Happy Earth Day! Today I’m celebrating with one of my favorite recipes: Tomato, Mozzarella and Basil Bruschetta.
Summer is getting ready to be in full swing and there’s nothing I look forward to more than fresh, organic tomatoes and basil from my mom’s garden. She’s got a green thumb to die for.
Which is definitely something I didn’t inherit.
And since Earth Day is nationally recognized… it has to be celebrated, right? I try to recognize Earth Day every day by being as “green” as possible. But what better way is there to celebrate than with a glass (or two) of Estancia wine?
Estancia is committed to renewable energy through their winery’s Solar Project, which generates 75% of the winery’s energy. I drank their Pinot Noir with this bruschetta, but their chardonnay would have paired nicely as well.
Honestly, I’m a beer and cocktail girl, but I must say I did enjoy this wine. I am by no means a wine connoisseur. When I drink wine, I either know if I like it or if I don’t. The smooth berry flavor of their Pinot Noir had me pouring a
second third glass… but I was home and drinking responsibly.
My goal this year to help protect my earth is to avoid using pesticides, plant my own organic garden (help, Mama!) and recycle as much as I can.
I hope you enjoy this simple recipe that I prepared with organic ingredients.
