Aren't tomatoes beautiful? I bought these organic cherry tomatoes about a week ago at the regular grocery store. They were gorgeous, and I couldn't resist. Growing up, I was never really a huge fan of tomatoes. As I've married and begun my own family life, I've found a love and passion for food and cooking, and tomatoes have become one of my favorites.
The cherry tomatoes (that come in beautiful reds, oranges, yellows, and sometimes purples) are such a great pop of color and sweetness to any dish really. This week, we've enjoyed them in tacos (Wow, what a burst of flavor in comparison to the romas I've been using lately!), amongst lettuce in salads, and alongside cucumber for a fresh bite. Upon biting them, they give quite the squirt of seeds too! Cooper enjoyed biting into a few just to watch them shoot out a trail of green seeds!
Just the color of these tomatoes alone gets me so excited for this time of year. Summer ending and fall beginning! I am so looking forward to it. The (don't shoot me) rain and cool weather, the cozy clothes, the scarves, the pies, the traditions, the birthdays, the feeling in the air! I just love it. Favorite time of year....leading up to Christmas...my favorite time of year! He he he.
