It seems like quite a while since I shared any food photos and I can assure you it's not from the lack of eating- lots of that goes on here! 

The last few tomatoes are now red ripe and juicy from our humble plant in the garden and they have been possibly the best tomatoes I have ever tasted.  Next year I intent to increase my stock as I quite like the idea of a glut of them to make chutney and fresh tomato sauce to freeze for the snowy winter months. 

Simply sliced with a drizzle of extra virgin olive oil, salt, pepper and some basil from the garden.  The perfect nibble whilst cooking tea for the troops.

Roasted tomatoes ready to be made into pasta sauce with Italian sausage meatballs.

Just a few nibbles, taken with a gin and tonic in the last dregs of the summer sunshine.  Tomato and basil salad, marinated mushrooms and olives and green beans (from the garden) with a balsamic reduction.
