Day 30: yum

File under: food | Image del día

Phil and Becky came to town for see our (not-so) new house and have lunch. We always have a great time when we get together with them, and we always eat and drink well. The highlights were a warm goat cheese salad (basically this one, but I use fresh cherries because I love the combination of the savory goat cheese, tangy Dijon dressing, and tart cherries) and a nice bottle of wine we busted open (courtesy of Dave McCarthy) that went perfectly with the salad and pasta dish. The lowlight was the hazelnut torte with chocolate glaze I made for dessert. It sounded good in theory but was just not very tasty. Shocking, right?

Sadly, I forgot to take many pictures. I got one of the salad, but the only goat cheese round I had left by the time I thought to take a picture was the one that was the least toasty. It was still delish.

And now I'm going to drink the last bit of wine that's left and call it a night.



#1 Thanks, all - it is very

Thanks, all - it is very good, if I do say so myself.

Sarah - That sounds so amazing. Note to self: befriend someone with goats. I HAVE had goat cheese with beets. In fact, that has to be one of my favorite food combinations. Phil and Becky are not beet fans, so I went with cherries. I will definitely be buying some beets this week, though. Thanks for the reminder!

A guy I work with has goats and he brings in fresh cheese. Have you ever tried mixing it with beets? Yum!
