Sometimes I think as people, we are very much like a quilt - a patchwork of squares of experiences and memories, held together by a mix of shabby and perfect stitching.
And the order I get, when a memory fleetingly passes through my mind, it does so with such intensity that time becomes meaningless and the memory remains so vivid like it was just yesterday.
Food makes me happy. It can also makes me pensive. As I'm sure it does for you too.
After all if you think about it, how many of your most precious memories have a lovely meal or a food associated with it?
Quite a many, I should think.
The friendship that gave me my first taste of these goat cheese with balsamic soaked red peppers on a perfectly crusty French bread, has long gone.
The memory of the perfect medley of flavors, hasn't.
This is a fabulous appetizer with happy colors that make it perfect for a holiday table. Lovely toasted artisanal bread topped with balsamico soaked roasted red peppers on a bed a goat cheese.
It's so delicious, it's a taste of happy with each bite!
