I picked up some Labne from the Halal store.

Then I put it inside dates.

It was fucking delicious, of course.

Weird, I always thought of labne as yogurt, but apparently it can also be more cheese-like depending on the culture.

My searching has turned up something along the lines of "strained yogurt that turns it into a cream cheese." I've been eating it more like cream cheese than yogurt, myself. It's one of those blurred lines I guess. "solid milk"

I don't even care 'cause it's super delicious.

does it melt the same as muenster? b/c if it does i have to try this. normally for grilled cheese i stick w/cheddar and use muenster if i'm feeling fancy. i wonder how fancy fancy muenster might taste in a grilled cheese.

I really dig halloumi. there's a local place that does a double-grilled cheese sandwich: they grill halloumi, then put it with avocado, shaved beets, arugula, and garlic aioli on salted rye, then grill the whole thing. it's just as awesome as it sounds.

but as much as I dig halloumi, I like bread cheese just a little bit more - halloumi is saltier than bread cheese, so I find the bread cheese to be a little more versatile.

Yeah, I love haloumi, but I could only eat it occasionally, not every day.

When I was younger and worked at a deli in a grocery store, there was this really good Swiss cheese called "Alpine Lace."

Not sure if they still make it, or where I could even find it around here (our store had it once, albeit briefly). Really good stuff. Less hard and stiff; softer and more flavorful.

Miss that stuff.

Wait what? Do people exist who don't like halloumi? Bring them to me for killing.

I made mushrooms stuffed with stilton. Yummers, is what a teenage girl might say.

What's a good thing to do with shitty cheese you wouldn't eat straight or on a sandwich?

Nachos are basically the lowest level cheese repository.

Weird isn't it? A mid tier food devolved into lower form. Usually goes the other way.

A grilled cheese sandwich can elevate sub-optimal cheese.
