This summer has been all about traveling. Whether we were moving, or jet-setting across the Atlantic, it seems like we are always on the go. And we still have a few more weeks to go until we are home. But Harper and I are having a blast and enjoying each and every minute of it (minus missing Daddy…that part really sucks).
After coming home from Branson last week, we decided to hop up to Santa Barbara to visit some of our close friends. Santa Barbara is a special place for us. It is where we lived for the last 3 years before Freddie took his new job up north. It is where we found out we were pregnant and where Harper was born. And most importantly, it is where we have created lifelong friendships with some very special folks. We are so grateful for the memories that we have in this beautiful town, and it feels good to be “home”, even for just a little while.
Here is a glimpse at what we have been up to in our favorite coastal city…
We are blessed to be able to visit such wonderful people in such a beautiful place.
But this post isn’t a paid advertisement for Santa Barbara (although it should be…), it’s about the goodness of veggies. And although I still don’t have a box (but I got one coming next week), there’s more than enough produce at the party to go around.
Last week we had a total of 11 link ups. And not only were there Fried Green Tomatoes and Buffalo Chicken Pizza, but there was homemade pie, and a collection of blueberry treats! Man, are we spoiled :) Thanks for sharing and linking up! You continue to amaze me with your delicious and nutritious dishes.
As for me, I have been eating my weight in homegrown tomatoes, which is ironic considering I used to not be the biggest fan. But after almost 3 years of CSA membership, and tons of great recipes linked to the party, I have collected enough scrumptious ideas to change my mind (although I still won’t snack on them for fun…have to draw the line somewhere…).
So in honor of my graduation to an “almost tomato lover”, here are my favorite recipes that utilize the abundance of CSA tomatoes this season…
Your turn: What are some of your favorite ways to incorporate your CSA tomatoes into simple and delicious meals? Looking forward to drooling over your ideas.
