sleepy time tip: tomatoes

Are your counters overflowing with the remnants of summer's bounty?  Tomatoes are everywhere in my kitchen at this very moment.  Everyday I toss out another one (partially because of the fruit flies enjoying a juicy puncture wound and partially because one less is one less).  Smitten Kitchen, my favorite food blog has some wonderful dishes that use up lots of them!  If you've never been there, the food photography is brillant.  You'll want to return for every meal of the day just to stare.

My hand picked tomato favorites from Smitten Kitchen:

Tomato Sauce with Onion and Butter

Scalloped Tomatoes with Croutons

Classic Cobb Salad

Slow Roasted Tomatoes

It all sounds fine and dandy to do something with them, and fast, but come on, I'd rather just keep slicing them for sandwiches as needed.  That's my approach to just keep the status quo.

Speaking of things that are fine and dandy, gray and turquoise are back on Monday.  I'll show you how to make a removable ribbed knit flower that can go from skirt to hair just like *that*.

Happy weekend and Happy Birthday, Mom!
