Stupid question re cottage cheese...

Hello friends!

I would assume that plain is best, obviously, but is it okay to buy it with additives (I'm rather partial to it with pineapple in, and ISTR that Tesco do it with peach & mango in too, and I rather liked that one, too!)

Cheers,

Sarah xxx

    Yes it is fine.  I like the onion and chive one, not keen on pineapple!

    Thanks Fiona!

    Really feeling positive now with all the help and support I've received on here. You lot have been very accepting of this loony (wish I could say the same about some other places I've posted to in the past)!

    Out of interest where would you suggest? I can't say that I've noticed Tesco as being particularly more expensive, in general, than the other supermarkets. I know that if you can get cheaper fruit and veg at the local market, farm shops etc. but hard to beat the convenience of the supermarket.....

    Local markets at closing time, they usually sell things off cheap at that point. Used to get some great bargains from Bolton meat and fish market 10 mins before close.

     Supermarkets....Iceland, Aldi, Netto, Farm Foods. Major supermarkets are only convenient if you drive as they are often out of town, I don't think Sarah drives.

    I am very keen on Lidl's 'Linessa' plain cottage cheese - can't remember off the top of my head how much it is, but a fair bit cheaper than the mainstream supermarkets and I like it as it's a bit smoother than the usual brands.

    If there was anywhere else round here, Dawn, I wouldn't! I don't have much option. They've got the monopoly! When I was in Manchester, I had access to ASDA (albeit a crappy one).

    Where else can I go? The only other place I can think of round here is an Iceland (and that's not much cop!)

    I'm serious. I'm in the city centre.

    Cheers m'dear!

    Well remembered, Dawn - I don't! I've not been in Liverpool very long, so I don't know where most places are. I don't think there are any markets round here (and buying fresh meat's not an option as I have nowhere to store it at the moment).

    At the moment, I'm restricted to living on convenience stuff (which, obviously, is the most expensive). I am TRYING to get into the YMCA, but they're being VERY bloody minded (and I'm struggling with references, not having had much of a life to date).

    It has to be tinned/packeted/boxed for it to last. Especially as I don't know if I'm going to have a roof over my head on Thursday.

    Cheers m'dear!

    what do you eat cottage cheese with? Everyone here raves about it so i bought some, but i cant think of what 'healthy' to eat it with. I normally would suggest doritos or crackers.... but they are not good, especially before bed.

    Do you guys just eat it by itself with a spoon?

    Mixed berries and toasted seeds go well.

    Or chuck in some grapes.
