti with it, naturally.

    Oh yum.
    I have some left over roast chicken that I'll use up tonight. Maybe a creamy pasta with mushrooms or cannelloni or a stir fry or a chicken pie. As you can tell I'm undecided.

    You are a mind reader. Chicken, leek, mushroom, cream, dry sherry and lots of garlic with a puff pastry top. 'Twas lovely.

    If you & your family are ever in our neck of the woods you're more than welcome. How old is your baby now?

    Last night I decided to stop by Toast Kitchen and Winebar in Pittsburgh for their Chef's selection 4-course dinner. From talking with the server, it varies from night to night. I had mussels, followed by a fillet of some lighter-coloured fish (can't remember the name), salad, and steak. Only the salad was on the regular menu - the rest were creations for the Chef's Selection that they are doing for the month of June.

    The wine pairings were good as well. All-in-all, a very nice evening.

    (probably back to beans and rice for tonight!)

    The kids had hectic schedules last night so it was a quick supper in our home. Bacon sandwiches. I know it doesn't sound like too much but sometimes a pan of hot bacon layered over some fresh bread is just the ticket.
