Summer with Cheese on Top

Bruschetta is a delicious thing to do to tomatoes, onions, and garlic. So wonderful.  Do you know what’s even better?  Putting it on flat bread, sprinkling some cheese on it and heating it enough to melt the cheese.  Talk about awesome.  OH so very good.  Yum.
My bruschetta recipe comes from a full blood Italian woman who married a Dutch guy from my old church.  She would make it for the VBS leaders on the last date each year and oh what a special treat it was.  She had all the ingredients from her garden and we’d savor each bit.  The recipe is a little “to taste” so be sure to add things according to your own taste.
