To run, then eat (or maybe to eat, then run... or better yet, just eat)

I took advantage of my free morning today, and went for a run. After a commendable 6.5 miles (I initially stopped at 5.5, but then the thought of all the pasta I ate this weekend pushed me a bit further), I decided to reward myself with something delicious but quick and easy.

I bought some beautiful brown turkey figs the other day at the Farmer's Market.

Look at the gorgeous color! I found a lovely recipe by Jamie Oliver (tweaked just a tad) that pairs the figs with mint. Wonderful combo!

1 loaf rustic bread, cut into 1/2-inch slices
1 large clove of garlic, peeled
Extra virgin olive oil
6 large ripe figs
12 slices prosciutto
Fresh mint
Balsamic vinegar

Brush the slices of bread with olive oil and place on the grill. Once nicely toasted, rub with the garlic clove. Drape a piece of prosciutto over each slice. Tear up the figs and place a few pieces on top. Mince up some mint leaves and sprinkle on top. Drizzle with balsamic vinegar.
