tomatoes & madeleine

Wednesday, August 17, 2011

today i will be in the kitchen.
making a tomato tart,
probably with a little helper or two.
and listening to her.

then, if  i am not too discouraged, i am going to attempt homemade apple turn-overs.
we'll see how the tart goes first though.
don't you just love august and her homegrown tomatoes?
and having your own pot of basil growing right outside your front door?

yep, i love august.
i do, i do.
tomorrow is my birthday so i am thinking of treating myself to a little solo shopping trip today.
hope you all are having a good week!
