|Tomatoes, Basil, Mozzarella, & Olive Oil|
I made these last week to bring to one of the many end-of-year parties. I was amazed how something so simple caused such excitement among the guests. One even asked for a recipe -- huh?! Maybe it was the Margarita talking, I don't know. Another inquired about the amount of time it must have taken me. I assembled them pretty quickly actually -- picking out the red toothpicks from the box of multicolored ones took the most time. The rainbow look wasn't working for me at the moment. I didn't share that, though.
My basil plants are looking beautiful right about now, and I'm convinced that these were sooo tasty because of the absolutely fresh basil from my garden. I have plans for this pesto, too, with a bit of that basilico.
