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!
Need new books, DVDs, CDs and more? Now is the prime
opportunity to stock up as the Friends of the Mid-Columbia
Libraries host their second annual Giant Book Sale of the year.
This fundraiser is a win-win, allowing you to stock up on gently
used books for your baby to your tween, young adult and even
yourself! Get your hands on great DVDs, CDs and books on tapes to
help make long road trips less daunting!
The Mid-Columbia Libraries will use the money raised
during the book sale to provide valuable support for library
programs and resources. The sale includes items from Keewaydin
Park, Kennewick, Pasco and the West Richland libraries and will
take place October 1st through the
3rd at the Kennewick Library located at
1620 S. Union Street. On Friday and Saturday the sale will run from
9 am to 4 pm, and on Sunday the 3rd the
sale will run from 1 pm to 3 pm.
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!
It never gets easier to prepare kids for the ever looming
vaccinations they must endure. But there are several things you can
do to help make checkups cheerier for your wee ones. If your child
is gearing up for pre-Kindergarten shots, have a conversation with
them about what to expect and the light at the end of the tunnel.
Besides only stinging for a short while, many youngsters might look
past the pain to know there are stickers, a sucker or even the
added bonus of an ice cream trip post doctor visit.
If you have a newborn who doesn't understand why you're letting
someone stick a needle in their legs, have your arsenal of soothing
products reading such as their favorite toy, lovey and a bottle or
breast milk ready to ease their pain. If you're toting older
children to the pediatric checkup, have a conversation with them
about what brother or sister might endure and how they can help
distract the younger sibling from the pain.
Pediatricians may even suggest a little Children's Tylenol prior
to the shots being administered to help alleviate the uncomfortable
feeling the shots bring on. Many doctors and nurses, such as the
ones at Columbia Basin Pediatrics, are great about allowing you to
stay in the exam room after the shots are given so that you can
calm baby or child down.
We did this last year. It was so fun! Find the
registration form for this year here.
