when you're having a bad day....





...you should probably accept the offer from your sainted husband to run to the commissary (grocery store, for those of you who don't speak "military").  And when he gets home you should use all those fresh ingredients to make homemade bruschetta.  Because who can resist this??

 1. Combine fresh basil, chopped tomatoes, a little olive oil, sea salt and pepper.  Leave it alone for at least an hour.
2.  When you're ready to eat, cut thick slices of a crusty bread and pan-fry in olive oil until crispy
3.  Layer tomato mixture on top.  If you're feeling particularly crazy, sprinkle with parmesan cheese.

And there you have it.  The most delightful and easy summer meal imaginable.

It's guaranteed to make a bad day a little bit better.  ;)

  1. I asked my french teacher (who speaks Italian fluently, married an Italian, and lived in Italy for several years) how to say it 'officially'. It's "broo-skett-uh", but she says in Naples some people might say it "broo-shkett-uh". Just for all of the Glorioso siblings who have been fighting about it for a really long time.... Lindsey was right. and Ellie sorta. but mostly Lindsey.
