Well I think my family might just could live on goat cheese. We’ve decided that as long as we have goat cheese in the house during our remodel we’ll be fine. Because it’s great on toast, crusty bread, crackers, in eggs, hot or cold you name it and they love it. It’s better tasting than cream cheese yet spreads as easily so it’s all win there too. GOAT CHEESE equals AWESOME.

I made this spread up for lunch today, holy smokes, it was a winner. A little crusty bread, some cold fresh melon and big glasses of water and we were set. We tore out our cabinets in the kitchen today. It took a while to finish packing up a kitchen you’ve been working in for 19 years, so much stuff. I can’t believe I’ve owned this house for so long. and since I was 23! Wow so many memories in this old place.

Toasted Goat Cheese and Pesto Spread
