It happened again. After a hectic week we woke up with no yogurt, oatmeal, eggs, cereal or other breakfast items in the house. So we improvised with a cheese plate with nuts and fruit. Since it is fall, we no longer have peaches, berries, cherries and plums, our favorites, so we used mandarin oranges and pears. We also had leftover sheep’s cheese from a dish we made last week and a soft, mild cheese from Galicia. 

  • 1 mandarin orange, peeled
  • 1 pear, peeled
  • 1 handful assorted nuts (walnuts, almonds)
  • A few slices of different cheeses (Parmesan, Manchego, goat cheese, cheddar etc. )

Arrange fruits, nuts and cheeses on a plate. Serves 1.
