Killing Me Softly

My new obsession is Garlic Triscuits and cottage cheese. The combo of those two textures and flavors is extraordinary. Salty crispy garlicy crunchy goodness + smooth tangy creamy amazingness = new favorite snack.

But I was reading the ingredients on the Garlic Triscuits and my heart fell. The handwriting of doom on the wall: "Monosodium Glutamate." The "deadly" MSG.

The stuff has been banned from our household. If you need a mental image of the ferocity with which my husband and I reject the stuff, think of how a mob of 1st grade boys would treat a spying little sister trying to get into their clubhouse. Mm hm.

MSG is in just about everything. And among a million other things, it supposely triggers something in your brain to make you want to eat more. Which might explain why I can't stay out of those things.

So... cottage cheese on a spoon? Hm... thanks, but I think I'll pass.
