the girls are off of school this week for half term. we went to the park this morning and then had lunch at john and kathy's. after watching a few episodes of paula dean on dvd we made this together for our afternoon snack. it was delish! we don't have a grill so i just used our panini press instead. here's the recipe...

...recipe from the june 2007 issue of Gourmet magazine

1/4 teaspoon sugar
1/4 cup + 2 tablespoons olive oil
baguette slices

Heat grill.

Cut 8 thin slices from the lemons, then squeeze juice from remainder and put inot a bowl.

Halve cheese diagonally and then slice each triangle into 1/3-inch-thick slices.

Press garlic into the lemon juice and add salt and sugar and 1/4 cup olive oil. Stir. Separately toss the lemons and cheese with a little bit of the dressing.

Brush both sides of the bread slices with olive oil.
