I was staring at a half dozen cookbooks trying to figure out what to make tonight.
I told Chez I was cooking (she was excited...cause really, it meant grub for her!) and that I couldn't figure out what to make.
We chatted over stir fries and making sure I ate vegetables today.
Then she got crafty with the Google and came across this.
And because I had company (haw!) I needed an appetizer too.
Slice baguette, add a wedge of brie and a sliver of sun dried tomato on top. Bake at 375 for 12 minutes. Sprinkle three or four toasted pine nuts on top.
I was missing something here. I mean, the sweet sun dried tomato and the gooey brie was delicious with the crusty baked bread underneath.
Maybe some marmalade or honey?
I ad-libbed a bit from the recipe online to get more veg into my body and included some diced yellow squash and zucchini.
Since I'm usually anti-olive, I nixed those from the recipe. I also probably cooked the tomato more than the recipe folks had in mind.
Fah on them I say.
The feta really creamed out the dish into a velvetty texture. The squash had just a hint of chew left to it, and the basil and cooked tomatoes offered a familiar sweetness that was perfect with the salty brine flavor the feta gave.
