For the past four weeks or so, a lot of real estate in our kitchen has been taken up by tomatoes. Sometime around the first of the month, I pulled everything that looked like it was going to ripen off the vine, afraid that Portland’s dreaded winter rains were imminent (And here we are, October […]

I keep thinking that today is Wednesday. Or Thursday. If either of those is true, I’m supposed to be at a meeting right now and I’ve missed a couple of story deadlines. We are gearing up for a big event at work and it’s been tough to stay on top of things, but I feel […]

This summer, so far I have harvested over 33 lbs of tomatoes from our backyard. That is a lot of tomatoes! We eat quite a few tomatoes but not enough to make 33 lbs. over four weeks reasonable. So what to do? Make tomato soup, of course. If you don’t want to can, this stuff […]

Tomato, Basil and Mozzarella Sandwich

So, it’s been a few days since I’ve posted. I posted Sunday morning – early – so it feels like it’s been two days even though it really hasn’t. I know it’s only Monday night, but I am kind of amazed at how quickly things are moving this week. On Sunday (after my post, but […]

Fried Egg and English Muffin Stacker Thing

I do not know exactly what to call this – it’s not really an open face sandwich at this point, so I’m going with “stacker.” Trademark pending. 😉 This is what I made for breakfast on Saturday. I took Dave to the airport verrrrrry early in the morning, and then I went home and went […]
