Chèvre Apricot Quesadillas
I've had very little inspiration for cooking lately. The move has really begun to take it's toll, and I'm feeling very tired, and very much not in the mood for anything kitchen-related. I hope it will turn soon. Anyway, I did make these really easy appetizers when mom came over for dinner a few nights ago. It's really easy. You need tortillas, a good round of chèvre cheese, some plump dried apricots, and a little bit of runny honey. If you happen to have some fresh rosemary, I bet that'd fit in nicely, too.
Just mash up the cheese, with a little bit of olive oil if you need to, until it's spreadable. Spread it on the tortillas. Cut the apricots into smaller pieces, and sprinkle these over the quesadillas. Drizzle over a bit of honey, and fold each tortilla into half. Grill - either on a barbecue or a contact grill (that's what we used this time) until you get some pretty brown marks. Then devour - preferrably with a nice glass of crisp white wine.
