Tomatoes and Recipes

We are having a banner season with our tomato crop, this year!

All photos courtesy of my 10 year old helper.

I have been making lots of salsa and grilled tomato sandwiches.

Grilled tomato sandwiches are my favorite lunch during the summer:
Take a slice of bread (whole grain, prefered)
Pick four leaves of basil out of the yard and lay on the bread.
Place some yummy tomato slices on the basil.
Sprinkle with salt and cracked pepper.
Lay a slice of Mozarella cheese on top.
Bake/broil at 400 degrees for about 5 minutes, or until cheese melts.
Yummy, yum, yum!

Today, I did not have the bread I prefer (healthy whole grain), but had to use the kids' 'honey wheat,' instead. Also - the basil is hidden under the tomato.

Pin It!
