Sleepy + Bruschetta Recipe

Posted in recipe with tags , , , , , , , on October 24, 2010 by Christine Sakariasen

Very, very tired.

Decided I would post a recipe. Went to the zoo so I can knock that off my list. But I have been cooking a lot.

-3 plum tomatoes
-fresh basil
-1 loaf of whole wheat bread

1. Cut up the tomatoes. I don’t remove the skin, as I have seen other recipes call for, but I dice everything up as tiny as possible. I feel it gives more surface area for the tomatoes to absorb the taste of all the other ingredients.
2. Chopped tomatoes are placed in a bowl. I drench the tomatoes in oil and vinegar. Yes, drench! I mix in some oregano—-1-2 tablespoons, as to your liking. Place in the refrigerator to cool.
3. Preheat the oven at 400 F. Slice bread up at a 45 degree angle. I use whole wheat for a healthier option. Place bread in a single layer on a tray. Drizzle oil on the top of each piece and add a pinch of oregano.
4. After five minutes, take the bread out of the oven. Add bruschetta to bread and add a piece of fresh basil to the top of each slice. Enjoy!

Posted in lists with tags , on October 15, 2010 by Christine Sakariasen

Why are lists comforting? Why does enumeration help those otherwise lost in a barrage of thoughts of what to do or what comes next? I decided, since I am in Leipzig, that I might as well eat it up. Meaning, why aren’t I visiting all of these places? Sure, some of them might be tourist traps but who cares? It’ll be fun.

1. Zoologischer Garten Leipzig
2. Bach Museum
3. Schloss Augustusburg
4. Wildpark Leipzig
5. Museum der Bildenden Kunste
6. Haus Zum Arabischen Coffe Baum
7. Altes Rathaus
8. Museum fur Angewandte Kunst Leipzig

So that is my list for now. Leo is going to take me to all of these places. He has been to many of these places but not all of them.

auf wiedersehen,
