Today my daughter who helps me with reviews on here sometimes is 15! It's very exciting and scary. She is getting her permit and has dedicated much of the last month to studying, etc., to make it happen. Watch out world! I hope my nerves hold up. Actually, she's very responsible, and her driver's ed teacher praised her tons. That makes me feel better about the whole thing. Whew!

The Bruschetta and a birthday
Saturday I finally made that Bruschetta from Julie and Julia. Here's the recipe I actually followed. Well mostly. The visuals of my steps looked just like hers. Amazing. It was incredibly delicious. The hubby was just as thrilled as I was. I didn't sauté the tomatoes or add the chunks of fresh mozzarella this time, but I think I will next time just to see what the difference is. I think part of the key is the different types of tomatoes. I especially liked the dark green looking one. I also tried it with 2 different kinds of bread. Regular French and Sourdough. They were each good in their own way. My husband liked the sourdough best. I was on the fence. I would try the sourdough and think, "Oh, I like this best," and then I'd try the french and think, "I don't know, maybe this one is better." Davin, this is very similar to yours, eh?
