Sometimes I actually don't feel like cooking, but the last thing I want is to go out for fast food.
Tonight I was in a funk and decided see what was in my refrigerator. Hmmm, some leftover Flat Iron Steak, some Hard Italian Salami, Rustic Pate, Goat Gouda, an Aged Gouda a bit of Brie and some of my favorite Cornichon pickles. Damn, put this on a nice plate and you would feel good about someone only charging you $16 dollars (not including service).

"House Olives"
Throw in some of my "House Olives" and you would think you were eating out. I love to buy a variety of brined olives and then toss them together with olive oil, bay leaves, corriander, peppercorns (green, black, white), fennel and red pepper flakes. I keep a jar of these around at all times since they go with virtually anything I am cooking for dinner.

Buon Appetito!

I love eating that way! It all looks delicious. I've never had goat gouda but it sounds like something I would like.

Foodycat-OMG, Goat Gouda is fantastic. The texture and taste is much different than regular gouda.

I can't wait to eat summa those!

Did you get my last email and attachment? I decided to go with a lentil salad. After posting about one, I can't stop thinking about it. :P
