Each week, I am convinced that I've harvested as much of the garden as I possibly can, but I've been surprised. This week I picked more tomatoes & have been making Greek salad every night, to use up tomatoes & basil. Tonight I made a Simple Bolognese recipe to use up more tomatoes & basil, & it was fabulous. Because I was using fresh tomatoes, I made a few modifications - I added tomato paste, & wine, & used 1.5 lbs of fresh tomatoes. I cooked it a bit longer than the original recipe called for, in order to get the right texture, but it was wonderful.
I still have quite a few tomatoes that I'm hoping will ripen, & tons of jalapenos & peppers. I'm thinking of making salsa this week.
If I am feeling adventurous, I might try this green tomato cake. :-)
Here's a picture of the basil I picked today. This stuff is taking over my garden, so I should make more pesto this weekend.
