Last night Graig and I had a rare quiet night at home so I whipped up two quick recipes.
I made bruschetta as an appetizer for our dinner and it was delicious. I make bruschetta a lot in the summer because of all the fresh tomatoes that are in season. I have made bruschetta for a few parties this summer and it's always a hit. I had all the ingredients on hand so I made bruschetta.
There are lots of ways to make bruschetta but I make mine very simple. It takes about 5 minutes to put together.
5 Roma tomatoes chopped
1-2 cloves garlic chopped
1/2 cup freshly grated Parmesan cheese
4-6 fresh basil leaves torn
Combine all ingredients and then drizzle olive oil and top and stir to combine. This will last a few days in the refrigerator but it never lasts that long in our house!
I buy a load of French bread at the store slice it and brush the tops with olive oil and sea salt. Bake in a 400 degree oven for 7 minutes.
Add your fresh bruschetta on top of the crusty bread and enjoy!
I also made a batch of watermelon margaritas. They were so refreshing and delicious! The perfect summery drink 🍉
Fill your blender 2/3 full with fresh watermelon chunks
The juice from one lime
3 ounces tequila
8 ounces watermelon Margarita seltzer
I buy this seltzer and it's great! Very bubbly and delicious. I stopped drinking Diet Coke in May and this is a good substitute
Blend all ingredients until smooth. Serve over ice in a Margarita glass and enjoy!
Makes 2-3 drinks.
Have a great Saturday!
