Fresh Recipes

We've been blessed with home-grown tomatoes, zucchini, basil, and cucumbers this week. Several different friends have gardens, and we've reaped the benefit of their labor!
Here's a couple recipes I've made with the veggies.
 Bruschetta: tomatoes, basil, garlic minced, olive oil, salt and pepper, and balsamic vinegar. Chop and mix to taste. Drizzle olive oil and rosemary on bread and broil. Yum!
Here's a new recipe I tried, thanks to my friend's suggestion. 

There's also the tried and true...

Zucchini Bread

Combine the two mixtures.
