It seems that every time we step out into the garden, we come back with a little handful of tomatoes. The garden, which seemed a few weeks to be on its way out, is suddenly bursting with tomatoes and peppers. There isn't much else happening back there, but we don't mind. These late summer tomatoes are keeping us plenty happy.
The tomatoes are sitting on our counter in little dishes. There are quite a few them at this point, even though we keep popping them like candy. With a nip in the air, it may be time to roast them and toss them with a simple pasta. If not, there are always heirloom salads and pairing them with meats.
This weekend, two of our closest friends are getting married. Clay is a groomsman and Zach is singing (did you know he sings?). It has us thinking about our wedding, which was just over two years ago. (Time flies!) We celebrated our anniversary earlier this week. We kept it simple for our "cotton" anniversary and made dinner at home. Unromantically, the entire meal was built around the theme of "things that are about to go bad." But we had a nice bottle of wine and enjoyed a night in, and it made us very happy.
Next week we're going to announce a fun project for you to do with us in October. We're excited about the idea, and we hope you will be, too. It's going to require you to cook something -- we know you're going to hate that.
Have a great weekend. Buy some apples. If it gets chilly where you are, haul out a sweater. We'll see you on Monday.
