Who doesn’t like garden fresh? Garden fresh bruschetta is a summer time staple in our home. This is the first year we have had a garden in 6 years! Let me repeat that… 6 years. So, I am just giddy about walking out the back door of our home and picking what I need for this delicious summer time favorite!
And did I mention it is simple and easy?
Our garden has done fabulous this season! I am quite surprised because we tried a different kind of raised bed. I’m just love having fresh vegetables on hand. Now, don’t get me wrong, I love going down to the farmers market and strolling through the vendor tents. It is such a relaxing, simple way to start a weekend.
But, when I can enjoy a good cup of coffee while strolling through my garden in the morning sunlight. It doesn’t get better than that! Nothing beats growing your own veggies. Well, maybe a bit of retail therapy, but that is a whole other post.
I picked up an oven fresh garlic artisan loaf from the grocery store for my bruschetta. It smells amazing with big chunks of garlic. Yum! It is a challenge at times finding good bread in the grocery store. Luckily, there is also a specialty bakery that vendors at the farmers market on the weekends. I lucked out checking the grocery store at the last minute.
Doesn’t it look delicious? All that golden crusty goodness on the outside and softness on this inside.
