This week was a tomato extravaganza. We got 4 medium tomatoes, 3 red stipeys, 1 purple zebra, 4 plums and 15 baby romas. Oh my goodness, I can't wait to eat every single one....um....I mean, I can't wait to share them with my family. We also got one cucumber, one bunch of radishes, one head of lettuce, one small head of fennel, two bell peppers, a bunch of swiss chard and four serrano peppers. We also got three pounds of nectarines.As an update to last week when I asked for recommendations. We made veggie tacos with the corn and tomatoes and zuccini. I made that with sprouted corn tortillas, grass fed pork chorizo and lots and lots of hot sauce. We also made a batch of my ratatouille and polenta, which I have turned into a casserole now so that I can make this the night before and heat it up. This might violate some international food laws, but my family likes it and I think it is better the next day.
Tonight we made leftovers of rice and beans and added a quick tomato and cucumber salad. I tossed on this a little red wine vinegar, olive oil, salt, pepper and some italian seasoning. Easy and simple.
