Wish Upon A Dish: Bruschetta Day - end of summer blues

August 29, 2010

Bruschetta Day - end of summer blues

Tradition in this house.....first good day of spring I make a bowl of bruschetta, grill some bread, open a bottle of wine and dine al fresco.

The Nudge decided he wanted a end of summer bruschetta day.

It was beautiful out, the perfect setting. We ended the day with a cheese board, a bottle of Sagrantino and a ciabatta loaf.

Yes, that means we went to Whole Foods !!! LOL

My Bruschetta
Equal parts of (about 1 cup):
Diced tomatoes
Diced fresh mozzarella
Diced roasted peppers
6 basil leaves, shredded
Splash of very GOOD virgin olive oil
Splash of good Balsamic vinegar
Salt & Pepper
Thinly sliced & grilled baguette

Our Cheese Board
Goat cheese
Canadian Extra Sharp Cheddar
Fig Jam
Sliced Chiabatta Hoagie Roll

If this is the last chance we get to have a Bruschetta Day then I am happy we did it.

Next Friday we are going fishing and the week after that The Nudge is traveling to Arizona for a conference and I will be at my Dad's.

Might be too cool to eat outside after all that.
