So it was Mothers Day yesterday, and Mom was the only one home for the weekend. I decided to go out and buy some groceries and flowers for her lunch (flowers for decoration of course).
My mom LOVES tomatoes, and we had just so happened to get some tomatoes and herbs from the Greensboro Curb Market the day before. Clockwise from the top right: I found some fresh mozzarella in the fridge and decided to coat that in Italian breading and pan fried it, and then served a little bit of the bruschetta mix (tomatoes, garlic, onion, and basil all chopped and tossed in olive oil). Then I made the added the classic bruschetta onto some toasted Italian bread along with a cup of homemade tomato and basil soup. This is only the first part of the meal!
Time for the Main Course! Mom always loves orrechiette pasta and so I decided to make some for her main course! here we have some orrechiette pan tossed with sausage (squeezed out of the skin and chopped) sauteed in butter and garlic, spicy greens, and peeled plum tomatoes. So simple, and so delicious! Happy Mothers Day Mom!
