Strawberry Bruchetta

To Make:
Strawberry Bruschetta

2 cups strawberries, hulled and diced
1 tbsp. sugar
1 French baguette, sliced on a bias (it doesn't have to be the demi kind, just fresh!)
goat cheese, or brie, or mascarpone
1 tbsp. olive oil
balsamic vinegar
minced basil leaves
Freshly ground black pepper

Preheat oven to 350, Combine the  strawberries and sugar in a small bowl; toss to combine.  Let the berries macerate for about 30 minutes so that they begin to release their juices.  Spread a layer of one of the brie or goat cheese on top of each baguette slice.  Place the baguettes with the cheese in the oven for 5-7 minutes, Top each slice with spoonfuls of the strawberry mixture.  Drizzle lightly with olive oil and balsamic vinegar.  Top each slice with the basil leaves and cracked pepper, to taste.  

This is absolutely wonderful for summer! It sounds odd but the flavors really work well together, I do hope you will try it.

Lying beside Jacob just enjoying him

He's in here in the bed with me, it's really late. I hear his breaths and sighs and I know truly how blessed I am. I am so loved! Thank you God.
Now I need to get off of here and snuggle close with him.

My baby is 6 months old

Where has the time gone? I had such huge hopes for my blog. I have been hoping to add something to it daily, with my children there is always something funny being said. I must try harder, I know I can!

Jacob turned 6 months today. The realization that he is half of a year is absolutely unbelievable. He has blessed me, Troy and his brothers with so much joy. He is such a happy baby, he loves to be held and smile and laugh. He's a huge joy. I can't imagine my life without him. He loves me so much and I am so proud to be his mommy. My boy's are amazing and I am so thankful to God for them.

Happy half Birthday Jacob!
