Classic Tomato and Feta Bruschetta Bread

This past Sunday was Mother`s day and we debated going out to a restaurant to celebrate. They are usually so busy on that day we therefore decided to have a nice meal at home. On the Sunday afternoon we stopped by Old Navy so Janna could use a gift card she received from the kids. Next to it was an East Side Mario’s and the line up outside was so large it confirmed to us our choice to eat at home was wise!

Home cooked food is always good, right???

Bruschetta bread is quite possibly the dish most requested in our house. Any time that I ask Janna what she wants for dinner, her go to response is bruschetta bread. So, it was quite obvious that when Mothers Day approached, she would be eager to have it as part of the dinner menu. I was happy to make it as bruschetta bread is easy to make, bright and fresh with wonderful flavour.

The sweetness of the tomatoes, the zip of the lemon juice and garlic, the saltiness of the feta and the fresh flavour of the oregano work so well together on a toasted baguette slice.
