I am halfway there. I can't stop.

WorriedMummy73 Mon 04-Feb-13 21:27:38

I quite often sit and eat a full packet of Jarlsberg slices in one sitting. So yummy I don't even realise I'm doing it!

YANBU. I ate an entire Boursin one night last week. entirely normal.

Juanca Mon 04-Feb-13 21:32:41

YABU if you haven't baked it and used an entire baguette as a spoon.

MortifiedAdams Mon 04-Feb-13 21:35:47

Mmmmmmmmmmmmmmmm...................... delicious.

Juanca I do that with Camembert, but haven't tried it with Brie yet grin

Yanbu, I ate so much dinner I am so weighed down I don't think I can do the washing up (or gravity might land me in the kitchen any second now)

YANBU

Brie rocks my world.......on toast......with chilli chutney glazes over

Yanbu! I had a whole Port Salut wedge on baguette for lunch!

<< Pops head into thread nervously >>

Do you know I have never tasted Brie?

I know I must be missing out because everyone I know seems to love it? confused

WorriedMummy73 Mon 04-Feb-13 21:42:36

Gotta be honest (and preparing to be flamed big time) but I'm not down with Brie (sorry, I'm so sorry, please spare my kids!). It's......weird in a way I can't describe. Give me a hard Dutch cheese anyday. And that's not a euphemism!

NotMostPeople Mon 04-Feb-13 21:45:52

I've been known to do it although the dog has scuppered my plans once or twice when I've been stupid enough to leave the Brie unattended while nipping to the loo. If you eat low carb stuffing a whole wedge of Brie won't do too much harm to your waistline either.

amicissimma England Mon 04-Feb-13 21:48:33

You are making me salivate!

I think I should warn you if you see Saint Agur Delice in your supermarket to run away as fast as your legs will carry you. Mmmmm!

WorriedMummy73 Mon 04-Feb-13 21:51:53

I know it's not on the same level because it's a spread (and very processed) but has anyone else tried 'Seriously Strong Smoky'? Holy cow! It's like porn in a cheese spread stylee!

WorraLiberty England Mon 04-Feb-13 21:52:22

WorriedMummy73 Are you sure it's not? grin

WorraLiberty England Mon 04-Feb-13 21:53:14

I meant are you sure it's not a euphemism? grin

WorriedMummy73 Mon 04-Feb-13 21:55:08

Worra - it does sound disgusting, doesn't it? The Dutch hard cheese, not the Seriously Strong Smoky! Although now THAT sounds like a euphemism...

Pregnant Panda says you are being entirely unreasonable. Wails

Awww Panda I couldn't have Danish Blue when I was incubating the DC sad
I love cubes of Danish Blue with a rocket, walnut and apple salad.

WRT to brie-
Sainsburys Somerset Brie grin.

I bought myself a small dish from Lakeland (with a lid) to bake Brie/Camenbert for Christmas. Lush with breadsticks.

Boomerwang England Mon 04-Feb-13 22:40:07

Has to be French Brie. The English stuff seems a bit flavourless and too... doughy? in the white part.

I love it with green grapes. I couldn't eat a whole wedge though, it's too rich. I'd feel sick :s

MortifiedAdams Mon 04-Feb-13 22:49:03

I left about a fifth. Tried my bestest but its getting late and I need to sleep.

At least I have a.sliver for.tomorrow.

MsVestibule Mon 04-Feb-13 22:56:48

I bloody love Brie. Love it. Love it. Love it. So much so that I will only buy one wedge a year (at Christmas, of course), and make it last a full 2 days. Of course I eat the rind, too.

Oh, I want one now. I might make it my new vice instead of chocolate.

Skinnywhippet Mon 04-Feb-13 23:29:02

Omg Brie. Shit, can you not eat it pregnant? TTC soon. That would be a nightmare.

ruledbyheart Tue 05-Feb-13 01:24:12

Yabu but only because Im pregnant and not allowed it envy

IsThatTrue Tue 05-Feb-13 01:55:46

Mmm I need crackers to eat my Brie with but in doing frugal February and I'm not supposed to be buying. I'll have to wait until next week. The Brie in the fridge (whole wheel from Costco grin) will taste even better by then anyway!

YUM. YANBU
