what to do
preheat oven to 350F.
cut baguette with bread knife into 1/4 inch slices
place on baking sheet.
 brush olive oil onto slices
 sprinkle with salt and pepper.
 bake for six minutes.

while the bread is in the oven toasting
cut mozzarella pearls into thirds
 you'll cut as many as you need for
 two pieces per slice of bread.
 now cut cherry tomatoes in thirds
 or halves if it works better.
 again, making enough to leave two
 pieces of tomato for each piece of bread.
