Some Assembly Required



Look! An actual blightless tomato! And I ate it. And it was good. (The avocado, feta, and olive oil helped. A LOT.) It wasn't a local or heirloom variety, in fact, I think it was a hydroponic tomato probably sprayed with fungicide, so I'm guessing immune to the blight. (I should eat locally. I know. I try!) But look how red! Look how pretty! And it even tasted a bit like a tomato. Sort of.

Do you really need lettuce to have a salad? I think not. So here's mine, assembled with the only salad-like ingredients I had: one tomato, half an avocado, feta, extra virgin olive oil, salt, and freshly ground black pepper.
I had to take a break from baking eventually.

Peeps in NJ keep all the good tomatoes for themselves.
