GrowDammit Tomatoes are Poppin’

We are starting to harvest some cherry and pear.  What have we been doing with them?

getting ready to grill some veggies

Grilling them for fajitas.

And putting them in a BLT salad.

And in the case of the lonely yellow zebra tomato, slicing it up and stuffing it in our pieholes.

The yellow zebra was interesting, sweet with just a hint of tart.  It would make a nice fried tomato – not as tangy as a plain green one.

Stay tuned for more heirloom news from GrowDammit Central.

It’s too damn hot to cook, so what do we do?

Cook.

But, we did it very minimalistic.  We are having our bazillionth heat wave of this Summer, so I thought a nice light, cold picnic type supper would be perfect.  Also ever since watching the Food Network’s Special The Big Waste, we try to empty the fridge of leftovers when they start to pile up before we have to throw stuff away.  Rufus Dragon likes it, as he often gets a little something extra in his food bowl at the end of the day.

If you tuned in yesterday, you know we harvested a shitton of tomatoes and used some of them to make Shrimp Creole.  We have even more tomatoes ripening every second, and we had a few shrimp that we didn’t use b/c it was more than we could eat.  We also had some flank steak leftover from Friday night’s meal, and some hard boiled eggs that really needed some attention.

Without further ado, we present our Leftover Picnic…

Cherry Tomatoes Stuffed w/ Shrimp Salad, GrowDammit Deviled Eggs (featured last in our Steakhouse Cobb Salad) and a Flank Steak Sandwich w/ caramelized onions, ancho-tomato jam and dijon mustard on a mini-croissant.

Of course, we had to eat it indoors because a round of severe thunderstorms rolled through.  It’s been a really crappy Summer weather wise up here in Yankee land.
