What I like to do with tomatoes

Even though tomato season is, unfortunately, pretty much over (how are we halfway through fall already? How is it almost Thanksgiving!), you might still be able to find a few good ones. If they're perfect, this is what you should do. Excuse the picture, I was testing out a new film camera and the shutter got stuck open. I kind of like it anyway, though.

Quick fresh bruschetta
1 big tomato or a bunch of cherry tomatoes
1 clove garlic, minced or smashed to a paste
1 T olive oil
a pinch of salt
some pepper
a few leaves of basil

Chop up your tomato, mix in everything else, and let sit a little while. Make some toast, and eat as much of the bruschetta as you can before someone else comes along and asks you to share.


  1. Cool photo! Viva film!

    I actually have a bunch of tomatoes from my garden ripening in my kitchen. I need to get to them before the fruit flies do. Thanks for the idea!

  2. I like the photo too! And this sounds tasty.
