Yesterday, David and I went on a little adventure. It wasn't as fruitful as we had hoped, but we still had fun. While on our way home from this adventure, we stopped at a local produce stand to pick up a few things. One of those being scuppernongs. To my knowledge, I had never had one before I met my husband. However, we always grab some when they are fresh off a fruit stand.
This particular fruit stand had the most beautiful tomatoes. They were huge! Ever since I travelled to Italy with my family a few years ago, I have seen the yummy, juicy tomato light. Meaning that I could eat tomatoes for dinner and tomatoes alone.
Now, the husband believes that dinner isn't dinner unless something has died on his plate. However, I have learned that I can make that "something dead" small in proportion to the rest of his plate. We both agree that any tomato dish tastes so fresh.
A few nights ago, I made a stuffed portobello mushrooms and caprese mini skewers for dinner. And by "mini skewer," I mean toothpick! This is a really easy dish that I know you will love! It keeps for a couple days, so David and I usually snack off of it too!
Caprese Mini Skewers
1 container of cherry tomatoes
1 block of mozzarella cheese
Italian seasoning or Oregano
Extra virgin olive oil
Cut cherry tomatoes in half and cheese block into small squares.
Put a piece of cheese in-between the cherry tomato halves on the toothpick.
Drizzle olive oil and balsamic over pieces.
Sprinkle Italian seasoning over pieces.
How do you enjoy tomatoes?
