The house is about to be brimming with food, moms, and children. I am hosting recipe club, the theme is appetizers. It's a monthly event we have in MOMs Club on our calendar.
I am making Bruschetta with a recipe from my dear friend, Love2Cook, who should be here today! Instead she is loving life, chasing her two kids around, in our Nation's Capital. We miss you, we'll be thinking of you with our full tummies.
Roma tomatoes (as many as you want) chopped
basil (as much as you like )
red onion - I add about 1 tablespoon finely chopped
garlic (1-2 cloves)
balsamic vinegar - 2 tablespoons
extra virgin olive oil - 2 tablespoons
Mix everything together and marinate in the fridge for as long as you want. As you let it sit, the flavors meld together better and it's really delicious. Serve with toasted bread of your choice. I like baguette slices. I also use the leftovers for pasta. It's a really great spring/summer dish.
Here it is:
Here's the Spread:
We ended up eating-" 6 ingredient" 7-Layer Dip, Potstickers, Veggie Pizza, Buffalo Dip, Bean-Avo Dip, Tortilla Rollups, and the Bruschetta! Yum! I definitely have happy belly!
