The Boursin Legacy

Did you see that movie? The one with Jeremy Renner and Rachel Weisz? It's big and colorful and exciting, and I've watched it four times.

Oh, I got that wrong. It's The Bourne Legacy, an offshoot from all those Matt Damon movies. Yeah. Well, I guess I had Boursin cheese on my mind. Damn, I love that stuff, almost as much as that movie. And it's so easy to make at home.

Get a hunk of good cream cheese. The stuff in the foil is not allowed. Get a couple of green garlic bulbs and mince them up, fine. Chop a little handful of chives. Add this to the cheese, and shower with cracked black pepper. Mix well and allow to Boursin, I mean Bourne, I mean burgeon for a while.

Serve with some really nice crackers (these are olive oil and sea salt from the Rustic Bakery in Marin). Pop in that DVD (or stream it, you cloud hipsters) and sit back for Too Much Fun.

What an inspired idea! Where do you get your fancy cream cheese?

Zoomie: The cream cheese comes from Whole Foods or Mollie Stone's. It's not "fancy," per se. It's just genuine! None of that slimy gum thickener the Philadelphians add.

Sweet! You're back. Looks like I got some catching up to do. :)

Hi, Greg. Yeah, I just sorta snuck back; didn't announce it to anyone. So it's extra special that you wandered over! Thanks.
