Heirloom tomato and balsamic-marinated mozzarella cheese, topped with purple basil. Pretty and tasty.
Purple basil, even! As Lime has taken to saying when envious, “Damn you!” It looks good.
I couldn’t tell the difference (flavor-wise) between purple basil and the normal green variety…but it was definitely good :)
Oh, no, it’s just that I have a hard enough time finding the plain green kind… to have the luxury of even getting purple if you want… enviable.
I picked the first tomato from my garden yesterday. I started my garden late, so they only started ripening recently. Damn, it was good. (Brad said it was the best tomato he ever tasted.)
Unfortunately, it may be the only ripe tomato I’ll get from there, because the warm weather has run out here.
Oooh, homegrown garden-fresh tomato definitely beats store-bought heirloom. Want to borrow some warm weather? The high temp still hits ninety most days. (It really doesn’t feel like fall.)
Hmmm… looks tasty.
I’m off to the kitchen now.
Yay, I made someone hungry! :)
