Jen talks about the tastes of summer!

Here’s one thing you can do with your extra tomatoes: Throw the biggest food fight in the world!

Although it might be a good stress reliever (we’re in the thick of concert season and we sure are busy!), you won’t find Farm Aid staff wasting our precious tomatoes in a food fight!

Most of us here have been bringing in fresh-from-the-garden or farmers’ market tomatoes for lunch every day. While I prefer a tomato, mozzarella and basil sandwich, Cornelia slices up her heirlooms and eats them from a bowl with a fork. Carolyn tosses hers into a stir fry with zucchini, squash and peppers. Yesterday, we enjoyed a nice guacamole break with vine ripened tomatoes. No matter how you slice ’em, nothing beats a fresh tomato… except maybe a peach! And we have serving suggestions for those too! Tonight I’m grilling peaches and serving them with a dab of french vanilla ice cream for dessert. Man, summer tastes good!
