We seem to eat a lot of chicken and because of that I am always looking for new and wonderful recipes so that our meals don't always taste the same. Along with chicken recipes, I am also looking for wonderful flavours and spices to add to the recipes.

I have been fortune enough to be given a Wondermill through Grain Mill Wagon and absolutely love it. We have had so much fun grinding my own flour. So far we have ground black-eyed peas, popcorn and brown rice. It is easy and I am wondering if it is cheaper to do it this way then buying these different flours. You can grind all sorts of whole grains and also beans. They have a list of what the Wondermill Grain Mill can Grind.

This month has gone by like a flash. It is a good thing that I did my CIC early or I would not be posting today. What is CIC, you ask. Each month we are given two ingredients and we need to come up with a recipe with these two ingredients. We are given the ingredients on the first of the month and post on the 20th. You can decide if you want to join each month, which is great. There is a button at the bottom of the post that you can click to find out more information.

I love Caprese Salad... tomatoes, basil, mozzarella cheese.. What is not to like. My sweet Basil has been running wild. I am drying some out as I can't use it fast enough. This year I decided to plant it in a pot and place it outside. It has gone like wild fire. So yesterday as I was thinking what to make for my breakfast, lunch and dinner... Yes, I only ate once as I didn't get out of bed until mid afternoon... I thought of having a Caprese Salad. Then I remembered that I had some cheese buns and thought why not put my salad on top of the bun and broil it... YUM it was so good.
Caprese on a Bun
I don't really have any amounts for this recipes.
1 cheese bun cut in half
1 cheese bun cut in half
tomato slices (thin slice)
salt and pepper
Croutons crumbled- I used Seasoned Croutons from New York Texas Toast (you could also use bread crumbs)
Slice cheese bun in half and toast. Once toasted, add tomato slices (I used about 3 per half). Sprinkle Salt and Pepper to taste. Add crouton crumbs. Drizzle with olive oil and balsamic vinegar. Add minced fresh basil and pearl mozzarella. Place under broiler until mozzarella cheese is starting to melt and slightly brown. Garnish with small amount of fresh basil is wanted. Enjoy.
I can't wait until I can get some fresh tomatoes from my garden to make this. It was great with store bought tomatoes... but will be absolutely amazing with fresh home grown tomatoes... I will be out every day looking at my tomatoes ~ you can count on that.
