Stacey and I were able to get together the other day for a quick lunch and to spend sometime together before the big move. While I was at the store I pick up some figs and goat cheese. I have an old friend from high school that posted a picture on Instagram of her’s that she was grilling and they looked great so I decided to give it a try. They were fantastic! I love how they opened up also, they looked like flowers and the flavor was just as good. I drizzled some reduced balsamic on them and it was great!
These would make a great appetizer for a summer cocktail party or a quick and easy dessert.
