Default Foodie Finds from Foodie Weekend


Over the foodie weekend at Squeak's we went to Su la table and
Williams Sonoma. I also found a cute little kitchen shop called A Shop
for Cooks and got a few things there too.
I got some cool foodie finds that I posted on my blog.
I'm really thrilled with the measuring cups. I just might be close to
having the same amount that Christine does. ;-)

The set of flexible (Silpat) measuring cups are brilliant! Makes it
soooo much easier to add ingredients into the KA, for instance, also
pouring ingredients into a small necked jar or other container without
having to use a funnel.

The sentimental favorite was one I got at Williams Sonoma on that
Sunday: a Star Wars lunch box. My now-adult son had his room plastered
with Star Wars paraphernalia when he was in grade school, so he's
getting it for Christmas, filled with mama-made stuff.

Cool stuff. I see you like manchego cheese. It goes great with this:


Fig And Walnut Tapenade

1 cup chopped dried black mission figs
1/3 cup water
1/3 cup chopped/pitted kalamata olives
2 tablespoons olive oil
1 tablespoon balsamic vinegar
1 tablespoon capers, drained and coarsely chopped
1 1/2 teaspoon chopped fresh thyme leaves
salt
fresh ground black pepper
1/2 cup toasted and chopped walnuts

In a medium saucepan combine chopped figs and water. Cook over medium
heat, stirring occasionally until liquid has evaporated and

figs are soft. About 7 minutes.

Transfer figs to a mixing bowl. Add olives, olive oil, balsamic
vinegar, capers, and chopped thyme. Mix and add salt and pepper to
taste.

Refrigerate for 24 hours. (up to 3 days)

Bring to room temperature and mix in chopped walnuts.

Serve with Kefalograviera cheese slices on thin slices of French
Baguette bread.

Other Greek cheeses will work as will Manchego or Blues.

Do NOT serve cold.
