I made a Caprese salad this week. I was inspired by Little Things Jan. 7 post. I had most of the ingredients already. I saw the smoked mozzarella at the supermarket and decided to give it a try with the salad. I had been curious about smoked mozzarella for a bit. I love smoked fish so I thought smoked mozzarella had to be yummy also. And I do adore cheese. Well it turns out I really do not like the taste of smoked mozzarella. Maybe it was the brand. I will try another brand and then finally decide if I will never eat it again. So sad. There wasn't really any cheese I do not like till now. Even if my stomach can't digest it too well.

The weather has been so dangerous in some parts lately(California and South East/Africa). I wish I could snap my fingers and make it go away.

And snow in Las Vegas and in Hawaii. What is up?

And may I ask WHAT IN THE HECK IS WRONG WITH PRINCE HARRY!!!! He should have stuck to sending money and supplies to the tsunami/quake victims.

In need of a baby name? How about Yahoo.

I used to be into quizzes a lot. Then I stopped for a while. But I've been finding some fun ones as of late. From

You Are 24 Years Old


Under 12: You are a kid at heart. You still have an optimistic life view - and you look at the world with awe.

13-19: You are a teenager at heart. You question authority and are still trying to find your place in this world.

20-29: You are a twentysomething at heart. You feel excited about what's to come... love, work, and new experiences.

30-39: You are a thirtysomething at heart. You've had a taste of success and true love, but you want more!

40+: You are a mature adult. You've been through most of the ups and downs of life already. Now you get to sit back and relax.

And Jenn is back!!

Hi Ani,
My name is Chryselle and I'm from India. Your blog is nice and I totally identified with your post about how accident prone you seem to be - I seem to be clumsy as well, get all sorts of scrapes and bruises by just being careless - managed to scrape my toe with the fridge door yesterday (don't ask how I managed to do that!) but that's life as I know it! I'll be back to visit again! Cheers!

Hey. Your link is not working. Thanks for visiting. How do people from India keep finding my blog?

Cheese is indeed something to be particular about! I do like that type of salad, smoked mozza and all. But I don't go near brie. Go figure :)

It had to be the brand then. I'll have to give it another go.

Oh my I looooove Brie. Especially with herbs.

I think they need a character on the Sopranos named Smokey Mozzarella. This is Lou "Smokey Mozzarella" Pallatello. You call him Louie Motts for short, but never call him "the big cheese". hehe

Hi Ani,
I love Capri salads - Peter and I ate one at every meal on our honeymoon in Italy. I make them alot in the summertime for a nice side dish, fast and easy and tasty too. I have never used smoked mozzarella, just the fresh (expensive) kind. See ya!

I find the fresh kind much tastier.
