It might be coincidental that I’m trying to get my fill of fresh tomatoes and peaches while they’re in season and that I have to pay my quarterly estimated taxes tomorrow. Because Mr. Tax Man isn’t a fun or understanding guy, I’ve been trying to save up to pay him. So, I’ve avoided grocery stores and am trying to live on tomatoes and peaches.
Here are some of the creative menu items I’ve had. I’m using up the last of my garden’s basil, too.
- Sliced tomato and mayo sandwich on toasted wheat bread
- Tomato and basil pasta
- Tomato, fresh mozzarella and basil salad
- Popcorn with a side of peaches
I also have to admit to doing the “frat boy” eating thing – standing over the sink w/ a salt shaker and eating a tomato like an apple. I must not be tomatoed- or peached-out yet, because I just bought another bunch of both. Hey, I’ll be happy I did in the middle of winter when both items are hard as cue balls and tasteless.
