So now I have more tomatoes than I know what to do with - we are
picking one of these full every other day. Here is another family
favorite tomato recipe.
Mom's Tomatoes & Mozzarella
4 large tomatoes
1 clove garlic
1 tblsp wine vinegar
1/2 tsp salt
3 tblsp olive oil
1/2 cup chopped parsley
Mix together garlic, vinegar, salt. Add olive oil and mix. Pour
2/3 mixture over tomatoes. Scatter onions, parsley and pepper.
Slice fresh mozzarella and place on top of tomatoes and pour rest
of dressing over. Enjoy!
FINALLY! We have red tomatoes! For a while, I was doubting
whether or not we'd be able to use any of the hundreds of tomatoes
we have....they've been green forever, and it seemed like more just
kept growing without any turning. But alas, they have started to
turn. We actually went out and picked enough last night to make
some Herbed Tomatoes with dinner. This is my grandmother's recipe
and it is so yummy:
Memere's Herbed Tomatoes
6 Ripe tomatoes, peeled and sliced (I do not peel mine, just
1/4 tsp. pepper
1 tsp. salt
1/2 tsp. dried thyme
1/4 cup snipped parsley
1/4 cup snipped chives
2/3 cup vegetable oil
1/4 cup vinegar
Place tomatoes in bowl, sprinkle seasoning and herbs. Combine
oil & vinegar, pour over. Cover and chill for 3 hours, spooning
dressing over a few times. Enjoy!

Ok, so I have to post a blog about Colby, my oldest son.
Today was his first day of second grade at a new school. What a
trooper he is! He was up before his alarm went off and was so
excited he was ready to go a hour before we had to leave for
I took this picture of him sitting at his desk just before he
leaned over to me and said, "Ok, mom, you can leave now. I will be
fine." and pointed towards the door. I must admit I got just a bit
teary eyed at that moment. I'm so happy he had a great first
As a birthday gift for my daughter, I made these
cute little flower hair clips. They were super easy, and thanks
to a clearance sale at Creative Crafts and Frame Shop, they were
really cheap! She LOVED them...think we might have to make some
-Alligator hair clips - I got a package of 6 at Fred Meyer. You
can also get them at any beauty supply store, like Sally's
-Grosgrain ribbon - I just used what I had in my craft stash
-Hot glue gun
-Brads or decorative pearls or gems - again, I just used random
stuff from my stash
Here's what you do:
Open up an alligator clip, and run a bead of hot glue on the
under side of the top piece.
Quickly place the ribbon along the glue, covering the clip.
Now run another bead of hot glue along the top of the clip -
wrap the ribbon around and secure it in place. Cut off any excess.
Here is what I ended up with:
Next, take your silk flowers and pop the flower heads off of the
stems. It's easier to do than you think. Then, pop the middle of
the flower off too.
You have a couple of choices here - either replace the middle
with a brad, or you can hot glue the petal layers together and put
an adhesive pearl or gem in the middle. If you want to use the
flower center that came with the flower, just cut the plastic bit
off that sticks through the petals, and hot glue them all
Then you simply hot glue them to your clips and voila!
