tonight’s loot

pulled from the garden

When I set up my tomato garden, I had visions of drowning this site with tomato porn….I had soo many recipes to test!

Reality set in and I caught myself snacking out in the garden more than bringing them in the kitchen to use in recipes. Tonight was a bit different though! I took a break from snacking for a few days and had this loot tonight!

And because I needed to make something quick and simple, I made little pizzas (with Trader Joe’s Flatbreads)

ding ding ding ding!

The results? AMAZING.

I have never experienced that much sweetness from a tomato. The roasting of the tomatoes on that gooey mozzarella really brought out their natural sugar.

There’s nothing better than cutting up tomatoes from your own garden!

Oh the visions I have for NEXT summer. I might just go a little overboard….

    That looks so delicious! I’m so jealous. We’re having a really wet summer and
    have yet to get any tomatoes. The flowers are there, but no red jewels yet. Hopefully
    it’ll be a late harvest. Until then, I’ll just have to live through you!

    it’s hard to say if anything beats a tomato, plucked from the vine and eaten while still warmed from the sun, but these lil’ pies look pretty amazing!

    Your tomatoes are gorgeous!!! I so dearly want a tomato garden (apartment living, sigh). Shall live vicariously through your pictures instead!

    I know what you mean! I want to plant about 20 more plants next year because we are getting really spoiled around here with the abundance of sungolds from our garden. Who cares about flowers when I can have something we can eat!?

    The pizzas look yummy – might have to make some ourselves this weekend 🙂
