Olive You, Too (Kalamata Bread & Honey Balsamic Goat Cheese Spread)

With Thanksgiving approaching, I wanted to extend my heartfelt thanks to you for your visits here.  They make me smile.

Consequently, I carry that smile into the world and other folks benefit from it.  (Thought you should know that!)  So, thank you.

(And as the title implies… Olive You, Too!  xo)

Since everybody’s schedules are kicking into high gear (mine included), my next post won’t be until after Thanksgiving.  (Thought you should know that, too.)  Sometimes ya gotta keep it simple.

Speaking of which…

Honey Balsamic Goat Cheese Spread

(adapted from Taste Of Home)

1 c. Caprino cheese (or other creamy goat cheese)

1/3 c. mayonnaise (I used regular mayo)

2 Tbsp. honey

1 Tbsp. balsamic vinegar

Combine ingredients; mix until smooth. Cover and refrigerate.

.    .    .

As for the bread, it couldn’t be any simpler.

Kalamata Bread

Knead 1 1/2 to 2 cups sliced kalamata olives into this recipe and thank Ally Phillips while you’re there.  (Thanks, Ally!)

And lest I forget… lavish with Honey Balsamic Goat Cheese Spread. :)

If you don’t have time for bread baking, simply serve with baguette slices (or pita chips) and assorted olives.

Happy Thanksgiving to you ‘n yours from The Man Of Few Words n’ me.

Enjoying sharing smiles,

~ Kim
