Late Night TV Snacking

With wine, of course.

Strawberries are one of the twelve fruits and vegetables that I always make sure to get organic. It makes sense, doesn’t it, that all kinds of bad stuff would lodge in those tiny pits? And that skin! Thin, translucent, more permeable than a teenager with self-esteem issues! Taste-wise, I prefer the smaller, redder, less genetically modified, berries over their bigger, more turgid, less flavorful, GMO’d cousins.

Three kinds of cheese: cheddar, swiss, and goat. If you could only have one kind of cheese for the rest of your life, what would it be? Mine would be cheddar, even though I love brie. Because you can have cheddar plain. With brie, you always want to assemble its friends together for a party in your mouth –figs, preserves, breads and crackers. Have you done this delightful cheese personality quiz yet?

Blood oranges are so dramatic! Sometimes they taste awesome, but as some of you might be able to tell just by looking at this picture, this one was not very sweet nor soft and luscious.

Peanuts are actually a kind of legume, and not nuts at all. Didja know?

Also on the platter: olives and cornichons.

And on the TV? Probably “Diners, Drive-ins, and Dives.” Guy is the best!
