How about a nice ham steak with pineapple rings? Melon balls wrapped in thinly sliced prosciutto?

I can't even mix dry foods with my cats. I mixed Purina cat chow and Science Diet once, and when I came back I had a half bowl of Science diet pellets.

No and no. Sorry, there is not a fruit/meat combo that works in my world. I know other folks love it, but it just is wrong for me. I keep tasting...but haven't found one that works. Last time I tried the melon/proscuitto thing all I kept thinking was, "What a waste of good proscuitto!" I peeled it off and ate each one separately.

Actually, cottage cheese is what is left over AFTER you make the ricotta.

The flavour of cheese, any cheese, is too overpowering. It totally destroys the delicate flavour of the seafood.

I disagree. Ricotta is what's left after you make other cheeses (e.g. parm.) and is not considered a cheese. On the other hand, cottage cheese is a fresh cheese.

Doesn't matter. Either way ricotta and cottage cheese are on my "do not eat" list.

I only eat ricotta and cottage cheese in very specific dishes and in very specific ways.

A bowl of piping hot, strongly seasoned chili wih a couple of heaping tablespoons of cottage cheese in it is awesome!

The same thing with Ricotta and almost any vey spicy curry dish.

Yum City!

LOL.... I love ham (or Canadian bacon) with pinapple on pizza. And, the only way I would have shrimp with cheese is in an alfredo pasta dish. I would also include mushrooms and broccoli.
