Partying Down and Filling UP with Hood Cottage Cheese!

It is FINALLY spring time- which brings sunny skies, chirping birds, blooming flowers and warm temperatures.  I don't know about you but that screams outside fun to me!  To celebrate the joy of this time I've joined forces with Hood Cottage Cheese to host a little springtime gathering, out in the sun!  

Now, I have to say, I have had a little bit of an obsession with Cottage Cheese lately.  My go to lunch lately has been roasted veggies topped with the cheese and I have been loving it!  Full of all sorts of calcium and 13 grams of protein, it's the perfect way to fill up my belly and keep my energy levels high through the most tedious of afternoon meetings.


Just recently Hood launched a few new flavors to their line up to keep out taste buds intrigued- a robust Garden Vegetable and a cool Cucumber Dill.  They have tasked me with making up a few new recipes to serve at a springtime/summer time gathering that incorporate these delicious flavors- and I couldn't resist!  With the glorious weather planned for the next week and this holiday weekend I thought this would be a perfect time to have some friends over, enjoy those chirping birds and and chow down on some filling, energy producing snacks!  I'm picturing boats filled with lean turkey and topped with Garden Vegetable, and spicy chicken cooled off with Cucumber Dill...though my brain is still working hard!  Let me know if you have any ideas for me and Ill post soon with my finished recipes and let you know how the fabulous party turned out!
