Audience Participation

Ok, here are the bullet points:

1.  No baby yet.  I am due today.  My daughter was born on her due date (Only 4-5% of babies come on the actual due date) and I don’t think we’ll get that lucky again.  I am scheduled to be induced on Tuesday morning if the boy hasn’t arrived before then.

2.  As a result, I am exhausted.  I have two more testing reports to write for work and then I’m done.  I may or may not go into work tomorrow for a few hours just to wrap up- it will depend on how I feel (and if the baby comes tonight).

3.  Also, as a result, I haven’t meal planned at all for this week.  As in ordered spicy Chinese food last night (and took a long walk at the zoo today) and had carrots, celery and dip tonight.  Since I haven’t planned, I have made THREE trips to two different grocery stores in as many days.  So we have staples- milk, eggs, cheese, cereal, etc.- but no real ingredients for meals.  It means that I sort of wandered aimlessly through the grocery stores, picking up and putting down various items.  I had forgotten how much prepared or just-add-water food there is out there (and was reminded of the long-running joke in my house growing up, based on an old Sally Forth comic strip, “Do you want something from a bag or from a box?  From the freezer or the fridge?”).

4.  The best part of my wanderings is that I found this:

Yes, you’re reading it right.  Chocolate goat cheese.  I was curious enough to spend $8 on it.  I tasted it and it’s smooth, creamy, tangy and sweet, all at the same time.

My problem?  I have no idea what to do with it.  A google search yielded a few ideas- goat cheese canapes, truffles and frosting- but these do no appeal.  So this is where you all come in.

What would you do with it?  Let me know in the comments and maybe I’ll try it.

  1. I can hardly wait to hear about your little guy’s safe arrival! Please post as soon as you can – but also take care of yourself and give yourself as much time as possible to sleep! I wish you and your hubs and daughter the very best! I wish you all enough. . .

  2. Eating it straight up is ok but I feel something more creative could be done. Toast is intriguing… should it go on something rich like brioche or something more sturdy/hardy like wheat?

    Thanks for the good baby wishes!
