So, I've found lately that eating a couple of lighter snacks in the afternoon instead of an actual lunch has been fitting into my crazy schedule a bit better. Especially when at least one of the snacks includes cheese, I mean... come on. Who doesn't look forward to a little indulgence with cheese? I know I do!
This past week I ordered up a local fresh mozzarella from my grocery service, which I have to say... tastes about a hundred times better from the fresh mozzarella that you get from the grocery store. I was absolutely shocked with the difference between the local fresh mozzarella and what I've become used to. So if you can get your hands on some local mozzarella, I implore you to do so.
You won't regret it!
I know that those deep dark tomatoes look like red grapes, but they too are a product of a local farm here in Texas. Mini Heirloom tomatoes that pack a huge amount of flavor in such a tiny little package.
To go with my fresh mozzarella and my tomatoes, I balled up some farm fresh cantaloupe and encompassed it all in a single wrap of prosciutto. Since I wanted to make my snack into more of a little lunch for me today, I paired it with some steamed asparagus with a little sprinkle of sea salt.
Super fresh, yummy and surprisingly filling!
