    This is seriously a combination of so many of my favorite things, but #1 is goat cheese! I wonder about people who don’t like it! Don’t think we should trust them! 😉

    Goats cheese is a real favourite of ours, that sour salty creamy thing is perfect in so many dishes. But perfect paired with tomatoes and ham, lovely sounding Lunch!
