The triumphant close of a week of food posts

Bruschetta chicken, for just the husband and me. He said it was tastier than anything he has when he's in Paris. (Go on, husband, flattery will get you everywhere.) Just a simple chicken breast, provolone, and a tomato relish of my own creation:

Several red and yellow garden tomatoes, diced
3 cloves of garlic, minced
1/4 sweet onion, minced
Several basil leaves
A splash of balsamic vinegar
A big drizzle of olive oil

I just let it all marinate in the fridge, and toasted some baguette slices under the broiler. We also had a plate of more olive oil for dipping. So. Good. A nice way to wind down the week.

Have a terrific Labor Day, and make something nice for yourself!
