excuse my ignorance but i haven't ever heard of cheese curds. I see amazon.com sells them. I immediately thought of cottage cheese but don't think that is what you're talking about. What do they look and taste like? Inquiring minds want to know!

After posting I googled cheese curd again. I am going to have to order some to try them. Sounds yummy!

I am having the hardest time with cooking anything for just me.Even when it was technically just Pete and I for a few months there, he always made extra and took it to work, so we were still cooking like we were cooking for a family. Now, its just me and I don't have a clue what to do. . .Lauren
hug to you Lauren, I know how you feel. After so long of cooking for two or more, (extended families) I suddenly found myself cooking for one. So after a long time of eating just soups or popcorn for dinner, I decided to bake chicken pieces for a week or five days, and cut them into salads for the week. Or I make a meatloaf and have that with veggies or salads. Or I bake other meats for the week with salads. Then once in a while I splurge and make pizza....for myself, yes, again. I sometimes make casseroles or lasagne and just eat that all week too. Lots of different salads. I love to cook and experiment, but it does get redundant for one. Praying hug

as you found out, cheese curds are small chunks of cheese solids that have been separated from the natural whey found in milk, but have not been pressed into molds to make cheese. They are a mild cheddar flavor, and usually a whitish color. They are a real delicacy around here, and often battered and deep fried at fairs and festivals. If they are really fresh (or right out of the microwave) they will squeak when you bite into them. Yummy.

I don't make them, but buy them at the grocery store, or if I go to an actual cheese shop over in Wisconsin cheese

In Canada Canada they make a dish called poutine, which I understand to be French fries covered with cheese curds and brown gravy. Never had that; I prefer my cheese curd squeaky fresh.

Michael, I had to laugh about the Canadian version poutine. . .I spent a little over a month in Canada for training a few years back, and the other kids in my training program were nuts about their poutine. It looks horrible and I mean it looks horrible, but it doesn't taste too bad, although I don't know if I'd ever develop a craving for it lol. . .

I;m going to have to figure something out, because I am not eating right at all, and some nights I don't eat at all. I was doing Sunday dinner with the kiddos for several months, but they have all returned to their own activities so it was getting to be just one of them and myself. Growing up, we never had left overs, there were always a ton of people eating at my house, so I never developed a taste for left overs. Pete had no problem with leftovers at all, including some that he should have avoided lol. If it was in the fridge and didn't bark at him when he opened it, he'd eat it, LOL. I could cook and freeze I think, so I will try that this weekend and see how it goes. I have a cabinet full of soups, chili, and canned fruits and veggies, but I can't seem to use milk or bread or lettuce before it goes bad. I'll let you know how it goes lol. . . Lauren

thanks for explaining to me what they are. This post makes me want to travel to places I've never been before and try different types of food. I wonder what other foods I'm missing out on.
