This year we had a hard time getting our tomatoes started but somehow with advice from local farmers about "beating them and not watering so much" we had a crop. But, it was a late crop. DH loves to play with the garden but somehow I get stuck with the work of doing something with the garden. I don't mind adding a tomato to salad or frying some squash but when he came home with tons of green tomatoes and wanted me to do something with them I thought I would show him!
So to the internet I went.
The first "adventure" was a tomato pie! I figured he would not like that at all and surely I would not have to do this again next year. So, my pie....
I figured it would be a one bite pie. But, he has managed to eat 3/4 of the pie.
So a few days later I made a cake. It was a recipe I found on the internet and when my son arrived while I was making it he said it sounded "gross". The funny thing is by the time it was through baking it smelled so good we ALL had a piece. There is now one slice left!
Of course I did do the traditional Fried Green Tomatoes
and Salsa Verde
I am not sure I managed to get out of harvesting the green tomatoes next year since even my son had 3 pieces of the cake and took a slice home to his wife. And DH seems to be eating everything.
I guess it wasn't as bad as I thought. I had fun looking for recipes and found out I'm a better cook than I expected! LOL
Well, I'm in Dallas for the next 10 days watching 4 year old granddaughter Calleigh.
She didn't have a nap today since we took her parents to the airport. So about 7 pm she had a meltdown! I cuddled up with her and we watched Sleeping Beauty for the hundredth time. I watched it earlier with bunny ears on! We do what we have to!
Tomorrow she has T-ball and we will go watch her cousin play later in the day. A no nap day again because of timing so she will likely have another meltdown. Then there is the time change. Oh my....testing grandma!
Well, I think we will actually have a great time once we get in our groove!
Well it has been a fun and long week of quilting. Got a lot done.
Today I did my volunteer thing and was pleased to get a door prize of a set of Cobra Walkie Talkies that pick up weather and charge with the computer. I'm not sure if we will keep them in an emergency kit or give them to grandchildren.
Tomorrow my brother will arrive from New Orleans.
We just had some kids knock on the window. DH just checked it out and he could hear giggling in the distance. I guess it is time for those surveillance cameras. We live in a nice little town but there is always someone out there that is looking for an easy buck. Sounds like this was probably teens goofing off.
I guess my retired Alaska State Trooper can handle the situation.
