So I don't really know exact measurements on this...doesn't really matter too much I don't think.
cucumber, chopped (about 1/2 as much as the watermelon amount)
red onion, thinly sliced (also about 1/2 as much as the watermelon amount)
handful of chopped fresh mint
crumbled goat cheese
Pretty much just chop up and combine everything! and then drizzle with lemon juice and olive oil, and add salt and pepper to your taste.
Ok. now to the delicious dinner.
Ok so I kinda just threw this one together so the recipe is not exact either.
1/2 lb pasta, cooked al dente
Spicy sausage (or the sausage of your choice, spicy or not, I like Whole Foods deli spicy italian kind)
2 cloves garlic, minced
1/4 onion, chopped
2-3 tomatoes, chopped
red pepper flakes (I used Anaheim peppers, which are more spicy than regular red pepper)
few ounces smoked mozzarella, shredded (the fresh cheese tastes sooo much better than the pre-shredded stuff)
fresh basil, chopped
Cook sausage in a skillet/pan. set aside and drain, but leave the grease to then saute the onion and garlic. (You could also use olive oil in a different pan, but I just used the grease from the sausage, cause it was already there). After the onions and garlic are sauteed for a few minutes, add the tomatoes until they are warmed through. Add the pasta and sausage to the pan, add pepper flakes, smoked mozzarella and mix thoroughly until cheese is melted in. Top with basil, and add salt and pepper to taste. Enjoy!
Now. for this bruschetta.
French bread loaf, diagonally sliced, as thick/thin as you would like.
1-2 cloves garlic, minced, (depending on how many toasts you are making. I used 1 clove for 7 pieces.)
2-3 tomatoes, seeded and chopped (again, depending on how many you are making, I used 2 small tomatoes)
fresh basil, chopped
Drizzle bread slices with olive oil, and spread a thin layer of butter. sprinkle with pieces of garlic and bake 5-6 minutes in the oven at 350. Add tomatoes, salt and pepper and put back in the oven and broil for a few minutes, until tomatoes are warm and bread edges are golden brown. Top with basil.
That's all! So about that ice cream...this will do for now : )
