Tomato - Mozzarella - Basil / New Jersey / Sept. 2008
My recent addiction has been tomato, mozzarella, and basil sandwiches. I've had one for lunch almost every day in September. The tomatoes have been particularly juicy and sweet. The mozzarella fresh and creamy. Basil, salt and pepper add spiciness. Fresh sesame seed rolls coated with olive oil keep it all together. If one of the ingredients is missing, a short run to the farmstand remedies the situation. I don't think I could ever tire of this combination (plus I love the fact that no decision needs to be made about what to have for lunch). But the weather is changing and we are at the end of the Jersey tomato season. I'll need to find a new addiction.
