Food porn

Lately I have been spending a lot of time looking at food on Pinterest. Maybe it's because I have been doing the whole Weight Watchers thing for too long, I don't know. Anyway, last night I decided to make my traditional girl's night a bit more special and prepared some of the truly awesome things I had seen for my guests.



For example meat balls filled with mozzarella. It's ridiculous how delicious they are!



Asparagus, wrapped in a sheet of phyllo pastry that has been sprinkled with grated goat cheese. To soften it up slightly, I threw the asparagus into boiling water for 5 minutes before I wrapped it.



Probably most popular with my guests was this baby: a whole goat brie, covered in peach jam and wrapped in bread roll dough (you know, the instant stuff you can buy in cans...). My mouth is watering just from looking at it. I imagine it goes well with a bit of arugula salad. Not that we had salad yesterday. Or any form of healthy vegetable stuff, by the way...



For dessert we had champagne and these amazing creations. Strawberries filled with chocolate. The one bad thing you could say about chocolate covered strawberries, is that the chocolate cover so often falls off when you bite into it, and you smear it on your clothes. To prevent that from happening, I filled the chocolate into the strawberries instead! I used dark chocolate and melted it with 3 tablespoons of cream to make it softer.
