Difficult Gardening but Easy Dinner
On to the point of this post, some time ago, we came up with a simple little dinner we love! We have it weekly. I've even eaten it for breakfast. All you need is some flat bread, olive oil, basil, tomatoes and feta (or mozzarella). The basil and tomatoes are in no short supply here in the woods right now. I make my own flat bread, so as to have organic, and the flat bread recipe I use, courtesy of Foodnetwork.com, is awesome, easy and quick. Check it out here:
You can probably figure out how this goes, but just in case, this is how we put it together. First, put a little olive oil on your flat bread. I then sprinkle on a little garlic powder but this is optional. Next, lay out your tomatoes. You can either thinly slice or chop, though it is easier to eat if chopped. I sprinkle a little sea salt on the tomatoes. Next lay on your basil, again whole or chopped but easier to eat chopped. (After pulling off whole tomato slices and whole basil leaves in one bite, I began chopping!) Now sprinkle on your feta chunks or grated mozzarella and bake in a 400 degree oven for about 10 minutes. Isn't that easy? My kids, who swear up and down they don't like fresh tomatoes, eat them on this. Try it...it will be your new "go to meal" too!
