    soft cheeses like goat cheese do go bad more quickly than harder aged cheeses.

    Some goat cheese does carry an amonia smell as well I've found, but I'd say your cheese had either reached it's expiration date or wasn't very good goat cheese to begin with.

    But I'd go with goat cheese that hasn't gone past it's expiration.

    I bought some leeks on special and did a great leek and potato soup with most of them. I have 2 left. What can I do with them that does not involve soup or quiche?

    I've used them in casseroles with other veggies and omit some of the onion the casserole calls for.

    You know, I don't know that I've ever eaten a leek. I envision them like really huge green onions, which is what they look like. What do they taste like, and how do you use them?

    They kinda taste like onions, but not exactly. They are actually really good. I have found that there is not much you can do with them though. Aside from the famous leek and potato soup or vichyssoise (if eaten cold), the other most known uses for it are in a quiche or leek and goat cheese tartlet.

    My aunt was known for her spinach dip. It never tasted like any other - turned out, she used Knorr leek soup mix instead of onion soup mix. It is just fantastic that way! I think that is the only way I ever had leeks - the freeze dried kind.

    To me leeks have a very mild onion taste. But DR is right, I usually only see them in soups or in a quiche or tart.

    And you don't use the green part like you can in green onions. It's too tough

    Last night I had to get a little creative because I've been so sick it's been hard to hit the grocery store. I took some jalapeno cheese bread and put mayo/mustard, bacon and cheese on it, threw it in the oven for 10 minutes and the whole family loved it! We had a little salad on the side. Yum!
    Yup, with donuts!!

    Ohh, I have half a loaf of that kind of bread. I know what I'm having for lunch now. Thanks.

    I'm going to attempt to find/remember a recipe that I think prhoshay posted a while ago for chicken in the crockpot using stuffing mix and cream of mushroom soup.

    I am trying to use up what I have on hand as that's just less I have to move.
    Plus, it's EASY. And EASY is my motto right now.
