Fresh Tomatoes!

Greetings at the end of day two.  I have just arrived home from the birthday party and I am pooped!  We had a wonderful time and I met some new fantastic ladies!  Here is the promised picture of the Italian Kabob's

These were amazingly easy and inexpensive to make, even I was shocked.  The concern was that the fresh mozzarella would make them pretty pricey but I discovered that you can buy the mozzarella from the salad bar at Harris Teeter and it was only 5.99 a pound versus 8.99 a half a pound from the cheese section.  Major score!  The other bargain I got today was the fresh basil.  For 2.00 you can get an entire plant which can then be re potted.

Italian Kabobs

1 pint cherry tomatoes halved
1/2 lb fresh mozzarella balls halved
Fresh basil ripped into small pieces
Salt and freshly ground pepper
Drizzle of Extra Virgin Olive Oil
Drizzle of Balsamic vinegar

Put one piece of tomato on skewer followed by a piece of basil, than another tomato, mozzarella, and repeat the tomato combination.  Continue on the skewers until you run out of either cheese or tomatoes (I ran out of tomatoes first so Bear and I had to finish the cheese).

Place on a plate and sprinkle with salt and pepper than drizzle with olive oil and vinegar.



  1. The few left over were even better today! They will have to go on the list for when you come home....

  2. Sounds good to me. I dunno how much fresh mozz I can eat before my stomach sez no moar, but I can totally test that. Also, basil, yum.
