This I recall to my mind, therefore have I hope. It is of the Lord’s mercies that we are not consumed, because his compassions fail not. They are new every moring: great is thy faithfulness. The Lord is my portion saith my soul: therefore will I hope in him. The Lord is good unto them that wait for Him, to the soul that seeketh him. It is good that a man should both hope and quietly wait for the salvation of the LORD. Lamentations 3: 21-26

I think I've had this before and it was pretty good, but I never got the recipe - thanks for sharing!

Oh. Yummy. We love tomatoes at our house. My little girl eats them as if it was fruit.

Oh my! This looks delish and I think it will make its way onto my table tonight with our spaghetti and french bread. Anything with fresh mozzarella and basil is divine to me. Our homegrown tomatoes are just starting to ripen so this will be especially yummy.
Thanks so much for sharing.

Oh thank you!
One of my sons is due home and he will love this.
I'll substitute the mozzarella, because I have none and the shops are closed.
Thank you very much!
