Tomato Day

Earlier this year Claire read a story to me called "I'm in Charge of Celebrations." In the story a girl joyously celebrates personal holidays to commemorate special events on a personal level. Today is such a day for me.

We have loads of perfectly vine ripened garden tomatoes and two varieties of fresh basil,one green and one purple. These combined with olive oil, sea salt and fresh black pepper create a flavor memory that stays with me all year.

Next March or April, when I am trying to shake off the winter, I can look back at this picture and look forward to a favorite time of the year.

Ok, sprinkle the cheese, broil them and then take a picture. My mouth is watering either way.
