Moments of Life

Like I promised, here’s some pictures from our gardening adventure yesterday.

This is my mom, digging a hole to plant her cherry tree.

Isn’t it cute?

Timmy and I had homemade bruschettas today! SO yummy.



Bruschetta Mix


We have a really simple recipe for them.

Homemade Bruschetta


Loaf of French bread

2 Tomatoes

2 cloves garlic

fresh/dried basil

Olive oil



How to make it:

Cut French bread into slices about 1/2 inch thick. Crush one clove of garlic and lightly rub the garlic on one side of the bread. Additionally, lightly coat the same side of the bread with olive oil using a brush.

In the pan: Place in pan to bake until the slices are golden-brown. This takes about 3-5 minutes per side at medium heat.

In the oven: Place slices on a baking sheet and bake/broil them for a few minutes. Make sure you pay close attention, because once they start to brown they are done, and they go from brown to black in seconds if you don’t pay attention.

Meanwhile, dice the tomatoes and squeeze them slightly while transferring to a different dish to get their juices flowing. Add olive oil, some minced garlic, salt and pepper to taste, and then add the basil. Stir and you are ready to go!

This is a very quick and easy basic bruschetta recipe. You can add different ingredients depending on taste and preferences. Hope you enjoy it!

And, as promised, here’s a picture of my new hair style:
