I was feeling too lazy to walk/bike our dinner down to the water (1 1/2 mi. away), so we picnicked in the living room instead!  The nettle cheese was a gift from my parents who brought it straight from Holland.  You are supposed to be able to wait and let it age and harden in the fridge, but we couldn’t wait.

olive tapenade:

  • 1 C Kalamata olives (i just grabbed a few varieties off the olive bar)
  • 2 T capers
  • 5 sun dried tomatoes, sliced
  • 1 T fresh lemon juice
  • 1 1/2 t fresh thyme, chopped
  • 1/2 C extra virgin olive oil
  • Freshly ground black pepper
  1. Pulse in a food processor until olives are sufficiently chopped up.

Dark + Stormy:

  • 6 oz ginger beer
  • 2 oz dark rum
  • 1 lime wedge
  • ice
