Honey rosemary goat cheese bread
So I’m on the facebook. I’m a bit lazy and telephonobhobic, and I like the fact that I can keep in touch with old friends from every point in my disjointed life with very little effort. And I like the vagaries of the facebook shuffle. I like the fact that disparate friends of mine will post status updates that echo each other very closely, even though they have no actual connection to each other. And I like the odd contrasts. The other day, one friend posted a meme (I believe it’s called) of an embroidered message that said, “Fuck your fascist beauty standards,” (or something close to that). And another friend posted lots of shots of half-naked conventionally beautiful young women. It struck me as very funny! Of course, at this time, I could go on and on about the objectification of women, and body image…and I probably will some day. But for now…let’s have a playlist!! A playlist of songs celebrating unconventional beauty. If you know me at all, you’ll know that I love songs on this subject, and I’ve been mentally compiling just such a playlist for years. And yet somehow, today, all I can come up with is four (brilliant) versions of My Funny Valentine, plus a handful of other songs. It will come to me eventually!! I’ve made the playlist collaborative, so add what you like!!
This bread turned out really well! I wanted something to go with a soup, but I didn’t even think of it till 5 pm, so it had to be quick. It had to be a quick bread! This bread has a bit of olive oil, a bit of honey, some rosemary and some goat cheese. It’s pleasantly ambiguous – it could be sweet or savory, however you’d like to use it! Nice with soup at dinner, nice with coffee in the morning.
Here’s that playlist! Add what you’d like!!
