heirloom tomato bruschetta

heirloom tomato bruschetta

in my last post i clearly professed my love for tomatoes - so there really is no need to go on about it here

straight forward bruschetta is the best

made prettier with yellow & not quite red, not quite pink tomatoes

as my cousin put it best the other night
"these totally taste like summer" -sam

and i couldn't agree with her more

one of the best things using super fresh items is that you don't need many ingredients to make a truly outstanding food that your friends will rave about

above is my girl brandywine - she is the perfectly imperfect girl of the summer

her cracks and lines make her even more beautiful - telling her summer story to those willing to listen

some people have a fear of an imperfect tomato - they are so use to the perfect looking grocery store tomato

those people don't know what they are missing
