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)

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

weegiemum Mon 04-Feb-13 21:40:50

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 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 Mon 04-Feb-13 21:52:22

WorriedMummy73 Are you sure it's not? grin

WorraLiberty 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 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!

SirIronBottom Tue 05-Feb-13 02:11:12

YUM. YANBU

Boomerwang Tue 05-Feb-13 07:29:33

Yes you can eat it when pregnant, as long as it's pasteurised.

Or is there another reason you're not supposed to have it?

I love the inside of brie, but I don't like the white edges... blurgh!

You can indeed eat it while pregnant, as boomerwang says, as long as it's pasturised grin

Love, love, love baked camembert, shove some garlic and rosemary in there before baking and it's heaven - but there is that moment when you've finished and you realise you've eaten a whole cheese and half a french stick!

cwtchontoast Tue 05-Feb-13 08:47:30

Everybody keeps telling me about this pregnancy friendly pasturised brie, but I can't find it anywhere sad

YADNBU
Please eat another wedge for me.

When I was pregnant - last time was ten years ago, so my info isn't up to date I got pasturised brie from Sainsburys deli counter. I used to drive 45 minutes each way just to get hold of some.

Coeur De Lion Brie is made from pasturised milk, as is the Sainsbury's Mild and Creamy variety. Not the Sainsbo's basics one though, don't eat that... or the TTD one.

cwtchontoast Tue 05-Feb-13 09:54:52

Thanks a million NotMost.
We've only got a crappy co-op where I live but it will definitely be worth a jaunt to sainsburys.

cwtchontoast Tue 05-Feb-13 09:56:23

Ooh, am definitely going to sainsburys tonight then smile xx

Skinnywhippet Tue 05-Feb-13 18:55:24

Thanks so much. Never thought that being pregnant would affect me too much diet wise as not really fond of wine/alcohol and don't smoke but giving up Brie and possibly champagne if I am pregnant at Xmas will be horrific!!

MisselthwaiteManor Tue 05-Feb-13 19:02:25

I avoided so many lovely cheeses over Christmas because of pregnancy, I might have to make a special trip RIGHT NOW to go buy some Brie if its definitely allowed! And of course a big french stick.

NellysKnickers Tue 05-Feb-13 20:19:14

When I was pregnant with ds2, I used to waddle downstairs and eat cambazola, great big bites, straight from the wedge, I just couldn't help myself, we had to stop buying it until after he was born

HecateWhoopass Tue 05-Feb-13 20:40:57

oh god. a whole little baked Camembert with caramelised onions and a crispy baguette.

I think I put five pounds on just thinking about that grin
