A Hard Night's Tomato

May 19, 2011

Author Notes: It's hot, it's humid, it's 6pm and you just got home to discover you forgot to turn on the AC when you left for work this morning. So when the inevitable question of "What's for dinner?" is asked, what do you do? Tiptoe to the frige and pray. Well, I didn't have any fresh basil or mozzarella, but I spied my daughters string cheese, and an idea was born. -corkageCorkage
