With more fruit than usual this week, we ate many small fruit salads; the pears were unbelievably sweet, and we really enjoyed the cantaloupe.
I was happy to savor the yellow tomato - so good - as the ones I was growing in my garden turned all black on the bottom as soon as they ripened; I had to toss the entire plant without enjoying a single tomato....
As for cooking/meals, here is what we ate:
- Basil Scalloped Tomatoes and Croutons - recipe courtesy of Oh She Glows. With so many cherry tomatoes on hand, as well as a lush basil plant in the garden, this was the perfect recipe for this time of year. I think I used the wrong kind of bread to make my croutons (they got a little mushy) but this was still a tasty dish.
- Cabbage Salad - my own creation: Napa cabbage and tomatoes dressed with Greek Caesar dressing.
- Eggplant Tacos - a staple meal for us; as soon as I saw the eggplant in our box I knew we'd be having these tacos. Delicious.
- Plum and Tomato Salad with Basil - another gem from The Forest Feast; an unusual but delicious combination.
