Sweet Basil

About a week ago I planted some of these ($1 from Home Depot)...

Look what I discovered!  My basil is sprouting!  I dream of one day having a real garden, but herbs will have to do for now.  I painted a terra cotta pot with robin's egg blue and chalkboard paint to make it cute...

With all of my fresh basil, I will be making lots of this during the summer...

My sister first turned me on to this delicious bruschetta recipe and it is a staple in our home.  You must try it!

6 roma tomatoes (cut in half, scoop out the insides, and dice)
1/4 cup fresh basil
1/4 cup olive oil
2 Tablespoons balsamic vinegar
3 garlic cloves
1/4 teaspoon salt
1/4 teaspoon pepper
1/4 cup mozzerella (fresh or shredded)

Combine all ingredients and serve on slices of warmed baguette.  You will want to eat the entire bowl yourself!
