Because you know I don’t have it in me to cook light (even when it’s 90 degrees), I’m taking this Ina Garten appetizer to the neighbor’s house tonight. And listen up: be not afraid. This is the easiest thing to make in the world — check out these few ingredients — and it looks and tastes like a masterpiece. My vegetarian friends could easily make this with something other than soppressata (if you do, please share!)
1 package (2 sheets) frozen puff pastry, such as Pepperidge Farm
2 tablespoons Dijon mustard
12 thin (not paper thin) slices soppressata salami (3 1/2 inches in diameter)
6 ounces Gruyere cheese, grated
1 egg beaten with 1 tablespoon water, for egg wash
On the other side of the wagon, dearlordhavemercy I heard THE WORST SONG EVER on the radio this morning. Totally forgot this even existed, but I have to report that I knew almost every word. I imagine my mother and my aunts in the 70’s, listening to these ridiculous lyrics, and wonder what in the hell they thought.
