My DH says it is unreasonable as 3-4 should be sufficient - I say he is BU - Mumsnet jury return the verdict please

YANBU I love cheese. As long as it does not go to waste there is no problem. If you find it is going off and ends up in the bin then your hubby may have a point

MaxPepsi Mon 17-Jun-13 13:06:00

My DH doesn't like cheese sad but I still manage to have a fridge full of it as I LOVE it.

He doesn't get it, shakes his head in bewilderment when I get giddy over finding a new deli and spend ages trying to decide what to buy.

Fountains Gold is my current new favourite find. It's delicious.

Jamdoughnutfiend Mon 17-Jun-13 12:27:36

I am intrigued by the cheese with little onions and other random flavours in cheddar.

Halluomi is a summer staple for bbqing surely? That can't be unreasonable grin

Fussandmess - that is why DH thinks I am unreasonable, the only person really chowing down the cheese is me (gleeful!) the girls eat an odd baby bel or slice of cheddar - they aren't that bothered

YaDnbu!
We have at the moment a surplus of processed cheese, so not very sophisticated I'm afraid.
2 real cheeses
*Swiss (I am addicted to grilled swiss cheese sandwiches)
*Havarti
Then a bunch of processed products.
*Imperial Sharp Cold pack cheddar
*3 types of processed thick sliced cheese singles -dh can't resist a sale, and sometimes still shops like they live here, but they have left the nest! DS's may be gifted with 1 pack each. grin
*Light Shredded Tex Mex blend
*Shredded 4 cheese Italian blend
*A Jalapeno Cheese Ball (leftover from Christmas)
2 jars of Cheese Whiz, one light and one Jalapeno.

Oops. I do have some Bavarian smoked in the fridge door too.

Justfornowitwilldo Mon 17-Jun-13 09:39:11

Halloumi is deeply unreasonable.

I only have Gouda, buffalo mozzarella, cheddar, Parmesan and cottage cheese in. I'm expecting an Internet shop though grin

WyrdMother Mon 17-Jun-13 09:34:21

Only 6 in the fridge at the mo

Cambozola
Manchego (sp? can't find the label)
Bavarian Smoked
Cheddar
Edam
A tiny, tiny bit of Binham Blue which I would recommend to anyone who can get their hands on it, it's lush.

bedmonster Mon 17-Jun-13 09:30:56

He also just said food shouldn't be used for pleasure - should I LTB!!

So I take it he eats the same thing for breakfast lunch and dinner every day then? He is BU and a bit mental about the cheese!

We currently have...

Cheddar (extra mature)
Brie
Philly with chilli
Philly normal
Stilton (DPs, bleurgh)
Parmesan
Manchego
Boursin
Goats cheese round thing, runny and delicious
Halloumi
Feta

Never realised we are such a cheese loving family. A lot of those go in the cooking, rather than to eat with crackers or whatever, but we all really like cheese. And I haven't even had my shopping delivered this week - there are 2 more cheeses coming this afternoon, which will bring our total to 13!

FussandMess Mon 17-Jun-13 09:18:58

I'm always surprised when people let children chow down on a plate of cheese.

Might as well spoon a few piles of salt into them.

We don't have much. Just Stilton with Mango and Ginger, and Cheddar.

We often have mozzarella, parmesan and spreading cheese.

Am pregnant just now so no Brie, Camembert etc because I do the shopping and I'm not buying food I can't eat.

Nokidshere Mon 17-Jun-13 07:40:40

Oh and we have..

Half a chunk of Parmesan
Half a pack of cheddar
1 Dairy lea triangle
Some emmental
And something beginning with T but I can't remember the name and can't be arsedvto get up to look

Nokidshere Mon 17-Jun-13 07:33:42

Blimy, obviously none of you is skint then!!! That's a pretty expensive stock of cheese for lots of you!

Lizzabadger Mon 17-Jun-13 06:55:54

Cashel blue
Edam
Gruyere
Brie
Cheese spread
Philly light
Halloumi
Some weird cow/sheep/goat stuff
Oh dear

Longdistance Mon 17-Jun-13 06:08:03

We have

Stilton
Smoked
Cheddar
Chilli cream cheese
Cheese triangles
Camembert

This is off the top of my head.
We often have a cheese night and our dds 2 and 4 join us for cheese, biscuits, pickles.
They love it.
Normally they have dinner and then join us smile

BikeRunSki Mon 17-Jun-13 05:58:03

Less excitingly

Mature Cheddar
Low fat Cheddar
Philly
Dairylea
Edam
Babybel
Bavybel light
Cheesestrings
Cottage cheese

mumbaisapphire Mon 17-Jun-13 04:45:32

Currently in our fridge we have
Pecorino Romano
Double Gloucester
Brie
Danish blue
Italian style cheddar made by Americans (feel like I was duped into buying it by the lady in the supermarket who said it was Italian)
Northern Greek feta

We live in Canada where cheese requires a second mortgage. It is so expensive I openly weep in the supermarket at the price tag. A standard block of mature 3 year old cheddar would cost $15/$16 which is £10. I still have to have cheese though!

OrangeFireandGoldashes Mon 17-Jun-13 03:42:49

Amateur. Albeit a completely reasonable amateur. We currently have:

Two different types of cheddar
Stilton
Ossau Iraty
Manchego
Saint Vernier
Pont L'Eveque
Gruyere
Caerphilly
Wensleydale with apricots
Wensleydale with cranberries
Feta
Parmesan
Black pepper Boursin
Philadelphia
Primula (for the dog's Kong)

Bunnyjo Mon 17-Jun-13 00:09:37

Currently we have in our fridge:
Halloumi
Feta
Philadelphia
Mature Cheddar
Applewood Smoked
Brie
Stilton
Vintage Cheddar
Roquefort

and I didn't think we had much cheese in there at all blush

poorpaws Sun 16-Jun-13 23:53:40

Mmmmm so am I the only one with absolutely NO cheese in my fridge then?

Daughter left home 2 years ago and I've not had any cheese in it since (nor any butter, margarine etc). I love cheese.

UniS Sun 16-Jun-13 23:39:54

Also have butter ( cooking) Butter (spreading) , dairy free spread ( for DS's dairy intolerant mate) , and clotted cream ( for spreading on scones).

I like to have specialsed dairy products for different uses.

UniS Sun 16-Jun-13 23:35:26

YANBU

Think its only 4 kinds in my fridge currently.
Stilton, cheddar, Mozzarella, Parmesan.

We have used up all the cheap cheddar ( cooking cheese) and Brie already .

Wallison Sun 16-Jun-13 22:07:33

Laughing Cow blue cheese is brill and I am also intrigued by the cheese with onions already in it - genius. Nice to see another Blacksticks Blue fan, EMUZ - I love that stuff.
