Posh Cheese on Toast – Super Savoury Snack

I cannot believe it’s been 4 years since London hosted The Olympics & Paralympics. I was lucky enough to visit the Olympic Park & watch some swimming heats, the basketball bronze play off, and women’s table tennis semi finals. My most special moment was at the Paralympics in the Olympic stadium, feeling the heat of the torch & cocophany of  80,000 people cheering  as they watched David Weir win 5000m – an amazing night of sport. Tonight Brazil host the Opening Ceremony at the Maracana in Rio de Janeiro which starts at 23.30 in London.  For a great late night or any time of day snack try this recipe.
