Oh my, tomato pie and a day of canning


This is it, the last of the tomatoes, till next year.



 The ripe tomatoes I used in tomato pie. The recipe is old and simple. Basically a pie shell, tomatoes, 1 cup swiss cheese and 1/4 cup mayo. From there you can add other tasty bits to your liking. Tonight I added parmesan cheese, artichoke hearts, and some chopped sundried tomatoes as well. I have no idea what kind of tomatoes these are I planted over 30 cultivars of heirlooms last year, only to loose track of what was planted! I hate it when I do that, which is fairly often.

Yeah, its d*amn good! Especially when it served up with a rosa wine, a gift from my sister-in-law. I love the chickens on the label...does she know me, or what?


Green tomatoes made 14 pints of chow-chow. Can you what guess my friends and neighbors are getting this year?


Here is reason the tomatoes had to be brought in, the first frost....still no snow.

I'm sorry your roses got "frosty!" That tomato pie and glass of wine looks de-lish!
