It’s no surprise to learn that I am a major food nerd and enjoy a good meal (or two or three). I am easily delighted by food these days. But I know something is truly delicious when it makes me laugh. I know it sounds weird. But sometimes I find myself sitting at a table, trying a bite of something, and am so overwhelmed with the joy of it all that my reaction is to laugh. These apricots made me giggle.
After a few minutes, when the sweet little halves had grill marks on them, I flipped them over and put a little nugget of Samish Bay cheddar cheese in the middle of them where the pit used to be.
A few minutes later, I put them on my plate, drizzled honey on them (took some pictures of them outside where the light was better and had to fight off a chicken that almost got them for herself), and proceeded to sit at the table and eat myself into silly contentment. Six minutes of effort was never more worth it.
