    Tomatoes for dinner , tonight I sliced some of those gems up from my garden ( yes I am still gardening Judy ) put a smidge of mozzarella on each one, topped with a basil leaf. Broiled under the broiler in the oven, what a nice treat and also had two ears of corn on the cob with that,,,,,

    Lunch was a tomato sandwich, toasted wheat bread, nice juicy slice of tomato, with some spin blend on it..a couple of my homemade pickle slices on the side...Yummo

    Breakfast was a couple of slices of toast, wheat of course...a cup of coffee

    snacks today, was a ice cream sandwich and 25 cheese it crackers...

    all in all, 1171 cals..no nutrition numbers however...

    Have a great one!!

    Needless to say, I love tomatoes too! I use it for most meals.

    Tomatoes go with just about anything. I wouldn't have thought tomato goes with sweet potato, but I created a salad last week with chopped left-over sweet potato, chopped tomato, onion and baby spinach (aragule), sprinkled on some sesame seeds and it was not bad!

    Yummy, Nancy. Why don't I think of the broiled tomato with mozzarella and basil? So simple and can't wait to do it. Thanks!

    I love cooked tomatoes, not so crazy about them raw except in salsa. Weird, I know. I threw some grape tomatoes in with my roasted squash, zucchini and garlic tonight. Nom nom Have been on a cherries kick lately for my fruit. Had some at lunch and my blueberries with oatmeal for breakfast.

    Ungh, acorn squash, It really did just hit me that the truly fall veggies are coming in. Almost pumpkin time again. Where has the Summer gone?!
    The bf is a worrywart when it comes to the weather. He's been on constant high alert since the Isaac left the Florida coast.
    LOL I even told him I wanted to take the 8 hr road trip to New Orleans just so I can truly experience my first hurricane. No go, he won't let me. He truly is such a wet blanket. Won't let me have any fun sigh.....
    But they are calling for 8-12 inches of rain even up here , basicly from the rings of the hurricane and winds to 35 mph. which isn't bad but I'd still like to see the real thing. I love storms.
    At least we know that the Mighty Mississippi won't flood this time. I saw that in the Greenville, MS area, the river had gotten so low from the draught that they had to stop the barge traffic because one got really stuck. The others were only carrying 3/4 loads which wasn't cost effective at all. Foods are gonna skyrocket this fall. Be prepared. It's not gonna be pretty.

    Nancy, Sounds very yummy! I would probably broil or grill some tomatoes and sprinkle a bit of Parmesan cheese, black pepper and garlic powder. Also, I like to stuff them with a low-cal tuna salad with green onions, celery and a tbs. of thawed frozen peas.

    Looks like you got all us tomato-lovers out!

    You just keep up the good work. Nice to hear from you, too.

    Happy Wednesday ALL!

    Tomato, I like to nuke a sweet potato and put salsa on it and a tsp. of plain Greek yogurt. I eat the potato skin, too. Add a bit of green onion on top.

    Debbie, the thing I like about those grape tomatoes, is they are so convenient and seem to go with everything. Like a side that goes with a sandwich or a veggie snack or like you did put it in your squash dish. Some of the other varieties of tomatoes are too liquidy. Whoever created the grape tomatoes....THANKS!!!

    totallywiggedout replied to jean4u's response:
    Barb, funny you should mention "liquidy" tomatoes. I just read an article in a foody magizine that was about the new tomatoes that are being developed that are dry instead of juicy. The ones shown looked like romas and some smaller round garden types. I can't remember names but they will be the ones to get/grow for meatier,thicker sauces and drier salads.
