She's Always Runnin' from Something

Dude.

I am busy.

Biz-zay.

I don't how the hell this happened and I'm sure some of it has to with Aaron's massive three-week business trip but yo, I can barely catch my breathe.

And I'm sure quite a bit of it is the little things, like watering the damn garden. And? I swear our yard has the good juju for tomato plants. Every damn year we get volunteer red tomatoes, this year in the big dirt patch from the greenhouse tear down.


What the hell am I suppose to do with these damn tomatoes? Darwin is allergic and Griffin and I don't eat raw tomatoes.

Uh, yes. I am completely blaming my insane busy-ness on tomato plants. Or, at least, I am blaming my insanity on the damn tomato plants.

Okay, maybe the tomatoes are not completely at fault for being busy. But they're getting blamed for it today.

You don't eat raw tomatoes? Then you could cook them? I like them just cut into small chunks and sauteed with olive oil, garlic, basil, salt and pepper. Then I sop up the juices with some parmesan. Yummy. It's good on chicken or pasta. (if there is gluten-free pasta?) You guys are probably allergic to one of those things though. :)

If you need help getting rid of the tomatoes, give us a call. I tried to grow some in containers, but we have too freakin' much shade!

Keri said...

I think there's no other option than to make liters and liters of tomato sauce... that'll keep you busy!

I wish I lived nearby so I could come over and take those tomatoes off your hands! :)

OMG...SEND. THEM. TO. ME!!! They'd be OK in the mail right? It's almost worth chancing it, because I love tomatoes so much! My mom fondly remembers when I was little and whenever I would go missing, she only had to look out into the huge garden we had, where I sat eating the cherry tomatoes as fast as I could, the juice running free, burning and chapping my chin (I wonder if Vasaline would have helped that? tee-hee)

Can them. Can some salsa, or diced tomatoes, or...

wait a minute...

You don't eat raw tomatoes? Before you said that, I thought you had no imperfections.

But I'm the only person in the whole world who doesn't eat bell peppers, so I think we can still belong to the same swearing freak club.
