Hooked On Caprese Salad.....

Hi Girlies!

I've known for a lonnnnng time that Bloggie Girlies are the very best chickies evah....

And, once've warmed my heart, made me cry and uplifted me.

In my last post I wrote about my little grandson (you know, the light of my life and joy of my heart???) and his trouble at school, subsequent school change and wonderful outcome.

Your positive words did so much for me and for my darling daughter.....ya'all made her cry too.

Thank you so much from this grandma's heart to your caring hearts.

I love you to bits.

Now, about this Caprese salad business. I know many/most/all of you have had this before, but I've decided it's now my all time favorite lunch. It's just delish!

Quick and easy too.

Fresh Mozzarella Cheese
Fresh Basil
Salt, Pepper and Olive Oil or Italian Dressing (I prefer the dressing myself)

Oh how this non-cooking girlie loves herself a nice, easy dish with very few ingredients.


This is what I'll be having for lunch AGAIN today.

My darling hubbs bought me a basil plant at Trader Joe's (and some fresh mozzarella....he knows what the little Missus loves)..... Thanks Muffin!

Ok....back to the cleaning.

So much to do today.

Lovies and Huggies to you sweet dearies!



  1. I adore caprese salad. Sometimes as an appetizer in the summer, we eat the mozzerella and basil on slices of juicy tomatoes. Have a lot of napkins ready...better yet, a bib!! ;-D

    I have missed you like a front tooth, and I'm going to go catch up on your posts, especially the one on the little man.

    Love you much...
