Sunday lunch




A lovely Sunday. Up early. A little train ride. Window shopping. A yummy fresh baked pasty. A new red lipstick. A visit to the Air show. A glass of Pimms. Big plane. Fast planes. Loud planes. Back home in time for lunch.

Pea and parmesan and tomato basil bruschette with ham.

Pea and parmesan puree
In a food processor put a few mint leaves and a pinch on basil leaves with two good handfuls of fresh podded peas.
Add a large handful of parmesan, some olive oil and a good squeeze of lemon juice.
Blend.
Add salt and pepper to taste.

Tomato and basil topping
2 handfuls of cherry tomatoes seeds removed then chopped.
Pop in a bowl with a good pinch of greek basil leaves (I just like this type as the leaves are so tiny and perfect)
Olive oil, white balsamic vinegar, salt and pepper to taste.

Serve with toasted bread and your favorite sliced ham.

It's only 07:40 in the morning, is it wrong that I now want that for breakfast?! (On those plates, preferably.)

Maybe I'll just opt for very thickly sliced bread. Yummm.

this looks yummy! I like to make dinners like this. Kinda build your style. Sit on the front porch with a glass of wine. it is good.

I agree! Just spent the weekend devouring farm-fresh tomatoes, which I used on bruschetta (super if you add minced garlic to the olive oil and fresh basil.) Ate them on the porch with some goat cheese and pinot grigio. Fabulous! There's nothing more perfect than summer food! (Your husbands frittata looks amazing, too. Lucky you!)
