ALL YOU NEED IS ONE REAL ITALIAN AND SOME GARLIC!
CIAO TUTTI……………how is your summer going?
I KNOW, I KNOW, I KNOW………………not what we had hoped for.
BUT WE STILL HAVE TO EAT OR MANGIA as MY ITALIAN would say!
Note that is the kissing parasite above his head!
And YES HE CAN FIX ANYTHING I KID YOU NOT!
HE braided this garlic that he grew for the first time in our vegetable garden!
WHAT HUSBAND WOULD BRAID GARLIC!
MINE OF COURSE!
OH SO PROUD!
PROUD ITALIAN HUBBY!
I have been asked to join a GROUP of BLOGGERS who are putting on a BARBECUE so we can at least be with OTHERS via THE BLOGS and spicing up our menus!
MY CHOICE is BRUSCHETTA.
EASY ITALIAN GARLIC BREAD.
ALL YOU NEED IS bread, garlic,olive oil, and salt.
YOU CAN DO THIS!
IF YOU DONOT HAVE A BARBECUE just stick the bread in a toaster!
1.FIRST THING FIRST.
MAKE BREAD WARM turn so both sides are TOASTED.
This bread got a little black as it is home made in our pizza oven.
Still utterly DELICIOUS.
2.Peel a garlic glove and rub on one side of bread.
AS much garlic as you can handle!
PEEL ONE CLOVE OF GARLIC GOOD FOR MANY PEOPLE!
AS you just RUB IT ON THE BREAD.
3.Poke holes in bread with a FORK…………just DO IT!
4.Drizzle olive oil the BEST YOU CAN AFFORD over the bread.
Where you poked the holes the oil will spread!
OUR BEST OLIVE OIL.
Drizzle the Olive Oil on the BRUSCHETTA
and watch it absorb below.
5.Add salt a sprinkle is all you need.
We do it with our fingers……..that way you are more in control.
Another version which is more of a mess but completely delicious is to chop up tomatoes and add a little basil.But do step 1 and 2 and 3 first than add tomatoes then drizzle with olive oil and ADD THAT SALT!
YOU WILL NEVER EAT THAT AMERICAN GARLIC BREAD AGAIN!
Well, YOU MAY I WILL NOT!
I HAVE SEEN THE LIGHT!
Which reminds me about the time the ITALIAN and I were dating and he spent $10.00 on a ball of MOZZARELLA di BUFFALO!He was so EXCITED TO SHARE THIS CHEESE WITH ME!I took one bite and went……….EEEWWWWWW!I like that mozzarella in the plastic BALL better!
All he did was shake his HEAD.
HE IS SUCH A GOOD MAN!
I HAVE FINALLY LEARNED HOW TO EAT THE GOOD STUFF!
(WE CELEBRATED 34 years of MARRIAGE THIS WEEK!)
HERE is a little VIDEO for YOU to watch……….on the making of BRUSCHETTA.
