Course after course - and still an easy dinner

This is one of my favorite ways to eat. I just got what was fresh at the market and made a bunch of small courses for dinner when my friend Maureen was visiting this weekend. We started off with some padrones - not at all spicy except for the last one on the plate that I ate! Then our next course was baby grilled zucchini, tossed with garlic olive oil and s&p - too cute! Next was one of my all time favorites Grilled Figs with Goat Cheese and Prosciutto. For our final course I had a medium sized pile of tomatoes leftover on my counter (from MY plants) so I sauteed a chopped onion, a red pepper and a carrot then added the chopped tomatoes and cooked for about 40 min. I put it all through the food mill and when serving added just a little heavy cream. Topped with some sliced bread that I fried in my leftover olive oil from the padrones and our meal was complete - completely yummy that is!

Post Note: I sent Rich to the store for the chevre and he bought the Redwood Hill Green Chili version - made it slightly spicy and totally good with the figs!
