A long time ago, while traveling in Europe, I was introduced to an amazing mouth watering sandwich. The Caprese Sandwich is smack full of fresh flavor, from the Mozzarella cheese to the tomatoes, to basil I grew in my AeroGarden right at home. Drizzled with a touch of balsamic vinegar, and served on a roll, you’ll want try this for lunch soon.
Let me tell you… you really can’t dispute the flavor of basil picked right off a homegrown plant. Fragrant and oh so Yum.
I remember first having a Caprese Sandwich at a little deli. I can’t for the life of me remember exactly where it was at, but I think it was on the way to Verona from somewhere else in Italy. Yeah, this was quite a while ago. What I do remember is the sandwich… and ever since, I have loved the combination of a cheese and tomato vegetarian sandwich.

I’m thrilled with the ease of use of my AeroGarden. It is simple to use and really thrilling to watch herbs grow right inside my house. I can’t get over how fragrant this basil is! Seriously, I walk into the room where my AeroGarden is, and am greeted with the scent of basil–which I love.
The plants all took off great, with the exception of the cilantro. I’m starting a replacement seed though, so I’m sure that will come up in no time.
Ah… Gardening in the winter in Wisconsin. This makes me want to buy another AeroGarden so I can have fresh tomatoes all winter long. And lettuce. And hmmm… what else should I plant?
