Caprese salad and more. 7/23/19

On Tuesday we used our bountiful tomatoes for Caprese salad. The salad is simply slices of tomato and mozzarella, a sprinkling of basil, and olive oil and balsamic vinegar. Oh, and don’t forget the salt! My salad looks like the Italian flag due to a variety of tomato that is green when ripe.

Following our salad first course we ate grilled chicken thighs with broccoli salad. We have decided that we like chicken thighs much better than chicken breasts. They are juicier and have more flavor. We get boneless skinless ones and John trims the fat. I am willing to spend a few more calories for more flavor!

Our air conditioner has broken at a very inconvenient time with the temperatures rising to near 100F on Wednesday. We have made the decision to go out to dinner on Wednesday evening to avoid heating up the house with any sort of cooking. Repairman comes on Thursday.
