Heirloom Tomato French Bread

This week has been a different one for the books. As of this past Monday we are now a family of 4. My nephew who is 5 and starting school this next month has come to live with us. It’s for the best but man I wasn’t quite ready for a little one already in school. Plus we had to turn our guest room into a little boys room and my office into a nursery that is a work in progress. My computer room alternates between the living room and kitchen table at the moment. However, I wouldn’t want it any other way.

Heirloom Tomato French Bread

Things have been a little stressful this week and menu items have been a little scarce after coming home from two trips and picking up my nephew. I did come home to some heirloom tomatoes that were still good and intact in the refrigerator. That meant a simple Heirloom tomato French Bread recipe was in order. It’s nothing hard to make because that just isn’t going to happen this week, so if it takes less than 30 minutes I am all for it.

I used three different colors for the heirloom tomato but two decided that they were going to blend in together. This recipe is great for the start of a pasta meal or just a quick appetizer using fresh tomatoes. My little girl is usually all for the bread but she couldn’t help herself when she saw the sliced tomatoes. She kept wanting more and we eventually ate every last slice.
