oh honey...

I don't think I have ever met a cheese I didn't like. And living in DC, I am pretty lucky to have a good selection ~ in fact, I have a "cheese history" at Cheesetique. And there's Cowgirl Creamery. And of course Blue Ridge Dairy at the farmers' market. Their mozzarella and feta is divine (I am even a convert to their smoked mozzarella). So, on sunday I picked up a chunk of the feta with the intention of trying this recipe. Now, before you think I have lost my mind, I must say it is one of the best things I have ever put in my mouth. The honey cuts the saltiness of the feta, and gives it sort of a crispy crust. I dispensed with the pita bread and decided to have it as a meal with fresh greens (sort of like a warm goat cheese salad). Wow! I kept imagining my friend Christine making her yummy noises, and saying "holy mother, this is good!"

P.S. A word on the honey...you don't have to use fancy Greek thyme honey. Mine is from some good friends in Connecticut who keep bees.

Yummmm...happy wednesday!

Brisket in Texas sounds great! (Loved being at NGA last Sun. Enjoyed Fountainbleau exhibition and gorgeous flowers around fountain in rotunda.)
