It's raining big, fat tomatoes at my house! Actually, the top photo is of tomatoes picked in the rain. I wait for this time all year long, but something always makes me crazy in the Spring and I over plant in wild anticipation of these juicy beauties come September. Now I'm scrambling to serve and preserve every last one of them. Here are some of my family's favorite ways to eat tomatoes:
Sliced cherry sungolds with fresh grape mozzerella and a drizzle of extra virgin olive oil.
Roasted with eggplant, peppers, squash and onions on bed of linguini.
and our all time favorite...The Pestodilla!
Make a quesadilla (melted cheese in a folded tortilla) with mozzerella/and or goat cheese. After you take it off the griddle, add a generous dollop of pesto and slices of tomato. So simple, but everyone is thrilled and asks for seconds...even thirds!
Just a little reminder: today is the last day to enter for the custom order give-away. Please leave a comment here before midnight EST and I'll put your number into the random generator. I've been completely blown away by your wonderful ideas and am delighted that so many of you have de-lurked to come play. Have a great weekend!
