Gift From The Garden

Bob and Janet’s garden went wild this season. They had so many tomatoes, and different varieties of tomatoes too, as well as peppers and beets. Bob called and asked if I would take some more tomatoes off their hands, since Janet was “sick of tomatoes”. Of course I am going to take this tasty gift. We LOVE tomatoes. This was my second “harvest” of their very prolific season this year. I can always find plenty of good uses for fresh veggies and tomatoes.

The first thig that came to mind was a tomato tart, drizzled with fresh pesto sauce.

Of course, this only used a handful of tomatoes, but it was a start. I used a few more as part of my Tuscan topping for our steak too. The steak was leftover, but it become new again by adding the Tuscan topping. So, a few more of the tomatoes were used up. Though it doesn’t even look like I made a dent in the tomato box.

I have a sneaky feeling that there will be more tomato recipes coming your way in the very near future. Thank you Janet and Bob for this delicious box of goodies. You know I will always take them and put them to good use. 🙂

Have a great day Everyone. Stay safe and stay well. ‘Til next time.
