My neighbor has been away for five days and, besides taking care of his
sweet kitty cat Ms. Nala, I was given the green light to pick the fresh harvest
from his little kitchen garden. So I did!
Here on my plate, his beautiful large leafed basil and crunchy cucumber.
The flatbread pizza I put together using a very good ready-made
'rustic crust' (Costco box of three), brushing lightly with a good olive oil,
drizzled on a little sauce which comes with the crust, some shredded Italian
cheeses, and fresh tomatoes roasted earlier in the oven. A quick 10 minute
bake, then topped with fresh peppery arugula tossed with a bit more olive oil,
and a grind of healthy sea salt. . . . . Saturday supper was ready.
And the burrata?
Oh my, I love this fresh cheese which, when cut open,
spills out its creamy deliciousness and a quick supper becomes
almost a gourmet meal!
