Watching Julie and Julia~

Made me crave this~



I grilled baguette slices w/ olive oil.. rubbed w/ garlic and topped with chopped fresh tomatoes,garlic,basil s and p.. that I had marinating all day..
Oh my goodness.Simple is good too.

There is one scene in the movie when Julie(Amy) makes this for dinner one night and I could have taken a bite out of the big screen~

Saved my craving for tonight~

  2. C'est simple.. je sais:) Mais bon..J'avoue que le pain sans sel en Toscane ..est mémorable..au début..on se demandait pourquoi..avant d'y rajouter les salumis..etc:)

    Tout est beau et bon en Italie et en France pour Jacques et moi:)

    J'achète des raisins dorés ce matin..Je n'en ai plus~ Merçi Mamina.

  5. I'm a firm believer in the idea that food doesn't have to be complicated to taste good. Often it is the simplest things that taste the best of all. Great looking bruschetta!

  9. Simple and beautiful. The best combination of food and of life.

  10. Yum, Monique! Thanks for putting the idea in my head. We've got tomatoes ready to pick on the vine just out the backdoor. I'm off to play catch up a little this afternoon with your blog. My daughter goes back to school late next week and then things get back to normal (whatever that is!).
    Happy weekend to you!

  11. I also loved the movie - seen it twice already. It's what us older women need to encourage younger women to do - reclaim the beauty and power from cooking in their kitchens! You do that well, btw.

    Yup, wanted to sit down for dinner with Julie and her hubs...that looked amazing and I'll make it very soon...

  15. En entrée c'est toujours sympa la bruschetta...d'origine italienne, elle est la reine entre copains...En plus ce qui est bien, c'est qu'on peut la faire de mille façons...En tous cas merci pour cette couleur soleil ce matin..jour de la fête de Marie....

  16. I was just going to laze around this Saturday morning - now - I just have to go down to the Farmers Market for tomatoes to make your beautiful bruschetta! Better for me anyway!
    Cheers!

  19. When my husband and I saw this scene we both started drooling. Glad it inspired you to recreate it and even blog about it. Now you have inspired me to do the same. Seriously, so simple, yet so pleasing!
