Thanks to everyone who voted for us on Babble and for all the wonderful location suggestions. This morning Miss A did the honors of picking our winner. Mr. N offered his assistance, but she was adamant that he stay far back because she was doing this one!
Miss A did let Mr. N read the name and destination since she can’t read. 😉
Congratulations A_Boleyn! We’re looking forward to making some recipes from Japan – especially sushi.
Thanks again to everyone, and for those of you that voted for Italy – no worries. We’ll be going there soon. I can’t hold out much longer. When we started this adventure I said I wouldn’t pick Italy right away because that’s what most of our dinners used to revolve around; but I think I’ve waited long enough.
Until then, here’s a quick little recipe for Caprese Bites that Mr. N helped me out with the other day. The recipe is adapted from the Taste of Home Comfort Food Diet Cookbook. We started by slicing the tops off of some cherry tomatoes and carefully scooping out the insides.
Dad and I both enjoyed these as a side dish to our meal. We both agreed that they were better with the balsamic than the olive oil. Miss A ate these up, but that was a given. Mr. N wasn’t a big fan, but he’s picky when it comes to tomatoes. All in all, not a bad little side dish – and they’re just so darn cute. I’m sure I could come up with a more delicious (read: unhealthy) way to make these, but for a diet snack, these are pretty tasty.
