I'm having a good time hanging out with my family and friends, dancing, eating, making a few jewelry projects for my mom and sleeping in.
Since many of you liked my "recipe" for Fig salad with goat cheese, arugula and pickled onions, here's another idea for what to do with the same ingredient PLUS French baguette: Fig & Goat Cheese Baguette.
This is an incredibly quick sandwich to make and it's portable: in fact, I packed it on my flight to Seattle! It was so much better than the food I could have purchased at the DCA.
French baguette, sliced lenghtwise
best balsamic vinegar you can get, reduced till it's syrupy
1. Slightly grill French baguette on your panini maker. If you don't have one, just use a skillet or a toaster.
2. Build your sandwich: bread, cheese, figs, arugula, onions, balsamic reduction, bread.
3. Using a panini grill, grill the sandwich for about 5 minutes. Cut in half. Eat or pack for later.
When you travel, what food do you pack with you? I'm talking more about a meal and not snacks. Please share: maybe I'll use your ideas on my flight back from Seattle to DC!
