After a long work day, a friend calls and says they're in the neighborhood, and would it be ok if they stopped by on their way home? All I want is to unwind with laughter over a beer, so I say was, "Heck yes!" Then the realization sets in that I don't have any snacks to offer. I mentally catalog my refrigerator and I have a wheel of brie cheese, I think I have crackers, and some baby bella mushrooms(you know...the brown ones). I can make something work.
I get home, kick my shoes off, and head to the kitchen. I may as well have a beer, while I get some things together...hee hee.
The good news is, I have a fig tree and I was able to get some before the chickens got to them! Also, I have local honey from a friend bee keeper. Bam! Now that's the way you throw together a yummy snack...and QUICK too!
