Tomato Pickin'

Warm summer Saturdays beg for road trips.  So, last weekend while my sister and nephew were in town visiting, we loaded up the car seats & strollers and headed to Sonoma for the day.  One of my MIL's neighbors let us go tomato pickin' in their amazing backyard.  The tomatoes were ripe and juicy and begging to be picked so we filled our little box to the brim with as many as we could fit.  Orange, red, yellow - all ready to come home with us.  I used a lot of them to make roasted tomato & garlic soup but we reserved quite a few for my newest favorite salad - tomato, cucumber, basil, & blue cheese.  Mmm.... I could eat it all day everyday.  On Sunday, I mixed it with some corn, bacon, and a big bed of lettuce for a yummy late summer dinner.  I highly recommend grabbing some tomatoes (fresh off the vine if you can!) and whipping that salad together asap.  You won't regret it.
