Tomato Time

Texture: Mustard Seed by Kim Klassen for Texture Tuesday.
Do you like tomatoes? Tomatoes just add a great taste to so many foods. Have you tried roasted tomatoes? Oh my goodness, if not, you must! Not only are tomatoes great on your regular food like sandwiches, but they are great in so many main dishes. Personally, I can eat them just sliced with a little olive oil, salt and pepper. The heirloom tomatoes are just coming into season. Ohhh, they will make your mouth water! I can't wait to get some Cherokee and Zebra heirlooms. Be on the lookout at your local farmer's market or even your grocery store. It's time to get those tomato recipes out!

This is too wonderful for words! I love the angle, and how the stem looks more like a twisted tree branch... great color and texture, too!

My mouth is watering! As a young girl I would eat tomatoes straight off the vine with a little salt. Your image reminds me of those special times.

Peace!

Hi Sharon,

I love tomatoes and yours look so delicious.
I make a tart with slow roasted tomatoes ( about 4 hours) and it is the most yummy thing.

Happy week

Hello,
I visited your blog today. I just love everything about it. It's pretty, colorful, and unique. I have the exact same tea cup that is pictured on here. Those tomatoes are gorgeous, and my daughter, Jess, just did a post about a recipe that she used tomatoes with. I think you might like to try it. Me and my daughters just started a new blog, and we would love it if you could visit us and follow. The link is: http://redrosealley.blogspot.com I would enjoy coming back to visit you and seeing all your wonderful ideas. You have such a charming blog. Hope to hear from you, and have a sweet day.

My 12 year old likes tomatoes just the way you do and like them no matter how they are sliced or cooked. But my oldest won't touch them. He digs them out of salads. Takes slices off of pizzas -- but will eat tomato soup and spaghetti sauce -- go figure! Have a great week. Tammy
