my kind of popcorn



if you are what you eat, then i am a tomato from italy.  
this is my popcorn. 
Yesterday I combined a few of my favorite things, and served it on fresh bread for an appetizer.

in this order, place in bowl:

tomatoes {chop them up}
mozzarella {chopped up}
a few cloves of garlic, chopped, made into garlic confit. {saute with evoo for ten minutes}
good olive oil and balamic vingear - mix together.

fresh bread topped with tomato & mozz concoction.
ps: sorry no measurements ... i just use the mostly trusty eye.  



none too pretty.  but sure is delish.  
i usually add fresh basil from my basil plant.
but haven't picked her out just yet.  soon one will come home with me.  

Happy Thursday!
love,
the italian tomato lover

  7. Cherry tomatoes are amazing. I love mixing the yellow, orange and red babies with green basil for popping color. A yummy spin on this classic recipe is to rub the tomatoes on olive oil and skewer over a grill (toasting bread on the grill as well) until slightly charred. It tastes delish hot off the grill or refrigerated with the garlic confit for a few hours. Any leftover tomatoes can be pureed into a summertime gazpacho. I'm getting hungry...
