Oh, I had plans. It was going to be my best blogging effort yet. Photo plans: the very prolific cherry tomato plant, the very healthy basil plant, my little basket of home grown ingredients ripened beautifully, just in time for this week's recipe, Mozzarella, Tomato, and Strawberry Salad. A month ago I would have been providing my own strawberries, but it's gotten too hot for them now.
Shopping plans: we found the recommended burrata style mozzarella. I even bought multi-colored peppercorns so I could pick out the pink ones!
Dinner plans (and this is where it all starts to go awry): Hubby asks about The Plan. I say it's Dorie Book Night. He finds the recipe. I tell him I'll make it when I've finished my workout. I see him in the kitchen pulling ingredients out of the refrigerator. I tell him, I'LL MAKE IT WHEN I'M DONE. I am 10 feet away from him. He is marvelling over his new Shun knife (Father's Day gift to himself), and how well it slices the mozzarella. I ignore him.
What do you suppose happens next.
Workout is over, time to make the salad, right?
Salad is finished. Sitting on the counter. Tastes good. Game over.
There are more cherry tomatoes on the plant outside. They are bright green.
