My Quiet Life My Quiet Life

mother's day

We had a nice afternoon on Sunday at my parents’ place for mother’s day.

Amanda and I went to the store and bought stuff to make a big meal. We made a huge giant pot of chicken cacciatore.

The appetizer we made is one of our new favorites – “insalata caprese” which translates roughly to “salad of capri”. It’s just really really fresh mozzarella sliced in half, tomatoes (we used cherry tomatoes), fresh basil, and olive oil. epicurious.com says not to use any balsamic vinegar because it would “destroy” the taste of the mozzarella, but we added a splash with the olive oil. What do they know anyway?
