  • Of Food and Love: Open-faced tomato sandwich

    The other day D wanted lunch.  Now, I can cook up a fabulous breakfast or a mouth-watering dinner, but please, do not come to me for lunch.  My creativity hits a blank wall, just about every time.

    Then, there are moments when all is well in the world of food and thoughts and I’m overtaken.  I was overtaken and it was good.  I had purchased, for the first time, mozzarella pearls.  Fresh mozzarella like that must be eaten three days after being opened, so I was scrambling to find ways to use up those cute little balls of cheese.

    We had a fresh French baguette that I sliced open and placed about four or five little pearls on and then toasted it.  Sliced tomatoes from our garden and laid them on top of all that yummy, melty cheese.

    Seasoned it with a little salt, pepper and then used a spoon to drizzle Balsamic vinegar on top.  D added his own touch by adding a couple dashes of basil.  So good.  Healthy and quick.  It is good room temp or hot off the toaster.

    I’m sure there are sandwiches similar to this all over, but this was made in my kitchen during a moment of starvation.  No recipe consulting at all.  Just pure, rare, lunchy inspiration.  Please enjoy as much as we did!

    I was inspired to make some sandies of my own. Basil Mayo, Tomatoes on dutch crunch. SOO Good!
