June 9, 2014—Fearlessly Archived—Still a fun read; price & availability may have changed.
Without even realizing it, we've accumulated quite a selection of foods from nursery rhymes. In the fall we have pumpkins, just like "Peter, Peter Pumpkin Eater". We have pies, like those found in "Sing a Song of Sixpence", though admittedly, ours do not have blackbirds baked inside them. And in our dairy case you'll find curds & whey, much like that enjoyed by "Little Miss Muffet", and also known as Cottage Cheese. Trader Joe's Organic Lowfat Cottage Cheese is worthy of its own nursery rhyme. Crafted with organic milk, it boasts large and creamy curds that melt in your mouth, and fantastic, sweet-yet-slightly-tangy flavor that might just surprise you. Try it for breakfast with fresh fruit or preserves. Or pair it with tuna for lunch. You can even use it to replace ricotta cheese in your favorite recipes - this is a good way to cut calories without sacrificing flavor or texture. It’s $3.49 for a 16 ounce container.
