Gosh, I really do love fresh tomatoes from the garden.
Yesterday afternoon, I went out to check on our tomato plants and noticed that I had quite a few cherry tomatoes that were ready to be picked. These things really are just like candy (okay, in a vegetable sort of way). and are probably one of my favorite things to come out of the garden so far.
I also managed to pick about four ripe tomatoes, which have already been put to good use…
This afternoon, Jay came home on his lunch hour and started prepping some of his favorite salsa (err, pico…whatever you’d like to call it). He first made it at our Super Bowl party earlier this year, and since we’re heading over to our friends’ house later tonight for a little “Olympic viewing party,” he figured we’d bring it along. So far, it’s smelling mighty tasty!
When it came time for my own lunch, I made sure to save a few slices of tomato to include in a delicious turkey wrap.
Along with the tomato, I used a few slices of deli turkey, lettuce, pickles, a LOT of avocado, and some honey mustard on a LaTortilla Factory Low-Carb wrap.
On the side, I snacked on some baby carrots and more cherry tomatoes.
A delicious lunch, indeed.
After finishing that up, I treated myself to a little something sweet…
Oh, you know I made sure to save a few of this weekend’s zucchini brownies at home. I’m no dummy.
Time to get back to work…this day is flying by faster than I can keep up with. Yikes!
Question for the Afternoon:
What are some of your favorite ways to eat/cook with tomatoes? Feel free to share any recipes…I have a feeling I’ll be needing some pretty soon!
