i like tomatoes to taste like tomatoes. wintertime tomatoes are always risky. will they taste like summer? no. will they taste like cardboard? i sure hope not. these at least smell like tomatoes. they were the best i could find, so they’ll really just have to do. they’ll be making their way into tomato, mozzarella and basil paninis.
in addition to these little beauties, i have six pounds of plum tomatoes that tomorrow will magically transform into a lovely pappa pomodoro. we’ll be celebrating nugget’s birthday and i have so much to do. at least i’ve managed to bake the cupcakes and make the “baby party mix,” which nugget declared most acceptable.
