I especially do not want to cook, if, at 8pm, the temperature is still hovering near 80 degrees, which is unfortunately highly typical for my fair city. In fact, in its early days, my town was deemed a "hardship" post for foreign ambassadors due to its swamplike conditions. Deeeelightful!
Enter C Fierce's Summer Weeknight Dinner to the rescue.
Please ignore my giant thumb. It's the same size as the raspberry. That is not normal.That's crackers, goat cheese, fruit and some honey. (Sometimes there is balsamic vinegar if I'm feeling extra fancypants!) I eat this meal, or a variation of it, at least three nights a week. Especially if no one else is home and I know I'm going to just eat the goat cheese standing in front of the fridge with a spoon so why not put it on a plate in the first place, self.
Oh lord it's even bigger here ... You don't even know how hard it is to type with these things.
C Fierce's Weeknight Summer Dinner
Crackers (as many as you can get out of the cellophane wrapper without them breaking, eat the ones you broke standing over the sink)
Fruit (at least as many pieces/slices of fruit as you have crackers)
Goat cheese (way more than you think is necessary because you know you're going to eat it off the plate anyway)
Honey (a little prep-bowl-full)
Optional: Lemon juice, cracked black pepper, fancy salts, whatever the heck you think tastes good
Put the ingredients on a plate.
