Summertime brings with it the best tasting produce and tomatoes fresh from the vine are one of my favourites.
Cherry tomatoes make a delicious snack and when I am outside gardening I cannot pass by the tomato plants without having a wee nibble...perhaps that is why we never get a huge harvest from the plants!
Tomatoes looking gorgeous and juicy.
They'd make a great painting if one were clever enough to capture the light.
I made a quick and easy salad with some of these...

Cut the tomatoes in thick slices, sprinkle them with a fresh grating of sea salt, then drizzle on a bit of balsamic vinegar and top it all with a bit of grated mozzarella.
The taste is fresh, it's fast and fabulous.
I recently went to a baby shower of a dear friend and her daughter is expecting her first baby.
Such an exciting time for all, and it will be so exciting.
I took along my signature appie...
"easy peasy stuffed eggs."
~ Hostess of The Humble Bungalow's Stuffed Eggs ~
Bring a dozen free range eggs to a rolling boil and cook for 12 minutes.
Drain pot and fill with cold water.
Change water several times until eggs are cool to the touch.
Peel and halve.
Remove yolks to a large bowl and mash.
Add 1 heaping tablespoon curry powder, a sprinkle of salt and pepper, 2 tablespoons Dijon mustard, 2 tablespoons green pickle relish and about 1/3 cup of calorie reduced mayonnaise.
Mix all together and place mixture into each egg cavity.
Top with sliced chives and chill.
Serve and watch how fast they get eaten!
We have been away for a few days on our boat and today is Canada Day so I am occupied elsewhere,
I promise that I will get my act together and write a post soon...
thank you for your patience!
For those of you who are reading from the US...in case I am slow at posting
(I have lots of laundry and gardening to catch up on!)
Happy 4th of July !
