Sunday shelf - august company

xxoo august company xxoo
I find myself in rather fine august company. The red juicy ripe heirloom tomatos beckon to be savoured and sliced for a tomato salad.
Tomatos sliced on a plate are a venerable summer time staple around here.
Do you eat a tomato like a fruit or a vegetable?

A sweet ear of corn on the cob is another fine specimen of august company.
What is keeping you company during this month of August?
Fresh tomato's and corn are such a treat.

Like you, I am a lover of summer's finest produce! In my mind, there is nothing better than a freshly sliced tomato with just a dash of salt and a bit of sea salt. Yum! Lovely paintings!

I love tomatoes. I have at least three different kinds in my garden. I usually just wash them and pop them right in my mouth after picking them to use in a meal. I love corn too. Happy Sunday.

I'm off to the farmer's market this morning for some fresh summer bounty.

I've never seen vegetables look so grand Patricia. Would you believe I don't like fresh tomatoes..crazy I know! Seeing your painting of the ear of corn though reminds me of home. There were large fields of corn planted each spring and harvested each late summer. Seeing the combines were always a mark that summer was coming to an end. Wishing you a lovely summers Sunday Patricia x

Those tomatoes look delish and the colors are so rich!

Good afternoon on this wonderful summer day --
wonderful paintings. I'm in agreement with Dumwith Tellher (a store I used to love) I just say no to raw tomatoes but love it when it becomes spaghetti sauce.
I enjoy corn with butter and salt.
Hope the soon-to-be-mom-of-college-
students is well.

Tomatoes are a summer staple here as well, only this year the squirrels are beating me to them. We enjoy tomatoes in gazpacho, on sandwiches, and with basil and mozzarella. The squirrels, they prefer them green.
