Out of time but you have some thyme? Try this appetizer. It takes less than 5 minutes to put together and tastes like it took hours.

I like it served with Trader Joes par-baked baguette but you can serve it with crostini or crackers.

                                             MARINATED GOAT CHEESE SPREAD

1 (8oz.) log fresh Goat Cheese
1/4 cup Extra Virgin Olive Oil (use your best stuff)
A few sprigs thyme and some thyme leaves
1/2 tsp. Red Pepper Flakes
1/4 tsp. sea salt
1/8 tsp. freshly ground black pepper

Place the goat cheese on a cute serving platter or in a small, shallow serving bowl. Pour the olive oil over the goat cheese log and sprinkle with thyme, red pepper flakes, salt and pepper.

Cover with plastic wrap and put in the refrigerator for 1 hour.

Let it sit at room temperature for 30 minutes to 1 hour before serving.

Serve with crackers or a thinly sliced and toasted baguette.
