Five rules to leading a happy life:
1. Get lots of sleep
2. Drink plenty of water
3. Love freely
4. Be sincere
5. Eat cheese
Okay, so eating cheese isn’t a necessary component to being happy, but it definitely helps. If you’re vegan, or lactose intolerant, cheese might not be the answer for you. Recently for me, however, cheese has been a huge factor in my happiness. I’m pretty sure there’s a direct correlation between them. The more cheese, the happier I am. Seems legit, right?
It all started a few weeks ago, when I struck up an innocent conversation with the guy behind the cheese counter at my local grocery store. We chatted about this and that, one thing led to another, and, well… I ended up coming home with a basket full of cheese.
Of those cheeses, the one that put me under its spell was a soft, unassuming wedge of brie. Now, I love me a good brie (you may remember the baked brie with candied walnuts I made for the New Year), but there was something special about this one. One plate of crackers later, and poof, it had vanished.
Ever since the mysterious brie disappearance of early last week, I’ve been hooked. This little number has been one of my favorite snacks for a few days running. It’s exceedingly simple — wedge of apple, shmear of brie, sprinkle of chopped pistachios, and a drizzle of honey. The honey is optional, depending on how sweet the apple is, and what mood I’m in.
Really, that’s it. There is no recipe, just your favorite eating apple, and a good wedge of triple creme brie (rule of thumb: the more “creme’s” it has in its name, the creamier and more luxurious it is). So good, I had to share it with you.
