Sometimes, I’m in the mood for a little quickie…
Naaaah… Let me start over.
Make that, lately, I’ve really been in the mood for little quickies.
OF COURSE, I’m talking about food here. What DID you think I was talking about?
I mean super quick, light and easy meals.
Like this gorgeous salad right here.
I finally managed to pay a little visit to Marché Jean Talon (Leanne’s recent post totally convinced me that I HAD to go) and I quite simply flipped. It’s literally fresh produce paradise. I wanted to buy EVERYTHING in sight! It’s a good thing that you don’t get to carry a cart around at the market because I would’ve filled mine up so full, I’d have never been able to fit everything in the fridge.
Just with tomatoes alone, I think I could’ve easily filled it up. Cute little tomatoes such as these ones were all over the place, and cost mere pennies.
Of course, I had to buy a ton.
And what better way to use up little cherry tomatoes than by making a quick Caprese Salad? Especially when you happen to be in the mood for quickies…
Doesn’t get much quicker than this, let me tell you,
Quicker, or fresher!
There’s never been a better time to whip up a fresh Caprese Salad!
And since I’m all about quickies tonight… what do you say I make this a quick post for change?
I’ll let the pictures do the talking this time. I think they tell the story much better than I could do it myself, anyway.
Hey, don’t get too used to this, though… Next time, I might have a little bit more to say! 😉
Oh, and when I go back to the market, I promise to give you guys a tour.
