1. Oven Roasted Tomatoes -- we bought a 30-pound box of Okanagan tomatoes, and although we loved eating them fresh, we were barely making a dent, and the fruit files were gathering with their knives and forks. So we followed this simple David Lebovitz recipe and roasted them up with garlic, salt and pepper, a little olive oil, and then we varied the herbs a bit from pan to pan.
Plopped the results in some freezer containers -- they make an almost complete pasta sauce possible in minutes -- Paul adds eggplant and simmering for some wonderfully satisfying results.
Tomahawks. Adorably, they come with their own little dust bag, not shown here. I'll try to get a pic of Harriet wearing them soon.
4. Rose hips in the fall. . . . that is all I need to say about this, right?
5. I popped into a little consignment store in our tiny local downtown, and I was delighted to find this muted gold, silk-cotton-blend skirt from Club Monaco. Even more delighted to find that one of the items I'd recently consigned had sold for almost enough to pay for the new-to-me skirt. Even more delighted again to find that the skirt has pockets cunningly slid into its side seams. Love. (You're right, I probably should have ironed the skirt before I took this picture, but if I'd waited until that happened, this would be Five Things SomeOtherDayWithNoAlliteration. So this photo will have to do . . . )
Your turn now: why don't you tell me one or two or all the way up to five things you've been liking lately. Aaaaannnndd. . . . . go!
