"cooking" with Laura:

I've been making David little plates of various items to go with his Scotch for dinner the last few days. We've decided that if I was ever a cook, I would be on the garnish station. I don't actually enjoy cooking, but I do enjoy putting different flavor combinations together and arranging them nicely on the plate.

Left to right: Mozzarella with salami on a toothpick, red pepper and artichoke bruschetta on water crackers with pimento and oregano, herbed goat cheese and salami with parsley, black olive tapenade on a water cracker, black diamond cheddar cheese spread with salami, salmon pinwheels on cracker with cream fraiche, about 8 varieties of olives, a few mushrooms and a caper berry, caviar with cream fraiche, pickle, salami, habanero goat gouda and Beecher's just jack cheese on toothpicks, toasted pecans and lastly, Bowmore cask strength Scotch in a teacup.


  1. That is one of my favorite ways to eat. You could cook for me anytime! However, I might want to upgrade the teacup to a mug though.

  2. If you had a mug of bowmore, you would not be in to work the next day, that's for sure!

  3. I'm of the "arranging" food persuasion, too. That's why I'm always in charge of the guacamole at a gathering.


I try to be honest, fair and keep a good sense of humor in my posts--I would appreciate if you follow the same policy with your comments.
