It just might be.
Oh social media. I wish you hadn't been born. Is that too George Bailey of me to say? 'Tis the season. It's not that I want social media to go away. I truly just can remember a time when I was little that I could do something and not have the world immediately know about it. That said, I do want to share this sometimes seemingly charmed world I live in.
I think a blog may do the trick. It would give me a place to share with those who may want to know what I'm up to, but wouldn't alert them every time I sneeze. (Thank you).
For instance, today I received a package that I look forward to each year. A box of pears. This comes from a client who has become a friend. As soon as they arrive it's game on for Caramelized Pear and Brie Grilled Cheese. You can count on Whitney Bond to show us how it should be done.
So I think that seals my plans for the evening. Brie is a must for tonight. Here is the recipe for the rest of you.
1/2 sourdough baguette4 tbsp butter1 large pear (peeled and sliced)1 tbsp brown sugar3 oz brie cheese
Start by placing 2 tbsp of butter in a large skillet over medium heat.Once butter has melted add the sliced pears to the skillet.Then add the brown sugar to the pears.Cook for 5 minutes or until pears are caramelized.While the pears are caramelizing begin thinly slicing the baguette and brie cheese.Prepare each sandwich by spreading the tops of each slice of bread with the remaining butter, then layering with a slice of brie cheese.When the pears are ready place them on top of the brie cheese.Add another slice of brie cheese and buttered bread on top and grill on the stove top over medium heat for 2-3 minutes per side.
