I've always been a minor fan of goat cheese. The draw for me is it's sort of exotic, bordering on gourmet-- but the game-y taste puts me off. My favorite way to eat it is to roll it in walnuts, warm it slightly and place on top of a balsamic vinaigrette dressed green salad. It adds the protein, lots of flavor and for only 70 calories an ounce with 6 grams of fat it's a better option than most cheeses.
While visiting TX we hit up the local Costco. There I discovered a very large log of soft goat cheese. It was gigantic in comparison to the small logs I normally buy. And the price--a pittance in comparison. It came home with us that day.
And when I spied my son's local raw honey I seized my chance to try a food pairing I'd seen on a French blog.
Slice the goat cheese--it will crumble somewhat, not a problem--and place it on a plate. Then drizzle liberally with honey. Sprinkle with walnut pieces.
What a delectable combination. Unfortunately--or fortunately, depending on your perspective--I was the only one who really adored it.
Little by little, over the course of several days, I ate almost the whole log of goat cheese all by my lonesome.
It's a good thing for me I don't have access to Costco and giant logs of goat cheese.
