From The Garden

It's that time of summer again...that time when the tomatoes are ripening at a lightening fast pace and every meal revolves around how to best use them all up.

I personally think that BLT's are the way to go, especially if the tomato is still slightly warm from the summer sun.  And white bread is a must.  Don't even try and convince me otherwise.


The best way to eat a true BLT is standing up at the counter, with the juice of the tomatoes running down your arms.

Last night we used tomatoes in another amazingly amazing way and while I didn't take ONE SINGLE PICTURE of it, it was too good to not share.

1 lb tomatoes, chopped
3/4 C fresh basil, chopped
1/2 C olive oil
1 shallot, chopped
1 1/2 T fresh lemon juice
1 T capers

Mix all together and serve with any grilled meat (we had salmon last night, but it would be great on chicken or beef, too!)
