Roasted Tomatoes

What a crazy year. I am STILL harvesting November.  In Boise. They aren't as tasty as the fresh fruit of summer, but when roasted, they're a dream. Loosely chop tomatoes, even greenish ones, and place on a baking sheet. Drizzle with olive oil, minced garlic, salt, balsamic vinegar and plenty of basil. The dried basil is from my garden this year. Bake at 300 degrees for several hours, until juicy and browned. Puree and use as a sauce, a cream sauce base, or freeze to use later.

So, Your Ornamental Plum Tree Produced Fruit this Year?

This happened to several of my friends' trees. The bonus is free plums for me and a nice batch of freezer jam.

Homemade pesto put to yummy use on a Caprese grilled cheese on sourdough. I just look for anything I can add pesto to!

Dreaming of French Fries

I'm an Idaho girl who loves French fries. Look at this pile of goodness. Idaho potatoes, sprinkled with salt, shaved Parmesan cheese, candied bacon and a balsamic vinegar reduction. This plate was seriously my whole dinner at Edge Brewing - a new place in town.
