Zesty Surprise

…and I bet you thought it would be zucchini. Truth be known I’d asked someone to write a guest post, half an alphabet ago. He offered, but alas, seems to have disappeared into his adventure.

So I’ll share my adventure with food!

Fresh mozzarella on sliced tomato with lemon zest.

a twist on mozzarella tomato, add a little zest of lemon.

peel the rind
gently now, 
leave the bitter pith behind
cut the yellow
to tiny pieces
sprinkle o’er
tender mozza,
gently laid 
o’er sweet tomato
dotted with
bright green basil
season all
with salt’n’pepper
garlic slivers, ‘n’ olive oil, 
squeeze of lemon, glass of wine….

Life is an amazing journey. http://www.alisonamazed.wordpress.com http://www.alisonboston.wordpress.com

  1. Girl, this looks too good! It looks like Christmas! Did you make up that poem? I love it! Still haven’t listened to your track!! I’m going to do that this weekend. Things should calm down a bit. Now that you’ve reached Z, what will you do?

      The tomato mozzarella thingy with the lemon zest surprised me. I invented it as I needed a Z topic and yes I wrote the poem to make the whole thing a bit more interesting. You saw my answer to what next on the Flash Fiction Friday post.

  • Supper on the Fly
    Meal planning is my weakness. I’m proud that I planned this meal far enough in advance to take the home made baked beans out of the freezer to defrost. Did that this morning.  Wanted them to add to yesterday’s left-overs:…Read more ›

  • Three Sisters Chili 
    This chilli was a big suprise! I’d never had a squash chili, though after reading recipes with squash and beans, and looking at mouth-watering pictures, I had to try it. The result is a slightly nutty, almost parmesan taste! Ingredients…Read more ›
