Photo-a-Day - Sept 2012 - Day 21: Sometimes

Photo-a-Day - Sept 2012 - Day 21: Sometimes
My friends are always such a blessing.  Sometimes, you have a friend who comes with an added blessing of providing me with fresh fruit and vegetables straight out of her garden.

I love it all, but tomatoes; oh my, tomatoes.  I sometimes have them sliced on toast for breakfast.  Sometimes, I cut them up and mix them with cucumbers, basil, a bit of salt and a creamy white balsamic dressing for lunch.  Or sometimes, they are diced and mixed with cooked peas, shrimp and pasta with olive oil and basil for dinner.

My second favorite would be the apples.  Sliced very thin and with a touch of salt, they are better than potato chips.  Sometimes instead, I'll slice them and eat them with cheese; they are so wonderful that way.

Mustn't forget the green peppers.  Those I dice up very finely and freeze, using them, along with diced onion and herbs, in scrambled eggs for breakfast...or sometimes for dinner.  

However I prepare them, it's wonderful to have a friends with a garden that is sometimes bountiful enough she can share that bounty with me.
