Written last Saturday: I am sitting in my house alone waiting to be picked up for a girls night. Kids are with dad at Blockbuster picking out the movies for the weekend. There was talk of Diary Of A Wimpy Kid, but who know what they will come home with. As for me, I am sitting at the computer (hello, dr. obvious) with the hum of the dishwasher running in the background listening to some Diana Krall, live. That woman knows how to soothe a soul. The song? A Case Of You. AKA- The Best One.
I have just finished wrapping up 16 pears with cheese and prociutto. Everyone is bringing an appetizer or something to share at Becca's house where we will eat, drink skinny girl margaritas and presumably play a game (since the invite stated "goofy girls game night"). I know Danielle is bringing figs with goat cheese and truffle honey. Our food will go together. On the other hand, I heard Kel, who is also going with us is bringing some salty carmel bars with sea salt. Fancy, until I heard she is putting some store bought carmel up on top of them things. Imma get crazy on up in her bidness, axing if she trying to poison us all...oh, law!
I forgot to tell you- our host Becca sprung on us that we have to talk that way tonight after we had rsvp yes. Becca is from somewhere deep in Louisiana and is one of the most well-read, smartest women I know. She also whips this sort of talk out regularly. Don't get her going, else ever body gone get doin' it too. Mmm-hmmm.
Machengo and Prociutto Wrapped Pears
there is no formal recipe for this since it is just assembled
Top a piece of pear about 1/2" thick (or peach) with a thin piece of manchengo or parmesan cheese and wrap with prociutto. I cut the fat off of mine so no one is chewing on it forever.
Its a great appetizer to bring to someones house because there is no cooking required and can be served cold or at room temperature.
