What's For Dinner, Wednesday?

FINALLY! Tomatoes from the garden - nothing beats the flavor of fresh, homegrown tomatoes (except chocolate).  I also have basil coming up like crazy, so the natural order of things points me to bruschetta for dinner.  Sure, it's a great appetizer, but give me a bowl and I can down it without any evidence left behind.  It's also a great side dish to Corn Flakes for breakfast.

                                                                  To this:

Pure deliciousness!  Notice my cute white ceramic knife in the picture?  I LOVE this knife.  It makes cutting veggies, fruit and anything else so easy - no juice squishing out.


about 1 1/2 c. chopped tomatoes
2 T. diced onion
1 - 2 cloves garlic, minced
2 T. chopped fresh basil
2 T. olive oil
1/2 - 1 tsp. red wine vinegar
1/4 tsp. salt
dash pepper

Combine all ingredients.  Let sit for a bit for flavors to blend.  Serve with toasted (with ooil) baguettes.
