Yummy Tomatoes and Homeschool Park Day

Can't believe fall is upon us ALREADY!! We had a great homeschool 'get-together' at the local park today- it's always fun to just play for awhile~ and forget about the laundry that needs to be ironed... dinner to be cooked... your MUCH more intense karate class tonight, where you feel like a kid going back to school yourself..... :)
Here's to a new year, new friends, cherished old friends, and of course, FUN-FILLED math drill sheets for Elisha- ha ha!!

Carrie- since you asked, the rest of this blog is for you... ok- and anyone else visiting :)

Our top-three favorite ways to use up tomatoes:

1. Basic tomato sandwiches with mayo, (or a yummy vegan avocado mayo-yum!) and sometimes a fried egg on top~

2. Cut up with basil, onion, and garlic, served over pasta or a 'raw' zucchini spaghetti~

And-- drum-roll please........

3. The TOP-SECRET (but since I love y'all I'll share) family salsa recipe:

Grandma's Salsa:

3 medium tomatoes-diced

7-8 scallions-chopped

can olives-chopped finely

small can of green chilies

3 T olive oil

1 1/2 t. red wine vinegar

1 t. garlic

Combine all, adjust seasonings to taste, let sit for a few hours and serve with chips, fresh pitas, or flax crackers~ YUM :)'

Bon Appetit!
