in my kitchen :: tomato and basil bruschetta


{photo by my 10 yr old}

So after watching Julie and Julia recently {for the umpteenth time!} , bruschetta found its way to our dinner menu.

If you have fresh summer tomatoes left, or they’re still coming in for your part of the country, try this simple recipe.  Enjoy it al fresco.

* And if you need a laugh today, a smile to your face — this post on how I spent a quiet evening making bruschetta should do it!

Happy Weekend…
