Four Foods on Friday #25

Time to learn more food facts according to me. If you are not interested you can move along. As always be sure to check out Fun Craft and Recipes to join each week and to spread the news so others might join as well.

1. Cottage cheese. Small curd, large curd, chunk or whipped?
Ah a great source of protein and something that is usually my staple for lunch during the week at work. Bi-Lo branch small curd full fat version with some tomatoes. I actually didn’t know they made a whipped version.
2. Burgers. Made fresh, preformed fresh or preformed frozen?
Burgers are burgers if you ask me. I’ve had them fresh and frozen. Just so long as there is no cheese or onions on it I’m cool.
3. If you could only buy one kind of salad dressing what would it be?
The homemade ranch dressing the local restaurant makes on a daily basis. Can you package that for me?
4. Share a crockpot or slow cooker recipe.
I’ve only actually made homemade chicken soup in mine. It’s a tiny one at 3-4 quarts. I’ll buy a 3 lbs chicken and roast it in the crockpot. Then pull the meat off of it and put it back in with some chicken stock, onions, carrots and spices. Then made some pasta to put in a bowl and spoon over the chicken soup.

    I like all your food choices. But no cheese on your burger? I love cheese on burgers! Oh well to each is own. 🙂

    I agree with no onions on the burger, nothing will ruin one faster. I really hate being at a BBQ and the genius ‘chef’ puts them IN the burger, that’s even worse..

    Small curd cottage cheese with peaches for me! Love your food choices, though. Some of my favorites are in there…like good, homemade ranch dressing.

    Some of my favorite cottage cheese combinations include cottage cheese with oatmeal for breakfast, cottage cheese on a baked potato (yum) and cottage cheese with banana for a snack.A vastly underrated food.(I’ve never came across the whipped variety either!)

    I forgot about made-from-scratch Ranch dressing. That is soooo good!

    I use to eat half a pound of cottage cheese a day. It tasted okay, but like you said, it’s really high in protein and low in calories, so it’s one of the best health foods out there.I don’t think it matters whether or not burgers are frozen, all that’s important is how natural they are and whether or not they come from organic farming methods or not. That’s the big thing as far as health concerns go.

    I love all of the above! I have to also say that I absolutely love my slow cooker…everyone should have one!
