Hahahaha!

I haven't liked the texture of thawed cream cheese. "The creamier the cheese the worse it freeze (s)"

But it can be used in things where it's mixed in with other stuff, like frosting.

I'm surprised this one hasn't come up yet. Cream cheese is absolutely great with either hot pepper jelly or chutney. Either spread the cheese on crackers or bread, then put a dollop of the jelly/chutney on top, or just take a brick and pour the jelly/chutney over it and serve with crackers or party bread at a party.

Now please don't take this the wrong way, but I would let at least some of it go bad and then be sure to throw it out in front of DH as a lesson of sorts. Better yet, donate it to a homeless shelter or food pantry.

Buying a 10 lb block of cream cheese is not being thrifty, it's not thinking clearly. Kind of like driving 20 miles to save 2 cents a gallon on gas (which my FIL does).

Janet - I've frozen homemade cheesecakes before and they were still in great shape when I defrosted them, so I would imagine you'd be okay freezing your cream cheese. You may want to divide it into several chunks before freezing, though!

I totally agree. SO - here's the plan

4.5 lbs | 2 cheese cakes (these should freeze)
0.5 lbs | mix w. salsa for dip (super bowl)
0.5 lbs | mix with capers and smoked salmon, smear on crustini (Super Bowl)
0.5 lbs | mixed with crab and squireted into cuke rounds (superbowl)
0.5 lbs | Icing for carrot cake (superbowl)
0.3 lbs | stuff in dates (super bowl)
0.2 lbs | Sunday AM bagels
0.2 lbs | mix w/olives, make sandwich for DH (monday)
0.2 lbs | mix with pineapple, make sandwich for DH (Tuesday lunch)
0.2 lbs | mix with hot peppers and ham, make sandwich for DH (wed)
0.2 lbs | creamcheese ,salami and arugula sandwich for DH (thurs)
0.2 lbs | creamcheese and cuke sandwich for DH (Friday lunch)
0.4 lbs | Cauliflower mac n cheese Friday dinner


This leaves about 2 lbs - which I am giving to my neighbor for her sunday bash.
