Today is my stepdaughter, Britney’s, birthday. Whenever possible, I like to make a special dinner to celebrate each child and grandchild’s birthday.
Yesterday, as I was deciding on the menu, I thought it was a great opportunity to make the Marinated Feta recipe I have on my website. I was going to make lasagna and thought, why not more cheese!
So, last night, I prepared the feta and the lasagna.
I used a medium-intensity Extra Virgin Oil Olive for the recipe and used fresh rosemary but I didn’t have fresh thyme, so I just used my dried thyme. I like to adjust my recipes to what I already have at home.
I especially loved knowing that the Olive Oil I used to marinate the feta was going to be used for the salad dressing. I wouldn’t have wanted to waste all that delicious olive oil!
I’m happy to report that everyone loved the Marinated Feta. It was super delicious. I served it with toasted French bread, which was generously drizzled with olive oil. It was a perfect companion for the feta.
Do you have an appetizer recipe that uses Olive Oil? I’d love to hear about them!
Happy Valentine’s Day to you all!
Ciao for now,
