We picked 20 or more cherry tomatoes but instead of standing in the garden and eating them right off the vine we acted like grownups (for once) and took them inside the house where they sat on the counter for an hour while we decided what to make for dinner. The fact that it was 105 degrees and we didn’t want to COOK anything factored into our meal planning.
We decided to make caprese salad (with basil, people, we also have basil) and served it with roasted red pepper hummus, fresh cucumber slices and barbequed seitan. What’s seitan you say? Just click here to find out.
Did you ever think you’d stop to take pictures of your plate BEFORE you ate dinner? Me either. But oh my gosh this plate was just too beautiful so we HAD to show you. It’s all the more exciting because it features the first tomato harvest!
