Why is that the last days before you leave on a trip are always so hectic? And I don’t mean with packing stuff or arranging those last minute things. I’ve travelled enough that I have gotten quite efficient in the packing area, but for some reason people always want to all of a sudden meet, customers decide that NOW is the time to do a photoshoot because well, the deadline was yesterday so can you please, pretty please, squeeze in a last minute photoshoot?
So while I initially had nothing whatsoever planned for this week, I’ve been working my butt of and in the meantime having to make sure that I also do the laundry. It would be nice to take clean clothes with us when we leave…
That also means that I really don’t get around to cooking a lot. It’s been hot and humid here for the past couple of days and the prediction is that tomorrow is going to be scorching hot. Ah well, at least we can get used to the temperatures at our final destination! It beats going to a tropical country in the winter. That is always HARD! (especially coming back to the freezing cold!)
So most of the afternoons I do a quick sandwich. Nothing fancy but the other day I wanted to use some of the honey cherry tomatoes I had left over. I also had a load of small mozarella (bocconcini… I never know how many cc’s to put where!! ) balls left over plus all the basil from the garden that was screaming to be used. So I toasted some old bread, smeared some good old pesto on top and layed all the little tomatoes and mozarella on top as well… Hmmm. How can something so simple be soooooo good!
And because I was having my camera nearby I did a little cutie stack of one sliced cherry tomato and some mozarella…Ridiculously small when you see it up close and not very stable at all, but just for fun. isn’t it cute? (and not to mention tasty too!)
I should have drizzled a little oil over that sandwich at the top while I look at it. Not because it needed more flavour but it would probably have looked even yummier…
I still have more mozarella left. I bought them for the BBQ and they only came in a ridiculously large can, so I keep eating mozarella but it doesn’t seem to grow any less! Tom hates mozarella so it’s just me… Don’t think I will be able to finish this before sunday!
Any good ideas for simple delicious mozarella sandwiches give me shout!
So on to finish more work. All should be done by the end of the day thursday which leaves friday to pack the backpacks, saturday to bring Gizmo to the cathotel (first time and I am scared to death!!). The other two are being taken care of by my parents in law, but because Gizmo needs to get her medicine every day she needs special attention.
And then sunday…. flying time!! Whooohooo!!
