Building materials

Youch! Maybe I should have been a contractor. After all, I DO tend to be sloppy, slow to finish and think I can do just about anything. Anyway, I am putting up new fencing all around our house and today I went and dropped a bundle on grapestakes, fence posts, rails, etc. I couldn’t believe how much it was and that was with me shaving over $1000 off of the anticipated materials cost.

Tonight I get to put together the simple, delicious and straightforward tomato, basil and mozzarella salad. All ingredients are available at Trader Joe’s.

Tomato, Basil and Mozzarella Salad

Get a bowl. Slice 8oz of fresh bocconcini mozzarella into a bowl. Slice a pound of fresh tomatoes in. Tear up about half a bunch of basil leaves into small pieces and toss them in. Pour on two tablespoons of virgin olive oil. Pour on two tablespoons of balsamic vinegar. Add a little salt and pepper to taste. Toss it all together. Enjoy!
