Tonight, I made homemade salsa using a half-dozen of my homegrown tomatoes. It was a little heavy on the red onion, but otherwise quite tasty.

To accompany the salsa, we had grilled chicken (marinated in Penzey's fajita seasoning, lime juice, and a bit of corn oil), tortillas, cheese, and rice.   Every one ate well, which is always a nice surprise with two small kids.  The kids are cheese lovers, just like Tom.

Now that the kids are asleep, we're watching A Prairie Home Companion that's been sitting on the TiVo for the last two months. We haven't dallied due to a lack of interest. It's because the mood hasn't been right. Tonight, it is.

I just froze 2 cups of (peeled, seeded, and diced) tomatoes. 

That makes me very happy. :) I feel like I accomplished something.

My big bugaboo right now is that the heat makes them rip

It's absurdly hot today. Yes, it's June in Georgia, but it shouldn't be in the upper 90s already!

This weekend has been rather low-key. Tom set-up the automatic drip system for my veggie plants. I've been watering by hand; however, since we'll be gone for a week soon, we needed something to take care of my beauties!



Once the kids wake up, we're walking down the street to a block party. It appears there will be a bouncy castle, which will either thrill or terrify Amelia. Katie will be cruising in style in her wagon. :) As for me? I'll be sweating like a fiend.

The little tomato seedlings I started back in April have produced fruit! I have an assortment of very immature Roma, Beefsteak, and Big Boy tomatoes growing.

My pepper plants are growing well, and have just started to flower. I hope they are fruitful as well!

I can't wait to cook with 'em all. :D
