Late Summer Meals

Tomato Bread Salad!

At right, tomato harvest ripens, and tonight we are eating tomato bread salad. Made with big homemade croutons, olive oil, red wine vinegar, fresh mozzarella, ripe, home-grown tomatoes (yowza!) fresh basil from said garden, some organic baby spinach and red onion. A vegetarian treat. Create your own proportions, with tomatoes the star of the show.

We're keeping the salad theme throughout, with a fruit salad of banana, nectarine, figs and oranges. Mega yum!

I harvested the young beets and we'll eat the beets and their greens separately. I love to pop a few cherry tomatoes into my mouth while I'm working in the garden. It's not really work, it's joy.
