We are planning a low key holiday so far – will visit some friends and family, but no real production at our house!  No snow again this year, of course!  BUT  I did manage to pick up some snowball kits and fake snow for the kids from Hallmark… Fun, Fun!

If you are still at loose ends in planning a holiday dinner – you might check out these sites for some really good ideas – makes me wish we were cooking at home….

It's a riff on the classic caprese salad but with an Asian twist that has become Chang's calling card. Mozzarella is replaced by slices of tofu which might seem to be an unlikely comb...

Looking forward to making tomato tart today:

Fresh Tomato Tart — A Spicy Perspective
Gorgeous Fresh tomato Tart with cheese and heirloom tomatoes, then laced with fresh basil leaves for a deliciously comforting side dish, appetizer of meal.
