Day 17. Recipe 17.

Valentine's Day is right around the corner. Every year it sneaks up on us like holiday pounds or lettuce in our teeth. Before we know it, we are shopping at the supermarket on Valentine's Day trying to decide between a gorilla balloon and a 12 bath soap shaped hearts for the love of our life.

Not this year.

This year we make the special someone in our life a delicious, simple and lovely Valentine's Day lunch. The recipe below is just the ticket to getting a "Yum!" out of our best chum.


Strawberry Bruschetta

  • 1/2 loaf french bread cut into 1/2 slices
  • 1/2 pound medium strawberries, sliced, tops removed
  • Two tablespoons olive oil divided
  • 1/4 cup balsamic vinegar
  • 1 tablespoon fresh mint leaves
  • salt to taste
  • 4 oz cream cheese or goat cheese at room temperature

Step 1: Line a baking sheet with parchment paper and turn on the oven broiler. Cut the bread into half inch slices and place on the cookie sheet. Drizzle the bread with 1 tablespoon olive oil. Place the bread in the oven for 2-3 minutes until the top is golden brown. Remove from the broiler and set aside.

Step 2: In a medium bowl, place the strawberries, 1 tablespoon olive oil, vinegar, mint leaves and a dash of salt and mix to combine. Let the mixture sit on the counter for about 5 minutes.

Step 3: Spread the cheese on each slice of bread. Divide the strawberry mixture evenly and top the bread with the strawberry mixture. Include a bit of the balsamic from the bottom of the bowl on each slice of bread.
