Crostini with Salami, Gouda, and Lemon Ricotta
Sometimes I think Target and Trader Joe's must be partners of some sort, partners in sucking all the money out of my bank account. Do you think I can press charges for their thievery?
Can I also presses charges against daughter for stealing sleep?
How about charges against my husband for not cleaning the house right?
Can I press charges against my cats for assault with the meows when I pass by? Or how about that one time when Bella decided the only logical place to cough up a fur ball was the couch - whole house FULL of tile and the couch is the spot? Seriously dude?
How about the workplace? What kind of charges can I press there...How about the parking spots are to dang small charges? I need a can opener some days. Another charge, how about Starbucks is not close enough for me to make it a full 9 hours a day charge?
Well if I can't press charges lets just eat baby, on to the appetizer.
Delightfully borrowed from MUAH
1 French Baguette, thinly sliced
Olive Oil Spray
Small tub of Ricotta
Zest of 1 Lemon
Salami, sliced thin (I used TJ's Pinot Grigio White Wine Salami)
Gouda Cheese, sliced or cubed (I used TJ's Goats Milk Gouda)
Spray your thinly sliced crostini on each side with your cooking spray. I used Pam Olive Oil Spray. Over a medium high heat, pan-fry the crostini on each side until lightly browned. Set Aside.
In medium sized bowl mix your ricotta and lemon zest. Next comes assembly. I recommend assembly at the last minute, the crostini can soften up with the ricotta mixture.
Assembly goes like this
Have a super weekend!
