Heirloom Tomato Bruschetta

We rarely get anything special from our little local market. So when I walked down the produce aisle and saw these pretty little heirloom tomatoes, I couldn't resist getting a carton even though they were not on the list and were a little more than I would normally pay for a carton of grape tomatoes!

But their pretty colors and tiny little shapes lured me in!
As I walked around the store with my treasures in hand, I was thinking about what I could make with them. The bakery then announced an advertisement for their breads and so I made my way over to see what they had to offer. I found an Italian crusty loaf and immediately thought of bruschetta.
I wasn't going to get my hopes up on fresh mozzarella but decided to scope out the little gourmet cheese island nearby to see if I'd luck out.

I couldn't believe they had some! The stars must have been aligned just right for me to find beautiful heirloom tomatoes, fresh crusty bread AND fresh mozzarella all in one stop to our little local market! That just doesn't happen!

Although it was an unconventional dinner, and not at all what we had intended to have. I made a batch up as soon as I got home and everyone snacked so much, there was no longer a need to make dinner.

It was the perfect meal for a hot summer day. I hope I get as lucky finding baby heirlooms next year!
