Must Make: White Bean Arugula Crostini
Since returning from Spain, all I want to do is make food that I ate in Spain. (As I mentioned, my heart is totally still there. So, I will recreate everything I can, when I can, to feel as though that's where I am.) I ate a bunch of "montaditos" in Spain, which are essentially Crostinis, so when I saw this cute appetizer in my Better Homes and Gardens magazine this month, I knew it'd be a must-make.
And since I'm talking about Spain, I should mention why there haven't been any blog updates or new photos--that's because I lost a day's worth of photos when I deleted them out of Picasa (don't get me started; I will be writing them a letter about it)--because that program wouldn't open CR2 files. They deleted completely off of my computer, and I was unable to recover them because the files were apparently so large that they somehow bypassed my recycle bin. (And I cried.) I do still have the reference files in Lightroom, but they're kind of blurry when you open them and they can't reference the original file...so it's been kind of a mess. I'm still hopeful that I can somehow get them not-blurry, take a screenshot, re-open them in Lightoom, and edit and re-save...
Anyway. Make this, it's super easy, and looks impressive when done! It's also super good. (Pardon the remains of another Crostini on this serving dish. They were eaten quickly--I may have helped with that--and as usual, I didn't think to take a photo first.
Here's what you need/ what you do:
