I really love planning meals around whatever is ripe in the garden, like ALL VARIETIES OF MY TOMATOES right now.
The Mexican Midgets have been prolific for two or three weeks, so they’ve been getting the earliest workout. (I like shirts and dresses with big pockets so that I can load them up with produce. In this case, it was a little steamy outside and the lens was immediately covered in condensation.)
Jamie Oliver’s Food Revolution has some really kicking recipes. I made a basil, cherry tomato, cheddar omelet the other day and it was magnificent. Last night, I tried the cherry tomato sauce with pasta. Absolutely divine, especially with that nice dash of balsamic vinegar.
And to think that I once felt that cherry tomatoes were only good for salads. Pshaw. I’ve come a long way since the 80s.
