Last night we went to Joe and Alicia’s for our neighborhood’s “Couples Mixer”. It happens about three to four times a year and we rotate who hosts. Everyone brings an appetizer and a bottle of wine. The food is always fabulous. I can’t take credit for the appetizer I brought. My sister in law Marit makes it for her parties and it’s out of this world. Besides tasting insanely good, it’s ridiculously easy to make.
Goat Cheese with Fig Butter
8 oz. package goat cheese
1 cup fig butter, warmed
1/2 cup chopped pecans
1 box Trader Joe’s Raisin Rosemary Crisps (or cracker of your choice)
1. Place goat cheese on a platter. Pour the warmed fig butter over goat cheese. Top with pecans. Serve with crackers.
Note: The above measurements can be adjusted to your liking.
Check out some of the delicious appetizers that arrived last night:
Thank you Joe and Alicia for hosting!
We actually stopped by a friend’s birthday party briefly after leaving the Mixer. Late night!
I was up before dawn this morning to see my husband and son off to the airport. My son is off to sleep away camp for a couple of weeks!
When you get up that early, you sure can get a lot done before even having breakfast!
I took my daughter to the mall to get some stuff for her camp. She wanted Red Robin for lunch. I had a grilled chicken sandwich and some fries. I couldn’t say no to the fries.
We ran some errands, stopped for Starbucks and came home. Girls day out!
What’s the best thing you ate all weekend?
