So, as I sit an watch the 'repeat' of the Royal Wedding, I'll go back in time to last Sunday, when we re-instated 'wine and cheese Sundays'.
To go along with our selection of cheeses, I decided to make an onion tart. I even made the pie crust from scratch, even though the recipe actually suggested using refrigerated dough.
It turned out all golden and delicious. It is amazing how delicious some onions and cheese can be.
And, the cheese... Clockwise, from the upper left corner: St.Andre triple creme (still my latest fav); Trader Joe's 'spotlight cheese' from April, Red Dragon cheddar with grainy mustard and ale (yum); some Jarlsberg (mild, nutty, great with the apples); Fontina, which i just threw in there because I had some left over from a homemade mac&cheese I had made earlier in the week; Cave Aged Gouda, a new cheese at T.J.'s (smooth and creamy with a fairly strong rind); and the little squares are New Zealand Cheddar, because Hubby loves cheddar, and I thought we'd try a new one (a fairly mild cheddar).
I like a little meat and apples with my cheese plates. That one is an artisinal salami made with pinot grigio.
And since then, I'm just working. I'm trying to keep up with my house cleaning/organizing, which is going okay, but my major projects (the basement and studio) are a bit overwhelming. I took the afternoon to get out and hang with friends...and practice our French.
Nothing terribly exciting.
