Another Recipe

Here's another quick summer dessert we invented last night (though I imagine someone's done it before), with a somewhat Middle Eastern flair:

Stuffed Dates
whole dates (2-3 per person)
goat cheese
fresh mint leaves

Dice mint leaves very small, and mix with goat cheese. Cut a slit in each date, remove the nut, and spoon cheese mixture into the slit. If desired, garnish with another mint leaf. These look lovely on a plate with some nuts, like walnuts, and served with a glass of a sweet wine, port, or sherry. They could also be an appetizer.
