Usually I don’t mind things that are store brand. Cheap. Same quality. Whatever.
Except I have discovered that store brand cottage cheese tastes like bleh.
I love cottage cheese. I used to eat it all the time. ALL the time. Until my mother informed me how it was made. Thanks mom!
So then patroling the WW boards I was hearing people talk about cottage cheese. How it’s so yummy. And good for you. And I decided why not give it another try! (I refuse to try greek yogurt, it just sounds icky.)
So I did. And I fell back in love with cottage cheese.
And I stuck with the good kind. You know, the $3.69 for a tub of it kind.
Let’s fast forward to a month 5 weekend payperiod month. We’re coming up on weekend #5. Guess who has no extra money. No, not even $.50.
So last night I went to stock up on my staples, you know – cheap lettuce, 1/4 gallon of milk, store brand cottage cheese. Just enough to make it until Monday. (Yay payday!!)
Heads up, Food Lion cottage cheese = Eww…
I was a little sad.
But at least I have something to eat in the house.
Monday can’t get here soon enough. I want good cottage cheese again.
