Last week I was deep into studying for a final and writing one last paper for my summer classes.  Everyone in the house knew it was a fend for yourself week unless you saw a meal on the table at dinnertime.  Monday was crazy for everyone and our schedules did not match up to be in the house at the same time until late evening  Since it was Meatless Monday, I felt we needed something to snack on that would be light and available when everyone decided to eat.  This Tomato and Mozzarella with Basil Skewer was perfect!  Easy to prepare and portable for us busy people.  I like to drizzle a bit of olive oil infused with garlic and rosemary over them but others in the family do not so I left them “naked” and set the oil out as optional.
