I Swear I’m Not Italian.

I don’t even know me anymore.

I am a self-proclaimed hater of tomato sauce, basil and a slew of other flavors that are associated with Italian food.

So can someone please explain today to me?

Let’s begin with lunch. I picked up some delicious ingredients at the store earlier today, and just wanted to have something light because I want to be super hungry for the delicious dinner I had planned.

This happened:

[toasted whole grain baguette with roma tomatoes, fresh mozzarella and cherry balsamic vinegar BROILED + a little basil on top]

I don’t even think I will be eating anything other than this for the rest of my life.

Oh my gosh.

At least I felt that way until dinner.

[meatballs for the boys – so they wouldn’t have a coniption.]

[I swear there is salad under the croutons.]


[tomato cream sauce.]
