Happy weekend + {salad recipe}

Friday, January 11, 2013

It is Friday, means I will have a happy weekend ahead. My husband is still in US for his business trip, but he got me a happy news yesterday that he managed to get me a Kate Spade's tote bag that I wanted..yay!  Meanwhile, I will just hang out with my daughter at home, we are going to make a coconut cupcakes, then we probably also go to the playground or swimming on Sunday afternoon. It is a good enough to keep our self busy during weekend, otherwise we are going to miss our man as he is away till next Wednesday.

During my Christmas break, I tried few recipes from my all time favorite chef's book - Jamie Oliver. I really love his style of cooking that so homey and easy to follow. I know there is no such word - mothership, however this is exactly what he mentioned in his book, 'The mothership tomatoes salad'. And it is delish!

I used assorted tomatoes- plum, cherry, cocktail, local tomatoes, whatever I saw in the grocery rack I bought them. The original recipe said to use a red wine vinegar which I substitute with balsamic vinegar. The rest of the technique and ingredient I followed the book. 

Here is the result... not as pretty as the book picture haha... but it is really yummy and simple to prepare. Happy weekend.
