Late lunch

   As I rushed around getting things done today I realized I needed to feed my children lunch. duh.  After baking them a quick pizza I spied a couple ripe romas on the counter.  Those ripe beauties needed to be eaten soon, and my basil plant is producing more than I can use. I need to make some pesto (but that's a different post).  What better way to use fresh summer tomatoes and basil than to make Insalata Caprese!  Simply slice your tomatoes, chunk up some mozarella (fresh would be awesome, but I used what I had). Spread some fresh basil about.  Drizzle with some extra virgin olive oil, a little salt and fresh ground black pepper.  If you have capers they would be a nice addition.
