Weekly Photo Challenge-“Summer”

I had to think about this one for a minute.  Summer to me means hot, living in air conditioning and getting my butt burned on a hot leather car seat.  I’m not much of an outdoors type person, nor do I like to camp, or swim.  So, what can I say about summer?  I looked no further than my back door and saw my glorious tomato plant growing and shouted “That’s it!”.  Summer is fresh tomatoes to me.

I love tomatoes, but mostly they taste like plastic for about 8 months out of the year.  But during the summer, the fresh tomatoes are juicy and well, just tomato tasting.  I have great plans for my single Roma tomato plant;  salsa, tomato sauce and caprese salad.  To accompany my plant, I am also growing cilantro for the salsa and basil and oregano for the sauce.  Fresh herbs and fresh tomatoes are the nectar of the gods as far as I’m concerned.

I just need to keep those pesky squirrels away from the plant.  Last year, Chip and Dale (my Disney tie-in for today’s blog)  kept making off with my nearly ripened tomatoes.

What is your favorite summer food?
