We’ve got tomatoes!  

We started a couple of container tomato plants this spring and the tomatoes are starting to turn red.  Both kids think it is the greatest think ever.  My son is not crazy about eating tomatoes, but he will eat these.  He keeps asking, are these homegrown?  Are these homegrown?

Here is a great Bruschetta recipe for your summer tomatoes and basil.
2-3 tbsp olive oil
2-3 cloves of garlic, minced or pressed
3-4 roma tomatoes, diced
3 pinches of salt
4 leaves of basil, chopped

Over medium heat, add olive oil to the pan. Add the garlic and sautee for 1 min. Add tomatoes and salt. Cook until tomatoes are soft, but not to the point that its a sauce. Add basil towards the end of cooking the tomatoes. Remove from heat and serve with toasted bread.

You can add more oil to loosen the mixture as desired.

A great way to serve this is to slice a fresh loaf of french bread, top with the bruschetta and sprinkle shredded mozzarella. Broil until cheese is melted.

I will be linking this post up to some of the fabulous Linky parties found here.
