As I lay last week in the dentist chair, wincing from not only the sound of the driller thingy, but from the all-too-chipper hygienist who was going into great detail of her glory days playing high school basketball, I wondered why anyone actually goes to the dentist anyways.
It has only got to be for the goodie bags.
So I start to willingly zone...Eyes proceed to close now and take you off to a faw, faw away land....pronto.
In the distance, above the masked chatter and he whirling, I hear Ms. Hoda Hoda talking about to tomatoes, all different kinds and what to make with them. I really want to open my eyes, but then the chatter might increase and so will the drilly thing, bleh. Not that I don't dig a bubbly hygienist, but I'm not a morning person and it's hard to be super involved with a hand, drill, cleaner, water and vacuum in ones mouth.
Hoda goes on talking with Adam Rapoport about tomatoes and cheese, I then managed to squint one eye open because of what I have been looking for. Several years back, on a trip to Florida, we had sliced tomatoes with a grilled piece of cheese for an appetizer and it was deeeelish.
This wasn't the exact same as what I was looking for, but it sure was close and looked oh so good.
Heirloom Tomato and Feta Sandwich
Two Large Tomatoes
Freshly Ground Pepper
Block of Feta
Block of Mozzarella
1. Lightly toast thick slices of white bread, a Pullman loaf is ideal (I couldn't find this so I just found a large, white loaf)
2. Drizzle with Olive Oil
3. Add tomato slices, salt, freshly ground pepper, slabs of feta (I crumbled it), fresh oregano and more oil.
I made the feta for the hubs and myself, then used the mozzarella for the offspring, they didn't like the 'stinky' cheese.
