I went out to check on our tomatoes after neglecting them for a few days, and found we have baby tomatoes! Wheeee! It seems my first tomato experiment is coming along! In that vein, here’s today’s book review: How to store your garden produce, by Piers Warren. Great resource!
Totally unrelated, but read this post over at Stainless Steel Droppings about an art scholarship set up in memory of a young artist who passed away, and see if you can donate a dollar or two. If not, at least go and look at the amazing artwork and read about this young lady, and/or pass along the link on your own blog.
Since I don’t have any review cookbooks in hand at the moment (not that I need any more books to occupy my time!), we’re cooking from older cookbooks that we never got around to reviewing, and planning to review those. The lentil & hot dog soup from The Bean Bible was absolutely amazing, particularly made with a package of uncured, all-natural hot dogs that have SO much flavor! Next will be a recipe of lentil cakes with a date & tamarind chutney, and, from a different cookbook, a crustless cheesecake (yum!).
Thank you so much for the mention, I really appreciate it.
On a post-related note, I love it when baby tomatoes start arriving in the summer. We make a homemade salsa that is one of the few food items that I really long for in the summer. We made our first batch the other day and it was well worth the wait!
I finally noticed some baby green ones today too! Yeah! I was getting nervous. I also saw an inch long zucchini.
The Bean Bible, huh? Sounds interesting.
Carl: Oooh, sounds wonderful! I adore homemade salsa. Of course, that’s largely because I hate onions and I can leave the onions out of my own recipes. 😉
Tara: For some reason our plants seem kinda stunted and slow this year in producing. We finally have a bloom on one of our two zucchini plants. The Bean Bible is working out wonderfully—one more recipe and it’ll be time to review it!
