What’s Your Special Ingredient and a Mexican Bruschetta Recipe
Hello My Cooking Friend! Today I’m hanging out with Wendy from Around My Family Table and sharing a Mexican Bruschetta Recipe with her. I hope you’ll head over and visit Wendy’s delicious blog and check it out.
Do you wish that you had friends over more often? I know I do.
I’ve been making a real effort lately too. I’ve been trying to not worry as much if there are toys everywhere. I’ve closed my bedroom door so that nobody can see the pile of clothes heaped around the hamper.
And I’ve closed the laundry room door to hide the We Just Got Home Danger Zone. Do you have one of those? Our laundry room is right by the door we come in through. And so, inevitably, it becomes the place where we drop bags, papers, toys, granola bar wrappers and a lot of socks.
Why socks? Both of my kids take their socks off every time we get into the car. I therefore walk into the house with a pair of sweaty mini socks in each hand every single day. Thankfully, dirty socks actually belong in the laundry room so they’re not the cause of any of my problems. But everything else? Oh my!
So I’ve closed a lot of doors and stopped worrying what’s behind them when people come over.
And I’ve been trying to come up with easy things to serve guests as well.
One of the keys to coming up with things to serve to guests is to find something that’s really easy but that people will love. A strategy I often use is to add a single interesting ingredient.
For instance, today I’m sharing a Mexican Bruschetta recipe over at Around My Family Table. This bruschetta recipe is pretty basic and seems a lot like a salsa. You’ve got tomatoes, onions, garlic, cilantro, jalapeno, lime and salt. What makes it special is that it’s sprinkled with queso fresco, a Mexican cheese with a flavor similar to fresh mozzarella and a texture like feta.
To keep things simple, this bruschetta recipe does not require that you, the host, pile everything onto the toast. Instead, it’s served in a bowl with a spoon, toast on the side.
