    my absolute fave time of year. nothing... NOTHING beats my dad's beefsteak tomatos. i was so happy to hear they're ready!!

    as per tradition, ate the biggest juciest one first like an apple with nothign but salt, then cut another up and made a tomato/cucumber/onion salad with other stuff from his garden and feta.

    he puts so much tlc into that garden.... and it shows. i've never had better vegetables ever.

    i think i'm going to make some stuffed tomatos and peppers tonight.

    =tina= <--happy as a pig in shit

    explain how the pig is happy?
    did he tell you this or are you asuming that because we've put the pigs in small little pens and forced them to live with twenty or so other pigs this makes them happy.

    I loved stuffed tomatoes I just learned the best way to do it on the barbecue. Thanks again to the food network:D

    Just picked up a bunch of "on the vine" tomatoes at the farmer's Market.

    And some zucchini, egg plant, assorted peppers, garlic, strawberries, an green grapes.

    Every year Cousin Steve hosts a special friends and family event (This year at he Cottage!!) where we show up at 9:00 am with recipes in hand.

    Schedules are made and everyone begins the task of picking, washing, chopping, dicing, slicing and cooking tomatoes.

    You name it, as long as it has tomatoes we make it.

    Pounds and Pounds of Mussels! Fresh Salsa, Brushetta, Pasta and Tomato sauce.

    Kind of like the Festival of beers but better! I loves me tomatoes!

    hahaha reminds me of one year my dad grew a shitload of oregano and had the bushels hanging upside down in our shed to dry. i walked in there and almost pissed myself thinking my dad had some crazy grow op in our backyard.

    what a let down.

    Ivan: can i come!??! :D
