    Cream cheese is a new favorite in our household. We bought a tub, in lieu of butter – for a change. And we are hooked. My kids love it with their smoked salmon sandwich; me- with cucumber sandwich. Makes for great dip, too – plain or with herbs and spices.

    Although a tad pricey, I guess it will be a permanent fixture in the pantry.

    • Re: great dip. Yes, it does! I should experiment with cream cheese dips too. :)

      We were all and still are cheese lovers at home.

      Although we would sparingly be treated to cream cheese that was then being sold in discs and the contents were individually wrapped into triangles, the cheese of my childhood was the Kraft Cheese in the blue can. I could still picture my mom scrapping the cheese with a fork to top on our spaghetti or macaroni salad. Dad on the other hand preferred kesong puti.

      Globalization has made available all kinds of cheese at very affordable prices but having to monitor salt intake has prevented me from indulging. I find it extremely difficult to pass by the deli counter with all the cheese calling out to me that I purposely changed the supermarket I was regularly going to just so I could avoid their delicatessen.
