weekend easys


W
eekends can go either way with me, I can sometimes go way over the top or I can fall back on what comes easy. Lately I have been busy with being busy and its the kind of busy that creates future busy so it is necessary.



After spending a nice afternoon at the farmers market enjoying all of the late summer produce, the artisan cheeses, the wines and baked goods it woke me up a bit. This time of year you get all the tomato varieties all piled up and ready to be chosen.



I went ahead and picked up a few orange tomatoes and some purple basil and then stopped at the cheese and sausage place to pick up a fresh and warm mozzarella to put this ensalata caprese together.



A few cheesy sliders cant possibly be a bad idea especially when you have a fresh baked baguette and some fantastic grass fed beef, not to mention the delicious field tomatoes. Simple standbys are often just what the doctor ordered.

I think that if it has fresh tomatoes, it's almost guaranteed to be what I ordered; the doctor's opinion be damned!

A farmers market is always an inspiration! We don't have such a thing close by where I live, but when we go to England we always go to the market just to see, smell, buy something and listen to them shout out their offers! If I had one close, I'd be a regular costumer!
