I've been OBSESSED with cheese lately, craving it something fierce.
Now, you may be thinking… what's the big deal? Just eat some cheese. But I'm here to tell you, I have a cheese problem.
Once I start, I can't stop.
I haven't bought a block of cheese in nearly 6 years because of this problem. I used to sit down with a hunk of cheddar, a knife and some crackers. Before I knew it, *poof* ¾ the block would be gone
Now I stick with mostly pre-shredded cheese and the Laughing Cow. Both help me with some much needed portion control.
Sad, I know.
If you've been following me for some time, you probably know my snack philosophy--It's always more satisfying to make than to grab. I needed to find a way to appease these most recent cheese cravings.
I could have easily grabbed a Mini Babybel, ate it in 2 seconds, but then where would I be?
Left. Wanting. More. That's where.
Instead, I took a few minutes, looked in the pantry for nuts, grabbed some fresh mint from the garden and had fun trying a completely new flavor combination for me. And it was interesting, in a good way! You get the creaminess from the cheese, the sweetness of the blueberry, the saltiness of the pistachio and finally the bright freshness from the mint!
- 1 Mini Babybel Light
- 9 blueberries
- 9 pistachios
- 9 fresh mint leaves
- 9 tooth picks
Cut the Mini Babybel into 9 small squares and build 9 little "bites" by layering one of everything on each toothpick.
