how to eat a Laughing Cow

Peel it first, then bite it, slurp it or lick it, depending on what mood you’re in.
Or skip the peeling, nip a hole in it and squeeze it out and suck it all up.9-6-13 - cheese tasting mosaic 4B

Our team of tasters went for tentative licks being first time eaters of The Laughing Cow cheese triangles.  They were sampling two new flavours – Light with Emmental and Light with Blue Cheese. Promising smooth and cheesy triangular tastiness the smallest of our tasters E and V  happily slobbered their way through theirs.  The older children abandoned their triangles finding the flavour and texture ‘a bit strange’.  They might have preferred them spread on some crackers rather than tucking into them neat.  Our adult tasters preferred the Blue Cheese Light triangles to the Emmental and were disappointed there were no actual blue specks in them.9-6-13 - cheese tasting_group discussion 4B

The cheese tasting took place in our friends’ garden alongside tea and biscuits.
G’s serving suggestion was a Laughing Cow Light triangle topped with an apple slice perched on a flapjack, gobbled whole of course – we can’t vouch for that as no-one else had a mouth big enough to try it!  At 25 calories per triangle quite a healthy snack really, more so if you ditch the flapjack perch!9-6-13 - cheese tasting_serving suggestion 4B

E’s been making light work of the leftover cheese triangles – they make a handy appetiser at tea time while he waits for his dinner to cool down.  He prefers the stronger tasting Blue Cheese ones too being a toddler not adverse to pungent flavours (garlic stuffed olives being among his favourite foods!) Next time I might actually try using the triangles as flavouring in cooking – there’s no shortage of Laughing Cow recipe ideas here
Disclosure: I was sent free samples of The Laughing Cow Light cheeses to try. I was not required to write a positive review and all opinions are my own

I love how an ordinary moment frozen in time by the camera can actually reveal so much. Luca is all about inhabiting his body and jumping, running and climbing. Euan is all about the quirkiness, curiosity and inventions. There's more about these best friend brothers on the blog in this month's #siblingsproject post #gloucesterlife #nipitinthebudblog
This little one is negotiating hard to get out of food shopping with me. Even saying that poor Daddy will be hungry if we don't restock the fridge isn't working. Apparently Daddy will be fine eating a wooden mushroom while L watches telly! #gloucesterlife #nipitinthebudblog #toddlerantics💜
#mischiefmakers #summerreadingchallenge starts today - you can find out more at your local library. E was excited to sign up and work towards earning his medal. There are some great activities taking place in Gloucestershire libraries this summer. #welovereadingbooks #gloucesterlife #nipitinthebudblog
I'd love a packet of crisps the size of a pillow case to make the same toddler-to-Doritos bag ratio. #gloucesterlife #nipitinthebudblog #toddlerliferocks
Love Saturday mornings. E's busy creating already with @geomagworld #gloucesterlife #nipitinthebudblog

Happy memories of our Cornwall break last month at the start of this super sunny heatwave season. #lightroomstoriescontest #adobelightroom #nipitinthebudblog
Our first "soaked on the school run" selfie in a long long time! So many smiles and "yay, it's raining" from everyone in the playground ☔😄 #gloucesterlife #nipitinthebudblog
I think Luca was channelling his inner Monet when he painted his duck money box #2yearoldartist #gloucesterlife #nipitinthebudblog
I love finding pictures on my phone I'd forgotten about that remind me of a really special time with my boys (the Project Pilgrim celebration at @GlosCathedral a couple of weeks ago) #gloucesterlife #nipitinthebudblog
Love this kids creativity - there's only so many times you can tolerate your little brother interrupting your game of giant Connect 4 after all! #gloucesterlife #nipitinthebudblog
L fell asleep in the car today and stayed asleep when I got him out. I took this picture thinking I'd savour the moment and then wake him so that bedtime wouldn't be messy but just look at that face, I couldn't. So I enjoyed the cuddle instead and he's now snoring blissfully beside me again. Trust your baby, he knows what he needs 😴 #gloucesterlife #nipitinthebudblog
