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!
Last night we went to Oregon Garden to see Sawyer Brown in concert. We sat on the ground, forgot to bring coats and got rained on - it was so much fun!
We spread our blankets at the top of the grassy amphitheater under a tree (thank you Jefri). Others got wet while we were dry with a great view. The food was good. The drinks were good and the music was amazing. Don't miss a chance to see Sawyer Brown.
After the concert we took the tram from right behind our seats. Jef and I sat in the front seat with the very fun driver and watched the tiny green frogs hop across the path in the dark. We rode up the winding path to the Garden Resort Hotel and luckily there was a room available.
We enjoyed a nightcap (do we still say nightcap?) in the bar at the main lodge. Each table had a cute couch to sit in, but we chose to gather around the fireplace. We had a great night and loved not driving home in the dark. Our room had a fireplace and a very comfortable bed. It was our first time out without the kids in a long time. What a perfect night!
