After traveling two weekends in a row, I’m so happy to be home and sleeping in my own bed! We were also eating out a lot more than usual, which was great at the time, but I’m happy to be back in the kitchen and eating simple, healthy meals. My daughter and I planted a basil plant in our yard this morning and it inspired this tomato, basil and mozzarella sandwich.
Simply take your favorite bread (in this case I used whole wheat) and top with sliced vine-ripened tomatoes, salt and pepper, basil leaves, mozzarella, and a drizzle of good balsamic vinegar. My favorite balsamic vinegar is this one from DiBruno Bros in Philadelphia. It’s aged for 12 years, and has an incredible flavor! This sandwich would be great on a toasted Italian bread drizzled with olive oil too! It’s the simple things in life that make me happy, and fresh herbs from our garden is one of them! Here’s my little gardener 🙂
Are you planting a garden this year? If so, what are you planting?
