Happy Earth Day one day late! If you follow me on Facebook, you saw that my twins and I spent the day outdoors admiring one of the Lords greatest creations, the Pacific Ocean! It was such a beautiful day yesterday, we had no desire to be inside. I decided to take the boys for a run along the beach and then we walked down to the water to play for a bit. As soon as we got down to the water three dolphins swam by to say “hi!” It was a perfect moment to reflect and be thankful that we are able to be part of something so extraordinary.
Back to cooking… It is one of my favorite activities! I absolutely LOVE trying new flavors! I remember the first time I tried goat cheese. I was in my early 20’s and oversea’s in Albania (of all places!), visiting a friend. While there we went to visit family and they treated me like a queen since I was visiting from America! They brought out the best of everything they had and it started with fresh goat cheese and fresh bread! I had no idea what I was eating at the time, because we had communication barrier, but I new I loved it!
I returned home and a few months later I began waitressing at a little Italian restaurant. Low and behold, it was on the menu! I was in heaven. Goat cheese has a very pungent taste, it is very creamy in texture and oh so delicious. A little goes a long way in terms of flavor!
I actually made this for dinner the other night, but it is definitely a breakfast meal as well and makes great leftovers for lunch.
