My family has caught the whipped feta fever and now insist that I bring it to nearly every gathering. It had gotten out of hand, so I thought I'd try a autumnal variation. It certainly delivers on easy and who doesn't love goat cheese? I'm pretty sure it was born to marry pumpkin, because the sweet and tangy play are a beautiful pair.
This ended up being a celebration of all things Trader Joe's. It happens... particularly in the cheese case. And I hit the JACKPOT with their seasonal pumpkin, cranberry crackers. They're gingerbready and amazing. Get them or live with a life of pumpkin regret.
