There are a lot of fruits and vegetables I like, but figs are a few on the top of my list.
I should probably put it on my “love” list, not “like”.
So when I found organic black figs being sold at a store yesterday, I had to buy them.
They are SO good!!
I might have talked about this before, but I didn’t know what good figs taste like until I was vacationing at a resort in Mexico a few years ago.
They always had a plate of fresh fruits at the lobby every morning, and their figs were out of this world good!
That was when I realized that a few times I had had figs in my life up to that point were mediocre, to say the least (sadly).
I do like “organic” but it is not a huge issue for me when I choose my produce, but when it comes to figs I do choose organic ones without hesitation.
They just seem to taste better.
Luckily I found the last one in the freezer.
It already looks good simply toasted.
But wait to see how it gets dressed up.
A thick spread of homemade awesome white creamy cheese.
I don’t know the best way to describe this vegan cheese, but it’s kind of a combination of feta, cream cheese, and goat cheese.
It’s got wonderful tanginess, creaminess, and a unique flavor, which can be found in all the three types of cheese I mentioned.
I could eat so many bagels just with this spread!
It was then loaded with fresh figs and blueberries.
The time period when we can get fresh figs (from the west coast) in the Midwest is limited.
So I am intending to enjoy them to the fullest while I can.
Breakfast is ready.
This is my first blue plate I recently purchased from a store that was having a big closing sale.
I wasn’t sure how the food would look on it, but that turned out not to be an issue.
This blue color really makes food looks great.
I wish I had bought a few more pieces in this color.
