Fresh Mozzarella and Tomato Sandwiches
I sliced fresh mozzarella and ripe tomato and stacked them with baby spinach leaves on the roll. Drizzled with a robust olive oil, slivered basil, a few drops of balsamic vinegar and generously sprinkled with salt and pepper.
I wrapped them tight for the short trip up the mountain and spent a lovely afternoon walking and picnicking in Rocky Mountain National Park. It is really wonderful to have a national park about 50 minutes away! There was still some snow on the ground here and there but the day was quite warm, in the 70's, and it was bright and sunny. The smell of pine trees and fresh air permeated everything and made us quite hungry for our mother's day picnic. Wonderful! I think food tastes better out here.
