Baked Goat Cheese with Spicy Tomato Sauce

Fall came out of a sudden this year. 
We were at the sea at the beginning of September and yesterday, less than a month after the vacation, I took the winter jackets out of the wardrobe. 
I hate the all day long rain outside, the freezing temperatures and the cold wind.
There is so much time until next summer... 
On the other hand, I know, final countdowns do not make sense, but next October my Violet will not be with us. 
My beloved first-born child will take her way to the post-parents life and all her suitcases will be transferred to another destination, long way from home.

Children will never know how tough are some of the decisions their parents make. Parents will never be sure, their children are all right without them. And that is the way it should be. 
But, anyway, I would like to stop time, to take the most of every minute, to open some pictures holding memories of emotions and fun. 

And to post one of Violet's favorite recipes - baked goat cheese with spicy tomato sauce, a healthy, tasty and spicy appetizer, perfect for the long fall evenings.

Baked goat cheese

  • 2 circles goat cheese
  • 2 cups canned tomatoes
  • 1 green hot pepper, deseeded
  • 1 garlic clove
  • 2 Tbsp butter
Heat butter in a pan and add garlic clove and hot pepper cut into half lengthwise. Saute for 2-3 minutes and add canned tomatoes. Simmer for 15 minutes and take hot pepper out of the sauce. 
Preheat oven to 220 degrees C (425 degrees F ).
Place each circle of goat cheese into a small baking dish and bake for about 10 minutes until soft. Add tomato sauce around the goat cheese circles and bake for 10 minutes until goat cheese gets golden.
Serve hot with a piece of crusty French baguette for dipping.
