“Summer time and the living is easy.” Really? Easy, maybe; HOT, yes! Today was the tenth day in a row with high temperatures above 90 degrees and humidity to match.

It was easy to prepare, and most importantly delicious. BeeBop and I enjoyed it for dinner alongside a big salad. I can also see how this recipe could be the basis for all sorts of variations. If I were serving this for a cocktail party, for instance, I would cut the rounds with a 2-inch biscuit cutter, use the same toppings, except substitute either diced tomato or slices from a roma/plum tomato. Even sliced large cherry tomatoes would work.  Also, you could use this basic concept for a sweet tart using berries with sweetened cream cheese or a brie and apricot preserve combination. Thanks again to Ina Garten for a great basic recipe with all sorts of possibilities.
