It was a Foodie Friday today . . .
It's summer on the prairie
The tomatoes are starting to ripen
It's hot . . . too hot
So meals need to be easy
Everyone I know who watched the movie, Julia and Julie, wanted to make
It was the bruschetta . . .
Farmer's Market tomatoes, basil from the garden
a bit of olive oil, a toasted baguette, and some sea salt
Husband Jim and I decided that a good bruschetta beats out a BLT for the best use of summer tomatoes!
The other dish
Is an adaptation of an appetizer that we had at Crooner's Restaurant last night
which, in fact, was an adaptation of a dish that owner Jim had
the restaurant owned by James Beard Award Winnter, Colby Garrelts
A simple appetizer
that Husband Jim fell in love with
Baguette, grilled (and sprinkled with salt and pepper), goat cheese drizzled with honey and with a sprinkling of thyme, prosciutto, and arugula
You spread some goat cheese on the baguette, add some prosciutto, and top with arugula
It was a great summer lunch
with fresh cherries for dessert!
And for our dinner dessert?
Ina Garten's honey vanilla fromage blanc with berries and peaches and a drizzle of raspberry sauce
A perfect dessert for a July night!
