Cottage Cheese

It was with surprise that I discovered cottage cheese a few weeks ago. My mother says I ate it as a child, but I don't remember. So cheap, so versatile, and with so much protein (more than yogurt or peanut butter)--this is good food, and you can sprinkle paprika on it. It also mixes well with fruit or beans, particularly garbanzo beans. I prefer the large curd but it's harder to find. The Organic Farms brand small curd is quite good, though.
