Veggie Treats

Tomato Pie, Oh me, Oh my.

Waaaa....what will we do when we get the last decent tomato of the season? Sniff. This may be my last tomato pie of the summer.

I had a couple of friends over for a bite to eat...roasted butternut squash soup, beet and goat cheese salad and tomato pie. It didn't dawn on me until I served that I'd made a vegetarian dinner.

Someone always asks for a recipe and I've become pretty useless for that. I google all recipes and mix and match the ingredients and instructions. I'd say mine is based closely on this one with much less mayo and cheese.  You can't really hurt fresh tomatoes and cheese can you? Yum.

Goodness, I am watching the new show "Call the Midwife" on PBS and felt another hair go gray watching a breech birth. I've always said I had a story for every gray hair and many of them were from those few moments waiting for a head to be born after the body in a breech delivery and from the minutes between twins.

  2. We just polished off Tomato Pie a few days ago, and I do exactly as you do when cooking. I tweak every recipe I try. Today I made cold watermelon and tomato soup. Topped it with a few shrimp and served it with salad and a crusty baquette. Yes, what will we do after tomato season. Right now they are beautiful as well as delicious!!

  4. Gorgeous. Only thing missing from that tomato pie recipe is a layer of bacon (my idea) and four sticks of butter... heh!
