you say tomato

I am suffering from a serious lack of blog fodder today, so I guess I will just show you these tomatoes:
We belong to a CSA so we get fresh, organic veggies each week. Today I marinated some tomatoes with locally produced olive oil, balsamic vinegar, and basil. Later I threw in some beets that I roasted yesterday (wrapped them in foil and grilled them on the bbq for an hour). That, along with a baguette and brie, was dinner (though I have to confess that after dinner I nearly went to Jack in the Box for curly fries and those chocolate malts with chocolate chunks in them, but I didn’t have any cash, and I don’t know if fast food joints take credit cards?).
Thanks for your interest in the candy swap (and thanks, too, to those of you who signed on to help me get a free iPod!!). I have a Yahoo group set up already, but I haven’t done anything with it yet. I don’t want to step on the toes of the Candyalong, so I thought I’d wait until October or so (why October? I don’t really know, but it IS the ultimate candy month, and I just love Halloween so much it makes me crazy, and I just want to touch all the bags of Halloween candy and roll around in them). I’ll keep you posted. In the meantime, keep your candy eyes peeled.

    Yummy-looking & sounding. Those colors are great.

    I’m all for your candyswap! I can’t wait!
    I think a lot of fast food places are excepting credit cards now, but I don’t know about Jack in the Box. We don’t have those here. I know what you mean though about having a yummy, good-for-you, light meal and then craving something horrible and greasy afterwards. At that point I usually get out the cookie dough and just have cookie dough for desert. 😉

    Hey, I got a book from the library called “Candy and Me: A Girl’s Tale of Life, Love and Sugar” and thought of you and Jenny (ljc) since you both love candy so much. I confess I also love candy and keep a vintage “Candyland” game tin full of treats at my desk. I get lots of visitors!!
    Here is the link to the book:

    Dinner sounds wonderful, and if it were me I would have ended up at Jack in the Box just to top it off. I stumbled onto your blog yesterday while looking to see how people liked their bags of Malden Mills remnants, and I’ve been having such a good time reading that I haven’t managed to get another thing done since. I have three grandchildren in the “oven” and so am working on knitting booties and appliqueing quilts and other fun things. Love your tote bag class. The babies will now also need tote bags, I’m sure. The directions were wonderful.

    Oooooh!!! I am constantly drooling over the dee-liss-ee-us candy (and other food) you constantly show on your blog!! I am definitely down for a candy swap!
    I eagerly await October!!!

    Sadly, here in Mass, Wendy’s accepts credit cards. Is our society so in debt that we can’t even afford the 99 cent menu anymore? Yikes

    What a great-looking meal! I’m sure it was delicious.

    This time of year, I eat tomatoes breakfast, lunch and dinner. Your tomato dish looks great.
    My favorite odd, hard-to-find candy is Toffifay. Are you familiar with it?

    Jack in the Box takes debit and credit cards now. So does KFC. Some McDonald’s take debit cards too. Scary that I know this.

    I love the candy swap idea! I’ll be looking out for the start of it!! 🙂
