Oh Holy Tomato

The season is here!  At last we have our own locally grown tomatoes.  I have three different local growers bringing me the gold of their crops.  When I say gold…. They taste like liquid gold from the sun, especially those little sun gold cherry tomatoes.

So many tomatoes so little time; this weekend the always popular classic Tomato Caprese is on for 300 guests, and at another wedding we're doing a beautiful placed Shiraz Salad (tomato & cucumber with feta & oregano) in a martini glass for a great look.  I'm also really looking forward to our Norwegian bride whose family is flying in from Norway; they will be having just a classic platter of sliced heirloom tomatoes with sea salt and cracked pepper. I hope they enjoy it.
For myself we picked our first "Hillbilly Deluxe" from the plant at home and made it stretch to make 3 bacon and tomato sandwiches. The perfect lunch after a day of yard work.

So many tomatoes, so little time...
