Here is one of my favorite ways to enjoy tomato season...
Skillet Tomatoes & Summer Squash
1 lb homegrown tomatoes, chopped
1 lb summer squash, chopped into 1/2 inch pieces
2 cloves garlic, chopped or put through a garlic press
1 small onion, coarsely chopped
1 tbs olive oil
I make this in my cast iron skillet, but you could use a frying pan if needed. Saute the onion in olive oil until soft, turn the heat up and cook the squash, stirring frequently until it browns a bit. Reduce heat to medium & add the garlic for a minute or so. Add the tomatoes and cook on medium heat until the tomatoes reduce and the squash is soft. I love to serve this with polenta or over cheese grits. You can also substitute okra or eggplant for the squash. Yum!
This Saturday, June 9th at 10:30am Debbie Keller will be taking her worms for a little field trip to the Monument Market to show us how easy it is to make amazing vermicompost ourselves! I hope you can join us for this free class.
