Directions

Place goat cheese on serving plate. Brush one tablespoon olive oil on cheese. Add pepper to taste.

Combine tarragon, chives and thyme. Sprinkle over cheese.

Add remaining olive oil and raspberry vinegar.

Serve with crackers or french bread. The hardest part is tearing the plastic cover off of the goat cheese! i also found that the frst time i made this, i didn’t chop the chives and tarragon fnely enough and it tasted more bland.

Ode to a Prosthetic Leg

Here I sit, wishing to stand; looking at equipment that came from a can; wondering, why me, with this thing

in my hand.

Not wanting to sit, but wishing to stand, I slipped my small limb into that

piece of can; then up and on, I whisked away,

like any man.

Herb Hartman May 2011
