It's Friday already?

Wow! That week went by fast. Because the kids were off on Monday with me I've been off a day all week. I have enough trouble keeping track what day it is.

So, anything happen this week?

I totally missed Karen's assignment this week. I had some good ideas about favorite cheeses, too. Want to hear them? Too bad.

I think my favorite all time cheese is mozzarella. Followed closely by cheddar. Think about it, what doesn't taste good with one of those on cheeses on it?

I'm also partial to ricotta cheese (I'm half-Italian you know). I love lasagna, stuffed shells, ravioli, tortellini; anything you can stuff with ricotta cheese really. Except cannoli, that is. I never understood the concept of a pastry filled with cheese. No, as a matter of fact, I do not like cheese Danish. Aren't you paying attention? By the way, did you know that the singular form of cannoli is cannolo? Now you learned something.

Anyway, those are my favorites. As I kid (who am I kidding, now too) I was a big fan of the Easy Cheese in a can. I could go through one of those cans in 20 minutes if I wanted to. Hey, it's a great source of calcium. It says so right on the bottle!

A new thing I like is something that Jenn found a while back. It's the Laughing Cow cheese wedges. They are supposedly a little better for you than regular cheese, but they still taste good. Also, they are portioned out so you don't eat the whole package in one sitting. Maybe.

So these are a few of my favorite cheeses. (Sing it!) By the way, I'm eating pretzels with highly processed cheese right now. Don't tell Jenn.

In other news, my calves have recovered from last weekend. I haven't done much in the way of running, but I can walk without looking like I'm a hundred years-old. Now I look like I'm 80, so that's an improvement.

See, I haven't done, or seen, anything exciting to talk about all week. We need a new wave of infomercials for me to watch. I think everyone is waiting for the next Billy Mays to come along before they start making up new products. Where is the Slap Chop guy? Is he still in jail?

On that note, have a great weekend!

I have to agree with you about cannoli (and no, I did not know the singular was "cannolo" - thanks for that!), but I have no objection to cheese danish. And I like those Laughing Cow cheese wedges quite a bit myself.

Florinda: I like to call this a learning blog. :)
