Earlier this week was a perfect example of simple hospitality, when our Canadian friends came to central Oregon for the Eclipse 2017, and drove 2 hours out of their way to see our family!  How honored we felt, as we sat together on the back deck – my favorite place to unwind – in the great outdoors.

Driving up 2 hours from their camping spot, we greeted our friends and gave them a mini tour of our home. Of course Alder and Haggis were the center of attention at first, with new toys and treats.

I really don’t mind casual get-togethers, because they take the pressure off of “perfect” and formal.  (Always love a “just because” hostess gift.)

So great to catch up since it had been 3 years since we’d seen our friends, we enjoyed a light summer appetizer, Goat Cheese, Honey Crisp Apples, Honey, Rosemary Thins!

Honey crisp apples are the best for any appetizer because they are always crisp, light, and sweet. I don’t buy any other kind of apple when I’m making an appetizer, because I’ve been disappointed too many times.

Keep on hand goat cheese and your favorite crackers, and fresh rosemary. Our rosemary is growing in our skinny garden beds!

A delicious HIT for summer, fall, and winter or holiday entertaining!

  9. I don’t understand the step #4 chees and honey. The previous step was to mix the cheese with the milk. Do you mean to spread the honey over the cheese already on the cracker?
    Sorry I guess I missed something!
    Thank you for the recipe! Sound delicious!
    Merry Christmas!
