With the weather we're having — it's Octoberish — it seems like the wrong season for this salad. Nevertheless, we are getting our first ripe tomatoes out of the vegetable garden, so we're eating them the way we like to eat them when they start to ripen.
With balsamic vinegar and olive oil, that is, over the cheese and tomatoes. It was mozzarella di buffula, not a cow's milk cheese. And basil we've grown in the greenhouse.
I think we'll be seeing an improvement in the weather over the next few days. We had hard downpours yesterday, especially in the morning. One giboulée happened while I was filling up the Peugeot's fuel tank up at SuperU. I didn't exactly get soaked, but the rain was hard and windblown.
