Every once in a while members of a running club, that I am a member of, gather for a finger-food potluck. Being a food-lover, I thoroughly enjoy these occasions. What surprises me the most is the selection of “unhealthy” foods and beer that flow at these things. These runners are all bones and a little skin. They amaze me!
The question arose today before I went to our annual gathering, “What should I bring?” As I usually do when I don’t have a plan, I looked in the pantry, fridge, and various counters cluttered with nibbles of this or that left from a previous meal. I found:
- 1 green apple
- 2/3 loaf of Pan Marino bread from Big River (This bread is SO GOOD! It has fresh rosemary in it and a nice layer of sea salt on the crust.)
- 1 big block of Tillamook Cheddar Cheese
“Perfect.” I thought, a platter of bread, cheese and fruit! Nothing fancy, but off I went slicing, coring and arranging. Of course, you can see the results.
If you are ever hungry and don’t know what to eat, just take a look around the pantry and be creative! I hope you enjoy!
