I've been hunkered down at home all weekend with this 100+ degree heat. Yesterday I was so sick with a migraine and the heat that I was having hallucinations after taking 3 excedrin. o_0 So today I was eager to get some food in me asap. I had some fresh basil and tomatoes and a baguette that I got yesterday morning, so I threw together a quick batch of bruschetta.
I cut up a big tomato, four basil leaves, a clove of garlic, and threw in a splash of balsamic vinegar. I mixed it all together in a big bowl and set it aside. I brushed several slices of baguette with olive oil, and toasted them on a baking sheet at 350* for 5 minutes. Once the toasts were out of the oven, I added the tomato mixture and voila-- fab lunch for a hot day.
