It’s clear I’ve started to age. I”m officially “late twenties”. And when I log onto Facebook, I don’t see posts about people humorously discovering photos from the night before that they will eventually regret being posted, or posts about how last night was crazy, and tonight’s going to be crazier. No. These days, the posts about big nights out are more of a lament of how our bodies are punishing us for the night before. People are getting engaged/married/pregnant left and right. And I’m learning things about motherhood that I sort of wish I didn’t know yet. Yikes. That being said, there’s some REALLY cute photos that get posted of babies and children. And right now, I’m LOVING the back to school photos and the darling outfits.
But does that mean summer is over already? It just started! So sad right now. But walking down the street today, my mom (yep! she’s in New York!) said she thinks summer goes straight through September! Joy!
And the farmer market agrees. Tomatoes are still in abundance. Look what I got at the farmers market – so many colors of tomatoes! Purple, orange, green, yellow, and mixed!
I may have mentioned before that the August cover of Bon Apetit was inspiring so I sliced up my tomatoes. And a cucumber. I ate the orange and purple tomatoes on their own. I couldn’t wait any longer.
And then I sliced a loaf of bread and toasted the slices. I drizzled a little olive oil on the toast, spread on some goats cheese (not too much!) and layered on the tomatoes and cucumber slices. I topped with salt and pepper to finish.
See!? Summer isn’t over yet!
