Kimi came over for dinner last night. And to make things easy for myself in the kitchen, I made a pot of soup and sandwiches as our meal. I saw some nicely ripe heirloom tomatoes at the market so I decided to make roasted heirloom tomato soup and turkey cheese sandwich with fig chutney. The sandwich was a nice dunker for my soup.
A while back, I bought a jar of Roasted Garlic Onion & Fig Jam. I used it in everything I could think of. Sandwiches, salad dressings, quick pan sauces, and on my cheese platters. The jam is long gone so I was inspired to make an at-home version. Since figs are in season —why not?
I love the smell of baked goods in the oven. I noticed I had some crumbled goat cheese leftover from a dinner party so I decided to make good use of it along with some beer in the fridge. Enjoy!
