Well, sorry these are Figs.
These are Prosciutto wrapped Figs.
I like when recipes are really just put togethers.
You buy some dates or figs.
You drizzle balsamic vinegar on top of them.
You layer goat cheese on top of that.
You sprinkle a TINY bit of Crushed red pepper on the cheese.
Then you wrap it in a piece of thin prosciutto.
Broil it for a bit till the fancy bacon is crispy.
Fireman loved these.
I made them for Zach who prefers dates but enjoyed the figs.
I didn't even try them...
We are almost 2 months into 2015 and I have kept a resolution.
I gave up beef and pork.
Oh and lamb, but I don't eat lamb, or duck or pheasant or quail or venison.
My dad was/is a hunter. I grew up being asked to try the game he shot on Sundays. Yuck. I know what people mean when they say something tastes gamey.
Perhaps my father was a bad shot and the animal suffered and so the taste was full of adrenaline.
Perhaps my mom didn't cook the game right.
Perhaps knowing he was in the garage cutting the heads off the pheasants and smelling the blood was enough to turn me off.
No matter, I like my animal meats well processed.
Giving up beef and pork makes my tummy feel better.
This won't last....I've done this before.
I'm one of those all or nothing types.
The minute I give in to bacon or a hot dog, because those are the two that tempt me the most,
then it is over.
I'll keep it going as long as I can.
I'm waiting on my cholesterol levels today...
I think my week of project jumping is over.
I found my book , 200 Knitted Blocks and picked one.
This is going to be a cowl.
Little Knots is the 4 row repeat pattern.
I can see what I'm doing on size 8s and using sport weight.
Wahoo! I'm a happy knitter again.
Fireman and I went to donate blood yesterday.
Giving up meat made my iron count too low so I had to sit it out.
I guess since I'm off red meat I need to take a vitamin.
I know I should know better.
The sign there said 38% of the population can donate blood and less than 10% donate.
Oh and there are new rules. If you get a tattoo you are no longer automatically ineligible for a year.
So that's the meat of the matter.
Chew on that for awhile, Okay?
