      mr-veg,

      Well Colorado is quite the drive, you'll have to let me know what time dinner is a couple of days in advance! I'm going to check the stores from your site and I'm also curious if it is hiding in any of the stores that I already shop at but never noticed because I didn't know it existed.

      This is a very unique recipe. I've never seen the cubed cottage cheese, but maybe that's what makes this dish so special. This seems like such a healthy and tasty meal.
