I can explain my inability to keep my promise, really I can! You see, it took me until this past week or so to finally nail what my problem is with fruit. It's too sweet. And I like savory. So, when I started searching for "savory fruit recipes" instead of just "fruit recipes," I opened up a whole new can of fruit, so to speak.
Many fruits pair well with cheese, and peaches are a perfect example of such. For this salad, I halved and pitted a nice, ripe peach. I then grilled it cut side down on a grill pan over medium heat for about eight minutes before flipping it over and adding some crumbled goat cheese on top. I nestled each peach half in a bed of lettuce, then drizzled some balsamic vinaigrette over the top and garnished with a little cooked crumbled bacon.
It was the perfect blend of savory, sweet, tangy, salty, smoky, creamy and crunchy. Did I leave any taste bud or part of your palate untouched?
Ok, now that we've got that food business taken care of, I can move on to the announcements part of today's program.
Noooo!! It's not me, swears! My son and his wife have finally given me the go ahead to announce that they're expecting my first grandchild. Guess that would make this their first child too, if you're into such details. They found out yesterday that they're having a boy and I'm so thrilled. I'm going to quickly have to learn to knit and crochet... and make homemade baby food.... and relearn how to change a diaper! It's been so long!
