Primula And Pesto Toasted Bites

The lovely people at Primula sent me a cute little cool bag late-ish last year with a selection of their cheeses in, but it's only recently we've had the chance to try them out, partly thanks to illness and bugs. Mum used the light cheese at Christmas on some olive oil crostini, and I've just tried a recipe from the Primula site which I thought I'd blog about.

Ingredients

Pesto (I chose green pesto with basil from Aldi)
Crusty Baguette
Primula Cheese



Method

This has to be one of the easiest snacks to make, with just 4 steps to something tasty. First cut your baguette to suit your hunger levels, either small circles, or longer cuts to make bigger slices. Then spread the pesto on each slice, you don't need to spread it too thick, but just to suit your taste. Next squeeze some Primula on top of the pesto (again to suit your tastes) and your ready to go. All you have to do then is place the slices under the grill and wait for them to bubble up like normal cheese on toast.



The Verdict

I was pretty wary of toasting cheese spread, and although I've had pasta salad mixed with pesto before, I wasn't sure if I'd like either taste or them both mixed together. The end result surprised me though, and although I wouldn't make big slices of it myself, I enjoyed my treat in small doses. I think it was partly the pesto I chose, which wasn't too strong on the garlic or the herbs so I didn't have 2 competing flavours in my mouth, they fit together well. it wasn't like eating normal cheese on toast, a bit more gooey, but made a nice change, and is something I'd do again. Only bad point was the pesto had to be used in 2 days, and I don't eat toasted cheese recipes that often!!

Have you tried Primula or any of their recipe ideas? Let me know in the comments below if you have, or you've got a favourite snack to share.

Action Themed Handmade Card - Daring Cardmakers Challenge

Hi Everyone, Hope you're all having a good week! Just want to say thanks to all of you that have been reading and commenting on my blog posts, especially the recent craft ones, joining in with the Daring Cardmakers challenges. I don't always have time to blog along, but this week the theme was 'action', and it was the perfect excuse to make a card with a topper kit I have had laying around for ages. The card I made is perfect for sports fans of all ages, and as a big diving fan, I'm sure this one will be a lot of fun for all. My main image and some of the extra bits are from a Hunkydory kit, I just love the image of the guy diving and his reflection shown in the water.  Copyright 2017 - These City Days I found some aperture cards in my stash and I'm enjoying decorating round the edges and adding some dimension to the designs. This time I went for a few sentiments, stars punched from holographic card, and some jute twine from Baker Ross.  I am slight

Daring Cardmakers - Trim The Tree Craft Challenge - Cross Stitch Card

Hi Everyone, It's the start of another week, and I'm fresh from seeing some of my favourite musical friends, for the first time in a long while, at our Christmas light switch on. I have some video, but I have never edited video clips in my life, so while I figure out what I'm doing, time to catch up on some other blog posts. I have joined in and submitted craft projects to the Daring Cardmakers Challenge before, and it's been great fun. So I just want to thank everyone who has commented on my previous posts, and add to this weeks challenge 'Trim The Tree'. I am working my way through a few small cross stitch kits from magazine free gifts, and this tree design really stuck out from my stash. It was easy and fun to stitch, and I even tweaked it a bit to add some gold glitter for the star at the top. Instead of hanging it in the supplied aperture card though, I found a plant pot topper with 25 on, and mounted it on a card just above that. The finished car

3 Ways With Mama Makes Bohemian Border Stamps

Hi Everyone, There's a little bit of a crafty overload here and on social media at the moment, but there are other posts planned and in draft form, so please look out for those, they just take a little bit of time to put together. Meantime I wanted to share the Mama Makes Bohemian Border stamps. I am a member of the design team, but bought these as I really liked the range of different designs - there are 10 in total, and had quite a few ideas of what I could do with them. I thought I'd post the stamps below, and 3 very different makes I came up with using them. 1) A Christmas Card - The Bohemian Border here I used as a Christmas garland, and absolutely love how it looks all coloured and glittered (had to get a little sparkle in there). The other thing I like about this set, is some of the designs are more of a bunting/garland shape, and not just a straight line, so there are handy gaps you can decorate with stick on gems or small embellishments for a finishing touch.
