This month was #figlove. I have never cooked with figs before and I can’t even remember if I have had figs before. So I was a little concerned. I did not want to make some large dish and then not like the figs. Then I found this appetizer/side dish item. With cheese and walnuts. I love cheese and nuts, so I thought this would be a place to start with figs.
This is crazy! I improvised! Normally, I strictly follow recipes. I am just not confident that I can alter something and it will still taste good. But today I did not have a recipe and so I was spontaneous.
AND IT WORKED!!!!! Ok, to start for #sundaysupper we are making something from Katie Workman’s cookbook. I don’t have the cookbook so I had to use one of the recipes that is online already. She has a parsley, lemon, rosemary roast chicken recipe that I thought might taste good grilled. Not to mention there is no way I am going to turn on the oven in this heat. (Also, I used parsley instead of rosemary. I forgot to buy rosemary.)
This was fantastic!! My friend Leslie, who I cook with all the time, has been wanting to make risotto. It takes a bit of time so we wanted to make sure we had a lot of time to make it. I plan to make this again soon! Or another type of risotto, I mean it was amazing!!
