Saving...savoring...



Back in September I received a very special package in the mail. It contained my absolute favorite preserves...fig. Well, I refused to use them for just our everyday toast. So I've been saving it for something...well...special.

I thought Thanksgiving might be the right time, so I bought a baguette and a really good bleu cheese with the intent to make some crostini appetizers. Uh...Thanksgiving dinner preparations got really busy, so I decided to forego the appetizers.

Since we had a late lunch/early dinner today, I got hungry a little while ago, and I remembered that I had all the ingredients to make an extraordinary snack. So I just enjoyed a fabulous plate of fig-and-bleu-cheese crostini with fruit. YUM!

So, dear LB, I am sorry to be so long letting you know just how wonderful your gift tasted. But please know that it was because it was just too special to squander on a PBJ.

It was sublime!
