Tapas Nights; Toast Mornings


Last night Parrish and I wanted to celebrate. He had worked really hard yesterday and then went to a killer interview, and I wanted to surprise him with a special supper. Parrish is Italian, and he loves sliced meats and sharp cheeses. So I prepared a simple and satisfying meal: Tapas!


Robusto shreds, Triple Cream Brie, Roasted Garlic & Onion Jam, Roasted Red Pepper Jelly, Applegate Farms thin sliced Pepperoni, and Warm Olive Medley.

While I assembled the cutting board, Parrish toasted slices of Whole Foods Gluten Free Sandwich Bread.

SO good. I love Triple Cream. It is like the butter of brie's.

Warm olives. Tasty.

We pretty much finished off the entire board. We had a few slices of bread and a handful of olives left over. So this morning I was inspired by the slices of toast. For the first time, I made Gluten Free French toast!

For the batter I used 1/4 cup fat free French Vanilla creamer (yeah…I didn’t have any milk), one egg, and a dash of cinnamon. Soak the bread on both sides and cook in a hot pan until crispy.

So good! I haven’t had French Toast in over a year!

Anyone have any recipes for a savory tomato tart? Parrish just harvested a huge bowl of tomatoes from the garden!

Nothing smells better than warm syrup in the morning! The only thing that could possibly compete is the smell of assorted meats, cheeses, and olives at night!
