Anything is good, in moderation. I cook because I love to and because I can share with those around me. I crochet for the same reason.

Do what you want to do, enjoy what you do and use it to touch those around you.

Tomato Bruschetta

Some nights, this is supper for Hubby and I.  Fresh tomatoes out of the garden and maybe some fresh fruit, a lovely light summer supper.

  1 Tbl olive oil                                                                        1 Tsp red-wine vinegar
  8 Oz plum tomatoes, cored and                                              1/2 Tsp red-pepper flakes
  -halved lengthwise                                                                4 thick slices country bread
  Coarse Salt, To Taste                                                           1/4 Cup fresh basil leaves, cut
  Pepper, To Taste                                                                     -into thin strips
  Oregano, To Taste                                                               1/2 Cup Mozzarella, Shredded
  2 Cloves garlic, minced                                                          

Heat grill or grill pan to medium-high, spray with olive oil.

In a large bowl, toss tomatoes with 1 tablespoon oil; season generously with garlic, oregano, salt and pepper. Arrange tomatoes on grill, cut sides down first. Cover and grill until soft and charred, 5 to 10 minutes per side. With a metal spatula, put tomatoes on cutting board and cut into large pieces and put in a large bowl.  To this, add garlic, vinegar, and red-pepper flakes; season  with more salt and pepper.  Stir in basil.

Reduce heat to medium. Brush bread olive oil; grill on both sides until beginning to char, about 2 minutes per side. Sprinkle  cheese on bread then divide tomato mixture evenly over each.
