We have a few tomatoes to go through between now and Tuesday morning when we fly west.

We had planned to bring a huge basket over to Linda and David yesterday – and walked out of the house without them.  The vines are really going crazy right now.  We just can’t keep up.  We’ll pawn as many off as we can tomorrow, and then I’ll just have to blanch ’em and freeze ’em, or make some sauce – something.  They won’t go to waste.

Which brings us to lunch, today…  Empanadas I made a while back and froze, a fresh-sliced tomato, drizzled with basil oil.

Basil oil is simply olive oil and basil mixed in the blender with a bit of salt and pepper.  That’s it.

These tomatoes are just so good…..

More for dinner, tonight!
