A Honey of a Good Time





This is a week where
simplicity
is in order.





I've got deadlines, conferences, and lots of family events. I love to be busy. But sometimes if I'm THIS busy, I need to find ways to breathe!!!

So in honor of breathing and simplicity, let me share one of my favorite ways to enjoy cheese
-- serve it with jam and honey and nuts and dried fruits. Yes, honey and jam! Cheese laced with a sweet is fabulous!

Think mini crisp cheesecakes!

You create little morsels that make every cheese-y bite a new experience.

[Hint: There is no specific recipe in this particular blog. You are the inventor. Look in your refrigerator. Be creative. I pulled out a jar of my stepsister's homemade jam, one of my favorite honeys -- good for antioxidants -- and a nice pungent cheese. I added some banana chips and pecans. Oh, yeah!]



Add a glass of wine. And YUMMMMMMM!


So, for those of you who might be overworked, over-scheduled, or just over anything...

Raid your refrigerator.

Then take a moment for yourself.

Sit on the porch.

Drink in the sounds of the wind or rain or whatever weather is coming your way.

Eat something delicious.

Think of something that makes you smile.

And breathe. [It's the gift of life!]
