Shipping is a terrible thing to do to vegetables. They probably get jet-lagged, just like people. ~Elizabeth Berry
We had a wonderful harvest this week. Tomatoes, Red Onions (my secret love affair), carrots, beets, cucumbers, squash, zucchini.
I started out with a list of things to make and ended up making a lovely combo of them all. You can either turn this into a salsa, bruschetta, gazpacho, or slap it all on a sandwich with cheese and call it a day :)
anyway, it turned out lovely and the recipe is at the end of the post.
|I had a serious helper|
|chop chop chop those maters|
|keep the juice, the seeds, the flesh, the meat|
|star of show: fresh herbs (basil, rosemary, thyme, oregano)|
|chop chop chop|
|I just couldn't believe how long he lasted|
|really good sensory entertainment|
|don't forget the garlic. NEVER forget the GARLIC.|

If God had intended us to follow recipes,
He wouldn't have given us grandmothers.
Tomatoes (varieties or not, chopped)
Herbs (mine listed above)
Peppers (variety if you can)
chop and mix all together. The longer it sits, the better.
Nothing would be more tiresome than eating and drinking if God had not made them a pleasure as well as a necessity. ~Voltaire
