Tomatoes, tomatoes, tomatoes!

This year I wasn't able to grow my own tomatoes since I returned to the States in the middle of summer, but luckily I've received some beautiful tomatoes from my CSA over the past few weeks. Tomatoes are one of my absolute favorite foods, and I just hate to do anything else to them other than slice and eat them when they're this fresh. We often eat this dish when we grill after work...it's so easy to make and so delicious to boot! I debated on whether or not to post this because it seems so basic, but I remember my great grandmother making a plate like this (minus the herbs) every time we went to her house for lunch. As I get back into the swing of working and adjusting to life in the United States, I need the reminder that delicious, healthy food doesn't need to be complicated.

Just slice your tomatoes, sprinkle liberally with salt and pepper, add some chopped fresh basil (or other herb of your choice) and drizzle with some good olive oil.

Tomatoes are my very favorite also. I grew up in tomato country and their juice probably runs through my veins. We're growing our own again this year but also buy some from the organic market downtown on the square on Saturday. I like them best plain also.

So tasty! I love the beautiful colors of your tomatoes... they look so delicious and juicy!

I love tomatoes when they are fresh in the summer! Other times of the year not so much. My father in law introduced me to the loveliness that is fresh white bread, tomato from the garden and a coating of mayo. Sprinkle on a little salt and yum!!!

I also make salads with various types of tomatoes .. love to feel the different tastes! My favorite? The Cone tomato, called in France Cornue des Andes.

Education trains human minds to think and achieve better. They learn that life is too short to be wasted and it instills the right amount of energy in them; that is required to reach the heights of their careers.

The point when students and other learners are given the assignment of inquiring about or making presentation then they looked busy in arranging the assignments on time so that they can get maximum marks. This is conceivable just in case they have guidelines. That is why I recommend the best essay writing service!

When receiving criticism: take time to decide whether it is genuine criticism or whether there is some other reason for it, for example, that someone is angry or frustrated, and you are simply there in front of them. college essays help

Basically generic drugs are very safe to use if you are not suffering with health problems like hearty diseases, kidney disorder and diabetes. Their strength, quality and purity are also certified by the FDA. Generic Viagra drugs are as equivalent like their brand because of similar chemical composition.
