Good Lookin' Tomato(es)

I think I have eaten more tomatoes this summer than ever before.  It's been a banner year.  (For tomatoes in general and my tomato consumption in particular.)

Blind Luck

Here are some shots I got around the house this weekend.  So much sun.  So many shadows.  So much fun.

Bamboo shadows through dining room window blinds:

Shadows of "ornaments" and blinds on living room wall:

Heirloom Tomato Salad (Or What I Eat For Dinner 2-3 Nights A Week This Time of Year)

Sliced heirloom tomatoes tossed with GOOD olive oil, minced garlic, sea salt and chiffonade of basil.  So good.  Honestly, one of my favorite "dishes."

Thai Green Bean and Tomato Salad

This was surprisingly tasty for how easy it was to make.  Dressing: lime juice, fish sauce, pinch of sugar, a few slices of chile.  Salad: Blanched green beans, hunks of tomato, sliced scallion and cilantro.  Toss with dressing, top with ground peanuts.
