Dateline: Alexandria, VA Scene: Apartment, two fiercely independent people who usually like each other a lot trapped for the 5th day in 800 square feet. Time: Dinner
He wants: Totino's Pizza from the Shell station.
She wants: Something less packaged and involving vegetables.
The compromise: Bruschetta
- Grape tomatoes (diced)
- Sliced baguette (we used an Asiago French bread)
- Sea salt
- Olive oil
Preheat oven to 400 degrees. Drizzle olive oil in bottom of the pan. Lay slices of bread flat on the oil. Layer the diced tomatoes on top of the bread. (If you have them on hand, you could add extra diced veggies or spices... we're in a blizzard and the grocery stores are ransacked, so we kept it simple.) Drizzle with olive oil and grind sea salt and pepper over the top. Bake for approximately 8 minutes, until slightly crispy.
