SPRING GARDEN OR MUD PIT?
I took a muddy walk around for a peek at my neighbors units and it’s easy to see a wide range of planting methods at work. We’ve got a classic square foot gardener or two, some that look like a crazy quilt of various plants, and one that looks like they’re protecting Fort Knox in their little cages.
BREAD FOR A YEAR!
A couple of weeks ago my friend Lynn and I bid upon, and won, a certificate for Bread for a Year from Panera. The certificate entitiles us to visit the shop and get a free loaf of bread every week for a year. My first pick of the year was their Tomato Basil Bread and it inspired me to make this panini for my dinner tonight.
2 thin slices tomato
2-3 basil leaves, thinly shredded
2 slices fresh mozzarella
salt & pepper to taste
Once assembled, heat your panini press or grill pan. I like to spread just a bit of olive oil or butter on my bread before it hits the pan, but it's not required. Tonight I used a bit of garlic infused olive oil and it was delicious.
