Summer in a bowl

Nate, Snoopy and myself stopped by our next door neighbour's yesterday morning and Nate got to go up on the roof deck and pick tomatoes. I think he really enjoyed doing that, there were so many different tomatoes and it was quite the job to keep him from picking them all.

For awhile it seemed like it was still the middle of summer. The sun was out, we were picking ripe tomatoes off the vine, and Snoopy and Mika were stretched out on the deck. And this is what we came home with, a bowl of lovely tomatoes and some basil to go with them.

I decided to make a little tomato salad for dinner with our little bounty. So a little drizzle of extra virgin olive oil and some of the fresh basil, and voila! Summer in a bowl.

Thank you Jean. They tasted heavenly!

Yeah you do! Those green tomatoes were particularly good.

Hmmm, should I be worried that you were able to find me even though I haven't told you about this blog?

I'll never disclose my ways....
