I’m so excited because these are our first organic tomatoes!

Many thanks to our sweet neighbor who kept them watered! 

  Anyway, while

we were there last week….we picked the vines CLEAN!

an empty PLATE! 


Do you have an Olive Oil Company in your city?

They will also let you sample as many oils, vinegars and sea salts as you like….along

with their wonderful bread.

Be careful….. if you’re anything like me, this could be harmful to your pocketbook!




I’ve gone a little bonkers over tomatoes and cheese lately.

Check out this recipe from food and wine!

I hope you’re enjoying the tastes of summer!

See you soon!

Good Morning Mary, your food looks delicious, perfect for a warm sunny day. May I ask what is EVOO, I have never come across it before. Best Wishes Daphne

These dishes look so delicious, Mary. There's nothing quite like home grown tomatoes, and together with mozerella cheese, you have a yummy meal. I will have to show Jess and Nel these dishes. They love to experiment in the kitchen.

If you're into cooking with tomatoes lately, I just remembered Jess did a post about a dish called Insalata Caprese. If you want to check it out, it is the post in July, 2011. It sounds similar to the one you have on here. Have a nice weekend.
