Busy Saturday

Dorothy finished a birthday cake she was working on yesterday, so this morning I gathered as many tomatoes from the garden as possible.  She worked on two projects:  blackberry jelly and salsa.

Getting all the ingredients together to make the salsa.
Look at the pretty stuff.
After finishing a fresh batch of blackberry jelly the logical
thing to do is to make biscuits, and while they were in the
oven why not fry up some bacon and eggs? Hash browns
seemed to fit the plate too. The tomatoes, potatoes, and blackberries
are fresh from the garden. Soul satisfying is the only way I can
describe the pleasure of eating food from your own patch of ground.

That looks beautiful! I can't think of anything I'd love more than eating a meal like that from my own garden. Sadly, I didn't grow even one tomato plant this year--and I love homegrown tomatoes! I did just start a batch of seedlings from supermarket Roma tomatoes, which are my favorites for pico de gallo (uncooked salsa). That's one of the nice things about living in Southern California--tomato and pepper plants often survive the winter here. Some years we get a killing frost and some years we don't.
