June has now come to an end, but since we just started this blog a little late, we wanted to express our love to all the Kirksville community members. We will always provide an open seat and be here to break bread with those who have fought for their place at the table.
In honor to celebrate, even though it may be July, I wanted to share some of my favorite quick recipes, but to support our friends, we must look past color and save the rainbow for others.
Bread (I found some wonderful cheesy bread at the market that I love for this)
1 small tomato diced
Drizzle of olive oil
Drizzle of Balsamic vinaigrette
Seasonings to taste: Rosemary, Salt, Pepper, Thyme, Oregano, Basil
Grated cheese of choice (I like mozzarella
Slice your bread in slices and put in toaster until desired temperature
Toss tomatoes pieces with olive oil and seasonings
Place mixture on top of of bread and drizzle with balsamic and grated cheese
2-12 Asparagus Stalks
Fresh Basil or any fresh herb you have
Mozzarella or Any Cheese you Have, Sliced
Date Lady Balsamic Vinegar or Any Balsamic will do (I love glaze)
Olive Oil, Extra Virgin
Sea Salt to Taste
Peel or snap off the bottom halves of asparagus so they are not woody tasting
Slice tomatoes and fresh basil
Generously add extra virgin olive oil to asparagus. Add salt and pepper
Throw on the grill or saute in a pan over med-high heat. Cook for 2 minutes, turn and cook 2 minutes, then remove.
Top with tomatoes and cheese and drizzle balsamic
So, if you can't tell, I love tomatoes and balsamic vinegar! However, all of these ingredients can be found in local stores and farmer's markets. Not to mention they make for quick, healthy meals. I hope you enjoy these recipes and, once again, sending all the love in the world to our community members!
