Goat Cheese & Fig Crostini

Today, since my post schedule for this week has just completely been set aside, I thought it would be a good time to show off this yummy snack that Pasan and I just discovered. We were walking through Whole Foods and in the course of looking for dried cranberries , we decided we wanted to buy some figs! Sometimes the coolest things come from seeing something in the store or farmer’s market and deciding that you want to see what could be done with it.


For some reason, I had a major dumb moment because I was really apprehensive about just trying a fig without prepping it in any way. I never made the connection between figs and fig newtons, which just shows that kids need to eat more real fruit and less processed snacks! The figs were really yummy and I could have eaten all of our supply, but then Pasan had the amazing idea to buy goat cheese and make ourselves a sophisticated little snack. We’re obsessed with cheese; in fact we did several diy cheese platters with friends on our vacation last week and loved every minute of it. I didn’t love goat cheese the first time I had it but I’m glad that I gave it more chances because now I really enjoy it. My next cheese to conquer is bleu cheese (hashtag: first world problems.)


We ended up snacking on these all through dinner time, and I feel like impromptue dinners that aren’t real dinners are somewhat a right of being an adult.



If you’re like us, and by that I mean if you’re the kind of person who thinks that calling toast a “crostini” makes it tastier and cooler, then this is for you. Also if you like goat cheese and figs and light yummy snacks, it’s probably for you too.
