the most wonderful time of the year

heirloom tomatoes from mom's garden

august is my christmas. not just because my birthday falls in august (ahem…), but because i wait patiently not-so-patiently all year for these few magical weeks in august when they finally arrive.

the tomatoes are here.

expect to see a lot of them in the following posts and recipes, in all their savoury, sweet, acidic, juicy, fleshy, luscious glory.
