With warm sunny evenings on the way it’s time to start dinning out doors. I don’t know about you but I have missed sitting on our deck with my family and friends enjoying great food and each other. We’ve been hard at work here, cleaning up the yard, washing down furniture along with planting new flowers and veggies. While getting all this work done, I needed to give my work crew a little encouragement so I put together an easy, delicious appetizer made with local fresh ingredients.
I am so thankful that I have the opportunity to buy incredible foods from many farmers and craftsmen that live my area. I combined a log of rich and tangy goat cheese from The Goat Lady Dairy, sweet golden honey from my friend Bill Mullins and homemade fig jam that was a gift from my neighbor. After sprinkling on a few chopped pistachios, the result was a savory, sweet crunchy bite of goodness. The whole thing took about 10 minutes to pull together and my crew loved it! This is one appetizer you’ll find being enjoyed on my back deck all summer long…
