Better Late Then Never

Sure it has taken a little longer this year to taste the epitomy of summer, so it is difficult not to feel giddy when Joseph walks in the door with just off the vine (as in he helped pick them) tomatoes. Our friends at Jacob's Cove Farm are growing some of the best tomatoes I have ever seen. They are being grown biodynamically to boot(more on that later). One look at their farm and you know something special is going on there. Tomatoes, melons and cukes all growing vertically, reaching for the proverbial sky and looking good doing it.

These beautiful tomatoes are starring nightly in a Caprese salad as well as a lovely Bruschetta with more to come as inspiration prods us. When you come and eat these beautiful plump vessels of stored sunlight and love, don't feel bad for gushing over them. We'll pretend we don't see.

Oh man...we've been eating heirloom tomatos with every meal these days. The farmers market is full of them! My favorite are the dark green/red ones...they almost look brown sometimes. So delicious!

I just wanted to say that I LOVE Pizzeria Seven Twelve. Seriously, whenever I go it makes me feel special and the food is fantastic. I can't wait for lunch!!!
