Why Thursday’s the Best Day!

Let me preface this post by saying the following; I am a girl.

(please disregard the fact that my father is wearing a robe in the background and you can see some of his thigh)

Yes, I cuss a lot, I’m not overly emotional, and I think more like a boy than I do like a girl….but I am indeed a girl.

See! I can hold flowers and wear pretty dresses and look DARN good doing it.
This is kind of an old picture, but I swear I’ve worn dresses recently. Recently = Christmas day.

I know what you’re thinking. “Jackie. I am aware you are a girl. Get to the point. This is stupid.”
Okay, fine! I like girly shows.
I don’t care that any man within ear shot of The Millionaire Matchmaker wants to run for the hills!
Anything that involves a “housewife” of some kind, I’m in! (except if said housewife is from Atlanta…who’s with me?)
Do I get to watch a woman get a make over? Or try on wedding dresses? Or get in a fight on national television with another woman? I’ll watch it weekly.
I don’t care if it rots my brain. I paid good money to educate that brain with a college degree and I will do with it what I want!
One day of the week will always be girls night. Girls night meaning, Sarah walks over from next door, we make yummy snacks, drink yummy wine, and kill about 967 brain cells watching an hour of a girly show. Currently the show is Real Housewives of Beverly Hills. And let me just say one thing; Kelsey Grammar’s ex wife is a crazy person and I hate her with every fiber of my being.


Anyway, I realized I had no recipes for appetizers so I figured I should post a recipe I made a few weeks ago.

Chevre Stuffed Figs


About 10 figs
4 oz chevre (goats cheese)
1 package (about 10 slices) prosciutto

Take your figgys out of the fridge and take a picture of them.

Slice the stems off the tops of the figs. Then slice them in half vertically.

I love how surprisingly bright figs are on the inside. So pretty.

Take a little pinch (about 1/2 a tsp) of chevre and push it into the fig halves.

Rip the prosciutto slices into thirds. You only need enough to wrap around the fig once or twice.

Carefully wrap the thin prosciutto around the cheesified figs.

Place figs, cheese side up, on a parchment paper lined cookie sheet.

Bake at 350 degrees for about 15 minutes, or until they are slightly browned and juicy looking.

Consume while watching a show that makes you dumber.

Tonight is the night that the ol’ boyfriend and I join forces and agree on a show we both love. Top Chef All Stars. I’ve always liked Top Chef, but I’m pretty sure this season is my favorite so far. I’m sure we’ll make something delicious and I’ll talk about it either tonight or tomorrow, so stay tuned!
