Ode to summer... my version of bruschetta...


This is a picture of beauty... just a couple ingredients, usually a glass of wine, and memories of good times...

So, I believe that it was Debbie who came up with this idea... and it stuck. This is our version of bruschetta... it's not fancy, but it's perfect for us.




Slice up the bread... and I highly recommend fresh sourdough...


Turn on the broiler... and drizzle olive oil and sprinkle kosher salt/black pepper over your bread...

While it's heating up and while your bread is toasting, dice up the mozzarella cheese and roma tomates...



Find a nice little bowl, stir it all together and make your mix... there's no right or wrong answer to the proper amount of tomatoes vs. cheese. Just make it yours...


And once your bread is nice and toasted... we're ready to start assembling our bruschetta...



First, take a spoon full of this wonderful basil pesto (from Trader Joe's)...


... and plop it onto a half-slice of toasted bread...


... and spread it around to cover your toast...


... and top it with your tomato and cheese mix...


... doesn't that look pretty?!



oh, yeah... and it tastes good too! now kick back and enjoy... it maybe February, but summer's a-comin'!!! And in the summer, it's tradition, we eat bruschetta...


And, for a quick close-up of the star of the show...



Debbie - if we had a $1 for every time we've enjoyed bruschetta together, laughed together and cried together... well ... all I know is, I so appreciate your friendship! I cannot imagine what life would be like without you in it...



enjoy your time in the kitchen...
