It’s finally Friday, which is cause for celebration! And I have launched the blog Foodie for Two, with two postings under my belt. Woohoo! This is a quick post to say thanks for joining me. With a celebration there of course has to be food, and a Happy Hour is in order. It’s easy to throw something quick together: Try a fruit and cheese board with an herbed goat cheese log, a loaf of crusty bread, dried fruit (cherries and dates), olives (Castelvetrano), nuts (pecans) and some grapes. Add your favorite wine or cocktail and let’s toast each other. Cheers!
An herbed goat cheese log is super easy to make, here’s how: 1 ½ tablespoons Fine Herbs (dried parsley, chives, tarragon & chervil)
1 tablespoon fresh Basil, finely chopped (fresh basil has brighter flavors than dried) Note: If you have all fresh herbs on hand use instead of dried. Mix herbs together on a small plate. Roll the goat cheese in the herb mixture so the log is completely covered, including the ends. Now you are ready to assemble your Happy Hour platter. Remember, we eat with our eyes first so pull out your nice platter or small cutting board for an appealing presentation.
Be sure to check back on Monday for my post in honor of St. Patrick’s Day: a simple, traditional meal with my twist on it.
And don’t forget to set your clocks ahead one hour this Saturday night for Daylight Savings Time!
