Crazy about Heirloom Tomatoes

This past weekend, I went to the farmer’s market and bought a variety of heirloom tomatoes.

I love the diversity in the shape, color, size, texture, and taste of these heirlooms. Not only are they naturally eye-catching and almost impossible to resist, but they are so juicy and tasty.

These are not your basic, perfectly shaped store-bought red tomatoes.

I received so many great suggestions when I asked, “what should I make with these heirloom tomatoes?” on my Insta stories.

Here are some of the responses that I received:

  • Make a delicious salad!
  • Whip up an omelette
  • Slice them, add salt, pepper, and balsamic glaze with fresh mozzarella and basil πŸ˜‹

After my initial post, I also received a couple of thoughtful texts from family friends with links to recipes and suggestions, including a link to Tomato Madness: 101 Tomato Recipes.

While inspiring, I stuck to the basics. I made a caprese salad with basil, extra virgin olive oil from June’s Eattiamo box, balsamic, and added spinach for extra greens.

Just so you know, I’d like to add a knife set and cutting board to our registry, so if anyone’s still reading, please provide us with suggestions. πŸ˜‰

Love always,
