The garden giveth again! The first of the tomatoes are finally ripe. We chose the best, then rubbed them onto crunchy toast, adding a good drizzle of olive oil and some coarse sea salt. They were cooks’ treats that we munched while we sautéed chicken thighs and boiled plump green and yellow wax beans that were just picked this morning. Guess this cooler weather (77° and about to rain) has spurred on our appetites (which never seem to need much encouraging).
