Summer Glory

Those who have had a "real" tomato know that it is one of the great joys of summer. Sadly, this is an elusive find. Even the farmers' markets in our area are more likely to offer industrial tomatoes. 


The last few weeks have seen a few vendors selling the real thing! We have a small pile in the kitchen.

Lunch was comprised of leftovers (including the final piece of poached chicken with a bit of bunnies and greens), and this wonderful salad. OPO cucumber, tomato, olive oil, S&P, and a splash of red wine vinegar. This was a throwback to many meals with my family growing up when the garden was in full production!


We all nearly cried, it was so good.

Looks like you guys are putting the vegs to good use. I am glad you know how to make fried chicken. Maybe we can have it for Christmas dinner?

I need to start thinking about options. We'll add this to the list!
