Finally on Facebook
My Sister-in-Law Libby convinced me to create a page on this site. I alternate between shy and private. The more I am out there, the less I want to be.
When the tomatoes are at their peak in the garden (mine are now) this is an ideal bite to serve with a good wine when you feel like doing little and enjoying your company more.
1 loaf crusty french bread, sliced 1" thick
6-8 ripe tomatoes, chopped
salt and pepper to taste
8 oz whole milk, fresh Mozarella sliced or torn.
Huge amount of torn basil from the garden
Split the loaf in half and rub with olive oil, sprinkle lightly with salt and broil til it just begins to brown. top with the cheese and chopped tomatoes and broil for about 5 minutes, crush fresh basil into the tomato and melted cheese and cut into pieces and serve.
A great Chianti Classico at cellar temperature would be perfect.
I LOVE summer.
