Tomato Overload

While looking in the refrigerator for dinner ideas after work yesterday, I saw that we had about 10 tomatoes the size of my head that weren’t going to last much longer.  I wish I could brag and say that I grew these giant tomatoes, but the tomatoes coming out of our garden are smaller than a baseball.  The head-size tomatoes are courtesy of my grandpa’s garden – God bless him.

Dan and I quickly decided to make our two favorite tomato standbys – salsa and BLTs.

Dan makes the best salsa.


When I was a freshman in college, living about 2 hours away from home, Dan would come visit me on the weekends and always bring a huge container of homemade salsa.  My girlfriends and I would sit in our dorm room and happily munch away.  I didn’t think much of it then, but realize now that is something really sweet for a 19 year old boy to do.  I wish I could go tell my 19 year old self how lucky I was. 


Looks like we will be putting salsa on everything for the next two weeks. 

While Dan made the salsa I fried up the bacon and we enjoyed our sandwiches while watching last night’s episode of The Newsroom. 


Beautiful.  With every episode I watch, I love that show more and more.  I literally get goose bumps and it makes me want to be a reporter. 

Dessert was the worst kind of impulse buy.  This is what happens when you don’t feed your baby before you go to the grocery store. 


Other Munchies

Breakfast – banana, coconut, butterscotch oatmeal. 


Lunch: tuna sandwich and chips


Snacks: apple, orange, baby carrots


Three miles on the treadmill while reading Insurgent – the follow up to Divergent.  The story is getting pretty good.  I am sad I have to wait for the third book to come out.

Thought for the day


  1. Yummy BLT's waiting for our tomatoes to be ready. It's going to be a few weeks...
    And I want to try that icecream flavor, never heard of it, what's in it?

    1. The ice cream was good, but not my favorite. Blue Bell makes the best cookies and cream. The Christmas in July has 3 types of cookies (chocolate chip, snickerdoodle, and sugar), green and red sprinkles, and swirls of icing. Yep. I can't believe I just wrote that on a WW blog.

  2. That is A LOT of salsa! I just started eating tomatoes a couple of years ago. I wouldn't touch them when I was younger. :)

    1. It is almost half way gone - Dan likes his salsa! I have a friend who is literally scared of tomatoes. Her sister used to chase her with them when she was younger. :)
