Sunday lunch

Satuday at Millarville we had some samples from Fairwinds Farm (in Fort Macleod, Ab 403-553-0127). They sell goats milk, yogurts, cheeses and soaps. The onion and garlic chevre was out of this world.

We bought a tub of the cheese and talked on the way home about what we would do with it. We thought about pasta, a tart, even just cheese and crackers. Sunday at lunch we decided on sandwiches. But not just any sandwiches, oh no. Goat cheese and tomato for me and cheese and smoked trout for Scott.

We had some very nice sourdough bread left over from dinner on Saturday. We toasted the bread, then spread with the cheese. I sprinkled some basil, salt and pepper on my toasts, then topped with tomatos. Scott made his sandwich simple with just the cheese and slices of smoked rainbow trout (also from Millarville). We toasted the sandwiches under the broiler for a couple of minutes, then ate.

Very simple and very good. The sourdough was crispy and tangy. The cheese was so rich, and my tomatos (also from Millarville!) were great. Scott loved his too, and the whole house smelled smokey from the fish. Yum.

I am all about some good cheese and your sandwiches look wonderful.

Sara--It's so true that sometimes the simplest meals are best. Especially when you start with good ingredients. I splurged on some really special olive oil just for dribbling over my crostini...
