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

Someone was excited to find friends have come to stay. "Help Mummy and Daddy decorate the Christmas tree" is the #kindnesselves first suggestion.

#gloucesterlife It snowed all day and we were indoors with poorly boys (they had a 15 minute  play in the yard at least). This is what the allotment is probably looking like (#onefromthearchives January 2013). #nipitinthebudblog #snowyallotment #allotmentgardening #newblogpost - an @oxouk stocking fillers gift guide .  The steel jigger is our absolute favourite this year :0)

We've decided to book the community hall at our local cafe like we did a few years ago.  His 3rd birthday cake and jungle themed food will be a hard act to follow and he's chosen Dr Seuss for his theme so goodness knows what sort of cake we'll pull out the bag for this one! #birthdaycake #birthdaypartyfood #nipitinthebudblog #willywonkacake Rather intrigued by these!!!! @Regranned from @marksandspencer -  Introducing the avocado you never knew you needed. Our new cocktail avocados don’t have a stone and are completely edible (yes including the skin) In stores now in limited supply. 🥑🥑🥑 - #regrann
