My mom loves tomatoes especially when they are big like your parent's tomato and she puts them in salads too! To me, tomatoes aren't as good as milk bones but I guess my mom won't ever believe me!
My mom is finally getting her butt in gear to blog most every day so I'm hoping her next step is to get me in on this Olympics thingy...paws crossed that she gets it together because I'm ready to compete!

Finn said...

YUM! That salad looks delicious! Glad you got to taste a little!

When the parents went to see Grandpa he sent back tons of tomatoes with them. Mommy says he has tomato trees this year (no kidding they are over 6ft tall) . They sure are tasty.

I think I would rather have your dinner than mine last night!! Yummmmmyyyy!!

I hate to tell you how many maters we've had (and given away) this year... But we planted a crapload of them. But we're actually down more than we should be because of that blossom end rot.

I know what you said about planting in the same place, but I promise, they are not even close to the same place. I'm thinking a combination of the weather and soil done did my maters in.

Total I'm making tomato sauce and canning. :D that is after picking up something I've ALWAYS wanted... a 14.8 cu feet freezer. I'm gonna be calling for a 1/4 cow and 1/2 pig to be processed and packed for me ASAP. Then we will all (humans and 4 leggers alike) will be eating high on the hog (uhm, cow) for a long while!!

Have a GREAT weekend! And stay away from that coughin' fit you had about the coffee -wink-

My goodness. That salad is making Mommy droll over here. We had our breakfast already but she didn't. Salad for Breakfast? Why not.

Matilda the Boxer said...

That looks yummy! My momma can't grow anything, so our only food comes from the store.

Wooo We love home groen veggies! We just did a post on our GREEN CORNER about two dishes we made with 100% homegrown products! It's so much funier to cook that plain old supermarket veggies!
Lots of slobber,

Rubbing salt in our wounds Frankie, we have not even got flowers on our tom plants. The grey skies and continuous rain has ruined all our crops. Have a bumper harvest and think of us.
Best wishes Molly
