Quick Crostini

I'm so excited to say my house is finally coming together!  The walls have been painted, I have a real dining room, Roscie has made himself at home on the guest bed... I'm loving it.  I can't wait to have friends and family over to share the transformation from extreme bachelor pad to grown-up home.

In anticipation of having some house guests I thought i'd try out a few new recipes so I'm well prepared. When I was roaming the aisles of Whole Foods Friday night (yes, this is my ideal Friday night),  I didn't have a clear concept in mind. This crostini sort of emerged from my miscellaneous choices in my basket. This is not only a delicious starter, but a quick one thanks to the help of pre-made toasted baguette (thank you Whole Foods), and a combination of no-cook ingredients.  The perfect bite for the last minute dinner party (or if you're like me, Friday night at home).

These ingredients don't need to be exact - use them to your preference!

* zest of 1 lemon
* goat cheese (Nature's Way Chèvre is my favorite)
* cherry tomatoes, halved
* fresh basil, chopped
* black pepper
* prepared crostini or toasted baguette

To prepare the crostini, spread a thin layer of goat cheese on each baguette.  Top each piece with half of a cherry tomato, a sprinkle of chopped basil, fresh black pepper and lemon zest.  Enjoy!
