Safety Recipe of the Week: Goat Cheese with Honey, Fig & Pistachios

Article provided by Melanie Taylor

The night before Easter, the table was set with care, in hopes that our Easter Dinner would soon be here. The cats were all nestled asleep in their beds while visions of colored eggs danced in their heads.

When, what to my wondering eyes should appear, but Jeff my husband, all donned in chef’s gear. He spoke not a word but went straight to his work. Now, Maple/Orange Glazed Ham! Now, Mashed Potato Casserole! Now, all the Easter fixes would appear.

Then out on the lawn there arose such a clatter. I flew like a flash to see what’s the matter. I opened the door, no stranger indeed; it’s Miss Kim with a platter – a site to behold “Goat Cheese she said with Honey, figs & Pistachios”.
The joy of our family and friends as we gathered – Happy Easter to all and enjoy a good bite!
