Tomatoes with Herbs and Fresh Mozzarella

Tomatoes With Herbs and Fresh Mozzarella

Tomatoes with Herbs and Fresh Mozzarella This is easy, tasty, fun to make, and totally gorgeous.  It’s a show stopper on any table. Start with slicing the number of big beautiful heirloom tomatoes you need for the number of mouths you’re feeding.  If you have several colors, like green zebra or yellow, the plate is even more stunning. Slice the fresh mozzarella and tuck it in between the slices, letting some of the white mozzarella show. Sprinkle various fresh herbs over the tomatoes, and make sure you place a good amount between the slices.  You can use any or all of the following:  basil, thyme, oregano, chives, parsley.  If you have other favorites, use them.  In this dish, it’s all good. Then sprinkle with cracked pepper and sea salt. Drizzle with Extra Virgin olive oil.  Then with Trader Joe’s balsamic vinegar of Modena.  It’s a short squatty bottle with a red label.  A squeeze of lime is good as well. Note:  No fresh mozzarella?  Add thin slices of red onion between the tomato slices instead.  Delicious. What to do with the leftovers?  Refrigerate the tomatoes and juices.  Tomorrow put chunks of tomato, mozzarella, and onion on a prepared pizza crust.  Add other leftover vegetables from your frig (asparagus, spinach, chard, kale, broccoli, green beans, to name a few that work well), leftover cooked meat (chicken, turkey, or beef) or add Trader Joe’s pepperoni.  On top, a little grated cheese.  Bake at 425 for about 10-15 minutes.  Add a fresh salad and you’ve got dinner. Be prepared for exclamations of approval for this easy breezy and beautiful Tomatoes with Herbs and Fresh Mozzarella.  Enjoy!!

Friday Love: Bam! Gate Breaking, Anyone?

Good Friday, Everyone!

Today, I’m sharing a story about how I accidentally accomplished something on my bucket list. I ran through an exit gate while looking the other way. The hood of my car is scratched up, and one windshield wiper is a mess, but let’s have a good laugh about how we never expect what “getting what we want” includes!

Let me know if you relate…

Enough with the Name-Calling

It seems to be a growing fad these days to call someone a narcissist, or declare they are toxic.
 
Political name-calling is similar—we assign politicians and voters to categories, and brush them off as if they are unintelligent, inferior, or even worthless.
 
By labeling others, we miss their humanity. We gloss over their struggle, their best effort at dealing with life. We dismiss them.
 
We do to them what we believe they are doing to others.
 
Look past a label, and in the soft light of day, there stands a person like you or like me, coping as best they can. At the end of the day, no friend, parent, or lover making conscious choices intends to be mean, or to ignore, or to embellish. There is always more to the story.
 
If we label others, then for sure we label ourselves. We trap ourselves into believing we are less than. Or not enough. Or we don’t give ourselves the time and forgiveness to work through our “stuff.” Maybe, if we stopped accusing others of narcissism, we could forgive ourselves for those moments when we were narrow-minded, inconsiderate, or afraid.
 
When it comes to labels, nobody wins.
 
So, my dear people, I suggest we peer a little deeper into ourselves to investigate a need to separate ourselves from others by tacking them with a label filled with disdain or scorn.
 
It is my wish that you view this video and take it to heart.
 
Much love,
Terri
