Summer Panzanella.

 

Is this thing on?

My blog has always been a place where I have something to report on, and, well… There’s nothing new to report.

Like everyone else’s summer, it’s been hot. There’s been travel. There’s been lots of outdoor cocktails. And there has been minimal cooking so to keep the apartment temperature at a low.

Thank God tomato season is at it’s peak.

And we all know how much His Lordship and I love tomatoes.

We put them in pasta.

We put them in sandwiches and tarts.

Regularly, we slice them up, season them with salt and pepper, and eat them by themselves. (Sometimes I put them on a baguette slice with cheese. Cause, duh.)

One of the easiest things to do (besides the aforementioned slice and season technique) is to serve them in a salad.

And because we’re training, we add carbs, by way of baguette.

Delicious baguette.

Delicious tomatoes.

Enjoy.
