Getting Figgy With It

Last week we got figgy for the first time.

As part of October’s Culinary To-Do I had to go head to head with these purple beauties:

We decided to make a delicious fig and prosciutto pizza. And every last bite was outstanding. The prosciutto, the cheese, and the figs.

Oh the figs. They are beautiful, photogenic, and expensive. And like I mentioned before I have more fun playing with them than eating them.

Until next season my little figlets!

I intended to roast a chicken this week but as soon as I got back from the grocery store on Friday Matt and I had a little giggle – I bought all of the things I needed to bake a whole chicken, from the spices to the sides – except I forgot one thing: the actual chicken!

Guess what’s on the grocery list for next week?

  1. hee hee… I have done that before… forgotten the BIG ingredient. 😉

    I love figs, and yes, they are so pretty… that pizza sounds gooood…

  2. I’m happy you liked it! I had some figs this week, but they went bad on me. I think they’re pretty much out of season now though.

    I really want to bake a whole chicken or turkey too, kinda scary, but can do it! Can’t wait to see how it turns out.

  3. Haha! Can’t say I haven’t done that before!

    This afternoon I actually went on the computer for a specific reason, got distracted and never did what I wanted to in the first place! I’m getting old…… 🙂

  4. Oh figs.. fresh figs are perhaps one of my most favorite foods. they are just SO GOOD. my great grandparents had a fig tree when I was little and i’d pick them and eat them straight off the tree.. talk about heaven.

  5. Oh figs are my favourite! They’re so sweet and delicious. AND an aphrodesiac!
