The temperatures are changing. Fall is definitely coming and bringing the cooler weather along for the ride. Our beautiful flowers are now brown and stalky. To be honest with you, I am over them and sick of watering every night. Every time I walk by them its hard to believe they were once so gorgeous! But wait, off in the distance, in the backyard, I still see big bunches of red, beautiful red globes like Christmas tree ornaments. The tomato plants are still flourishing!! I enjoyed them all summer preparing everything from Tomato Caprese stacks to homemade sauces. But what the heck will we do with all of them now??
Joy mentioned canning them, UGH....not me. If she wants to do that she can do it alone. However, I will make several batches of sauce for Sunday family dinner and freeze in portions for those nights when I come home late. But for now I will serve them in any salad combination, a simple spicy bruchetta and my mom's favorite butter and tomato sandwiches on fresh white bread.
