They're Finally Here!

My tomatoes are finally here! Tonight, along with my favorite zucchini casserole, I sliced into our first garden tomato: a mortgage lifter heirloom variety.

The beautifully reddish-brown skin of the fruit was met & balanced perfectly by the sweet, tangy, juicy flesh hidden inside! In a word, my taste buds were screaming, 'heavenly'!! It was just that.

On its own, or with mozzarella, basil, homemade French bread, olive oil, & balsamic vinegar, this tomato was pretty much the highlight of our dinner (yes, even though it was national zucchini day, hence the casserole :-).

This is only the beginning...I'm excitedly overwrought at that prospect!
