Hors D'oeuvres For One


Technically, hors d'oeuvres means "outrside the menu".
It should be something to tide you over for a bit, until your main meal can be served.
For a child it could mean a few crackers with peanut butter, or a small chunk of cheddar.
For a grown up, it could mean these wonderful slices of vine ripened tomatoes, schmeared with a bit of goats cheese, and topped with just a touch of garlic scape pesto. Some fresh cracked pepper tops it all, and you have an hors d'oeuvre even a child would love!

This was MY "outside the menu" treat today!

What'sYOUR favorite pre-dinner snack?

Katie...I should have clarified the "vine-ripened" tomato ingredient...they are store bought, on the vine, grown nowhere NEAR me in Michigan!

That looks great! Usually I'll grab anything handy to tide me over until mealtime.
