This evening, while looking over my last few posts, I realized that a new visitor to the sulu-design blog might think this is a blog devoted to food. Why am I posting so many pictures of my meals recently? Perhaps I'm approaching hibernation mode - you know, storing up energy for warmth as winter approaches. Or maybe I'm cooking more frequently since Barry and I have been spending more time at home. Whatever the reason, I've been food-obsessed this past week, and if you read on, you'll be looking at even more treats in this post.
Walking home this evening, I saw figs for $1.50 a pint (!) at our local fruit stand. Seeing them, I was reminded of one of my favorite little treats, one that I must have forgotten when I blogged about Connie's awesome recipes that combined heat and fruit, like plums and peaches. How could I have forgotten the sweet taste of carmelized figs over vanilla ice cream?
I kept it simple tonight - just quartered up the figs and tossed them into a hot, non-stick pan. After a few minutes, when the pulpy insides softened up a bit and a few spots were nicely seared, I scooped them up and served them over vanilla yogurt (I recommend LaYogurt non-fat vanilla yogurt), although rich vanilla ice cream is even better.
I swear, I shall return to posting sulu-design pieces soon (remember, there's free shipping at my etsy shop this week), but until then, make sure you're enjoying some good treats at home, too. See you tomorrow!
