Tomato Bruschetta

To make up for such a late dinner, Joey and I whipped up some tomato bruschetta for Katie's visit

2 small tomatoes
2 T minced onion
4 basil leaves
2 T olive oil
black pepper
1/2 clove garlic
8 1/3 inch thick baguette slices

-Dice tomatoes int 1/4" cubes, removing seeds.
-Cut basil into thin strips
-Toast the baguette slices on a grill or toaster oven until golden. We used tongs and held them over the gas burners--we didn't make them golden enough.
-Rub the cut end of garlic over the toasted bread
-Put the tomato, onion and basil into a mixing bowl. Add 2 T olive oil.
-Season to taste with salt and pepper and stir ingredients together. Let sit for 3 minutes.
-Top the toasted baguette slices with the mixture and eat!
