Happy Birthday, Karen! (the 12th)

Aurora had a pic of a Panzanella Salad on her blog that I immediately went home and recreated with:

Yummy. I'm perfecting the recipe. (Meaning I'm going to have it every night until I get bored with it, and considering I had a peanut butter & honey sandwich from the 1st through the 12th grades and would get distraught if my mother snuck in say, a ham sandwich, I'm thinking it'll be about the time I don't have any garden tomatos.) We grew garlic so it's drizzled with garlic oil. (My cousin has an olive grove but sadly, the olive oil isn't from her). (Homegrown garlic and store bought garlic is pretty similar, however onions? Are amazingly good from a garden. I mean, onions? Who knew?)

Well, no peppers in the Panzanella. Those are going in the Pasta Primavera and scrambled eggs....... the tomatos are being eaten like apples. They're so red through & through! Every year it amazes me.

What? You want this ball of yarn back? But....but.....come and get it! If you can.

Recipe, please? I loved growing onions and garlic and it was just incredible going out and digging them up. We grew elephant garlic which was delicious.

Panzanella salad! yummy! She says stale sourdough, fresh tomatoes, cucumbers, fresh basil, olive oil and balsamic vinegar...must--make--now!!! lol

The Hoboken version of this is fresh tomatoes, fresh mozzarella cheese, the basil, olive oil and balsamic, and sprinkle with a little fresh-ground pepper. Best to take fresh italian bread and slop it all around in the oil and vinegar! My absolutel fave summer dish ever...

but there's something about the tomatoes, basil, olive oil and balsamic (and bread crust, lol) that is SO perfect together, and so summery, if you have good, garden fresh tomatoes...
