~ Good Morning, World! ~
Are you up, yet? I am up with one eye open ….. this 2 week Spring break is really doing a number on my routine.
Don’t get me wrong ….. I LOVE spending time with my kids, but it is so hard to fit my writing in …… the cooking part is not a problem cause I am always in the kitchen feeding them …..
…. the turning recipes into the posts part is little harder when they are home.
Last few days I have been also spending some girl time with my best friend’s little girl (my daughter from another mother).
For 5 year old she is quite adventurous when it comes to food (and everything else) ….. one of her favorite dishes is BRUSCHETTA with MOZZARELLA …
… so when she came over the other day we wanted to make BRUSCHETTA with MOZZARELLA & TOMATOES , but had to go to the store & buy fresh bread ….
On the drive to the store I am trying to have a conversation with my favorite sweet 5 year old ….
Me: ” So baby girl how have you been?”
BG: ” Why?”
Me: ” Just wanna know. How’s life treating you? ”
BG: ” It’s not like I am dying or anything !!!!! ”
…. yup …. she told me ….
We picked up our bread …. drove home (no more hard hitting questions) ….. made TOMATO MOZZARELLA & BASIL BRUSCHETTA …. watched a movie …..
… then I returned her ….
…. I missed her few hours later …. the stuff that comes out of her mouth is priceless.
If you would like to make our TOMATO MOZZARELLA & BASIL BRUSCHETTA just follow the recipe below.
