Running Dirty. Eating Clean. Loving Life.

Brown Bagging it January 24th

This week I made an incredible find at my local grocery store.  Cranberry cinnamon goat cheese.  I’m pretty sure I squealed like a little girl on Christmas morning right there at the imported cheese case.  I love cheese.  No seriously, I really really love cheese.  Every time I drive across Wisconsin, those little road side cheese chalets scream for me to stop at them.  Except the cheese and taxidermy place on the way to River Falls.  That place just creeps me out.

Also on sale were bosc pears and spinach.  You know what that means….. pear and spinach salad with raspberry vinaigrette.   I added in a little sliced onion, some honey roasted pecans, and of course, some chunks of goat cheese heaven.  The result was one of my favorite salads made even more tasty by the sweetness of the cranberries and cinnamon offsetting the bite of the goat cheese.  It was, as the scorekeeper at tonight’s game called it, “The Dinner of Champions.”
