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

Weekly reflections on #myheartylife - feeling thankful for passed on sewing skills, practicing self-care and finding beauty in learning to ride a bike.  More on the blog, link in bio.  Thanks for reading x

#nipitinthebudblog #gloucesterlife #easypeasylemoncake Fondly thinking of my Nan as I mix up the lemon cake batter with L.  When I baked with her as a child we sometimes used a wooden spoon for mixing but I was in awe of the hand held whisk with the handle that seemed so miraculous.  I love that @oxouk have a modern day version for mornings when our slow pace doesn't want to be interrupted by the whirr of machinery #nipitinthebudblog #gloucesterlife #oxogoodgrips #bakingwithkids #childhoodunplugged #slowsaturdays #lovedungarees Trying to decide whether to make lemon cake or these beetroot and chocolate muffins.  I guess the boys will determine that as I've all the ingredients for one but not the other! Love having an on-line cookbook to browse through in my blog.  #nipitinthebudblog #gloucesterlife #beetrootandchocolatemuffins #bakingwithkids #flashbackfriday here you go @cathy.heller my 2.5 year old self saying Hi to your 6 year old self!  My love of gardening must have started at a young age.  I'm pleased to say I get most of the water on the plants these days! 
#nipitinthebudblog #gloucesterlife #throwbackphotos #gardeningwithkids #70skid Writing clears my head. I write the words it's too scary to mutter.  Sharing the words is scary too but in the sharing comes the feeling of being less alone in it.  I dumped these words in a blog post 3 years ago.  Time to let them fly and find someone who might be having a hard time today. Link to "how it feels sometimes parenting a 3 year old" in bio.  Much love x #nipitinthebudblog #gloucesterlife #parentingistough #writingastherapy #newblogpost #gentleparenting Thanks Anna @imaginationtree for this brilliant toddler activity idea.  23 month old Luca filling up muffin tins with balls using our fab easygrip @oxouk tongs #nipitinthebudblog #gloucesterlife #oxogoodgrips #thelennyagency Regrann from @musicalgeorgemoorey -  Alice White & George Shilling in action a few hours ago for session 6 of #spacesgloucester  @gloucestercathedral #nationallotteryfunded Luca and I discovered the most amazing place in town today.  A beautiful craft space where you pay £4 to make anything from beautiful beaded canvases to painted ornaments to mosaic door signs.  What a peaceful way to spend an hour making a canvas for the boys.  Luca helped too, mostly by bimbling about picking up pots of beads and letters. If you're in Gloucester you must check out @kftreasureseekers .  Open daily including Saturdays and available for parties.  We'll definitely be back!
