There are two kinds of people in the world: people who can make a nice cheese plate, and people who cannot. The people who CAN make a cheese plate always seem to have quince paste and fig  hanging out in their kitchen, and also tend to know what quince paste  is.  I have always felt that having a bowl on your kitchen counter full of produce indicates a level of self awareness, forward thinking, organization and preparedness that basically means you are better at being alive than basically everyone else. Now that I have finally remembered that I feel this way, and started filling a bowl with such items, I would like to announce that I feel basically the same, and ready for only moderately pre-meditated kitchen activities, which is to say, guacamole.
