I’ll take even the tiniest bit of a chill in Florida around the holidays! It makes it feel more like the holiday season I was used to growing up in Illinois.
Our chilly evening walk took place after dinner… a very good dinner featuring bacon!
Today I went to the grocery store hungry which meant I left with an inordinate amount of chocolate, cheese and bacon. Shopping on an empty stomach always prompts me to buy anything that looks great in the moment and today that was bacon!
Tonight’s dinner centered around the bacon but also included fresh produce and creamy Chavrie goat cheese!
Ryan and I made bacon, tomato, goat cheese and arugula sandwiches on toasted honey wheat bread. (The arugula made me miss my favorite arugula, feta and watermelon salad from this summer!)
The goat cheese spread like silk on the hot, toasty bread!
Our sandwiches were served with a side of (oversalted) roasted asparagus.
As we ate dinner, I had the Mannheim Steamroller Christmas CD playing in the background which prompted Ryan to say that with our fancy-looking sandwiches and fancy music, it felt like we were eating at Panera… because that place is fancy, you know.
Off to hang with my little family!
