Another 'goal' this year was to try cooking things I have never eaten before. Recently, I've fallen for eggplant. For summer into fall, I'm collecting recipes for figs. I loved fig newtons as a kid and I love fig trees, so I'm pretty sure I will love other things with figs, too. Know any good fig recipes?
Here are some inspiring fig photos I've found:
ming thompson's layer cake with fig compote (design sponge)
proscuitto wrapped figs (food network)
fig and almond tart (giada de laurentiis)
goat cheese and fig salad (easy french food.com)
If you want some info on the background of figs and how to store them, read this. On Tuesday, we will be spending the day apple picking at Riley's Farm and Oak Glen. It may be a bit warm, but it will be good to see trees and pick some ripe fruits and veggies. I'm also going to make Isabella model my new infinity scarf for girls (I don't think she'll mind).
