Corned Beef & Chevre Cheese Spread

Corned Beef & Chevre Cheese Spread ~ Sumptuous Spoonfuls #cheese #recipe

I don’t know what it is about travelling, but even after a short time away from home, I arrive to find myself STARVED for cheese and vegetables. My daughter and I made a quick trip to my niece’s dance competition last weekend and after arriving home, bringing in our things and saying hi to the cats, the first thing that came to my mind was a deep craving for cheese and fresh vegetables. I had meant to work out, but my body was telling me strongly that I needed to eat first. Hey, it had been 4 hours since we’d eaten … but all I’d been doing is sitting in the car! Really, was it THAT pressing?

Well, apparently it was because I was rummaging through the fridge the instant I got home, searching for some cheese … the corned beef from Friday had to get involved, and a few other things came along for the ride … then I noticed my garlic plants had made a beautiful little swirl to top it off. I totally had to capture that beautiful swirl on camera with my new found cheese spread …

So I found myself munching on crackers, carrots and cheese, with a big glass of water to rehydrate me, while my daughter gobbled up some of her favorite yogurt. It was a fun trip … but oh, it feels so good to be home!

    Driving in car always gives me the munches. Maybe it is the boredom of the 4 hour ride that did you in . I am glad you had this craving as this sounds a fun and easy appetizer to try. I would love it with carrot sticks, that part is kind of healthy, right? Take care, BAM

  2. Someone I followerd tweeted about this. This is ace! Never thought of adding corned beef to a spread?! This is probably the most creative hummus-esque spread I’ve seen in a while, and without any fancy ingredients like anchovies tinned in extra virgin olive oil flown specially from Spain.

  5. It’s always interesting what we crave when we are away from home. Cheese and veggies always sound good to me. Your creative corned beef addition definitely sounds interesting.
