Although a usual departure from our regular postings- please enjoy a time tested delicious favorite. Buona salute…

Ingredients:

4-6 Roma tomatoes

2 garlic cloves

Extra virgin olive oil

fresh basil leaves

Crusty bread (a loaf of brick over or french do well)

Sea Salt

Slice the tomatoes in half and squeeze out a bit of the seeds and juice. y Chop and dice coarsely. Chop 2  cloves of garlic then chop or tear basil leaves into small pieces.

Mix tomatoes, garlic and basil together with enough olive oil to moisten, add a half teaspoon of salt and set aside for 20 minutes to allow flavors to blend.

 Slice crusty bread into thick slices then toast lightly, rubbing each slice with a garlic clove.  Drizzle with olive oil and sprinkle with salt. Just before serving spoon tomato mixture onto bread. Bellissimo!

salt
 
Slice tomatoes in half.  Over sink, squirt out seeds and juice then coarsely chop/dice. Peel and chop 2 garlic cloves. Chop or tear basil leaves into small pieces. Mix tomatoes, garlic and basil together with enough olive oil to moisten, add a half teaspoon of salt and set aside for 20 minutes to allow flavors to blend.  Slice bread into thick slices, toast (or even better grill over gas grill or charcoal!) then rub each warm slice with a peeled garlic clove.  Drizzle with olive oil and sprinkle with salt. Just before serving spoon tomato mixture onto bread.  Enjoy with Sangiovese wine!

Man

The purest of design, an elemental matrix of muscle wrapped around bone, shelled by flesh and fed by blood. A mortal composite that blends to be one- yet in a whirling division of  structured cells- lies the complex man. 

Machine

Factories shape carbon and forge aero steel.  Heated, crafted and welded to form a working perfection- or perhaps just our perception thereof. Gleaming, sharp cogs mesh in unison and gears that hum with the energy of production.

But not alone, fore this mass of electrons and  particles remains still- until the matrix applies its human force. Utility, elegance and beauty melded into one- is essentially nothing without man.

United, Man Machine transforms the imperfect, somewhat awkward- but ever so fluid synergy of entities- one breathing, one unaware.
