Wordless Wednesday - not so wordless

I get stuck in a rut when I cook dinner, usually making the same favorites over and over until we are sick of them. Because of this, I have been trying to experiment a little more using the items from my garden.

Below is what I came up with for dinner.  It was completely consumed by my 11 year old which I can attest is a junk foodaholic.  He almost licked the plate.

Here is the meal run down. Fresh picked green beans, a caprese pinwheel, and a grilled veggie sandwich. The sandwich was a layered with fresh made pesto, roasted eggplant and zucchini, cherokee purple tomatoes, fresh basil and fresh mozzarella cheese. All on a whole grain french bread loaf. I drizzled a little balsamic vinegar on mine and left that as an option to the rest of the fam. My husband said the sandwich was better then next day as the flavors had time to meld together.

This is a new favorite in our house for sure.
