Someone told me recently that Tnuva (the cottage cheese company in Israel) was selling their cottage cheese here in the States and I did just find this link: http://www.tnuva.com/ that has a "store locator" tool. Apparently, my local Albertson's actually sells Israeli cottage cheese. If this is true - it is like a dream come true. Before you use the locator and run out to buy (and perhaps try) Israeli cottage cheese, wait for me to tell you what I find. I have a sneaky suspicion that it just won't be as good - something about Israeli cows perhaps.... (or the dairy pasteurization process - not sure).
It probably sounds weird for me to be getting all slap-happy over something that most of us think of as an 80s diet food, but I am telling you - FORGET ABOUT IT! So good. My favorite way to eat it is with a breakfast salad (another weird Israeli thing that I cannot wait for!).
So, if you were wondering whether I was getting excited for my trip to Israel next week - the answer is yes! I've got a 14 hour flight and a week's worth of cottage cheese waiting for me - what is there to not be excited about!?
