Most of us have done it. We promise we’re going to have more vegetables and then end up eating one of this post’s featured featured items. Avocados, eggplant, bell peppers, okra…. oops. Guess I should go back and ammend that earlier post about okra…
I’m gonna go with the saying about if three people agree on a defninition it is one. If you agree with me that we’ll call these guys vegetables and Jesus knows what I mean in my prayers when I refer to them as vegetables that should count, right?
So to round up this *POW!* of veggies we’ll end with the fruit that dreamed of being a vegetable (and one I just happened to have way to many of this summer): The Tomato.
Avocado and Heirloom Tomato Toast with Balsamic Drizzle
Caprese-Style Stuffed Tomatoes with Balsamic Reduction
Roasted Tomato Soup with Broiled Cheddar
Roasted Tomato Salsa
Tomato Cobbler with Cornmeal-Cheddar Biscuits
Burrata with White Wine and Garlic Sauteed Tomatoes
I know I’ve been on a really good vegetarian roll for a while but then I saw this and then I just broke down… Sometimes I really just crave a real burger. And this one has done it for me. I’m not craving it right now but knowing of the existence of such a thing and thoroughly undone me. I have never made my own burgers but I do know how it is done. There is nothing standing in my way from this awesomeness! Well perhaps still being rather unwell might but I will be better soon (I have determined!) and then I shall grill… Grill, baby! Grill!
Enjoy the lovely weather these days, Foodie Nation, for they will not last long and then will settle in the great DC heat full of muggy grossness that makes you want to sit in an ice bath and end it all.
