I previously wrote about how Nick, a faithful reader of my blog, had requested me to use my culinary imagination and see what I could dream up using green tomatoes. It sounded like fun, but alas, my garden simply didn't produce much in the way of tomatoes this year. I had a few small pebble size green ones, but not enough to make any kind of dish.
Then Shawnae, another faithful reader of my blog, showed up at school with a bag of green tomatoes for me from her garden. (Her three adorable children go to the school where I teach.) It's great to have friends.
I'm already imagining something like a salad with grilled zucchini and grilled green tomatoes tossed with fresh mozzarella and basil vinaigrette for dinner. Stay tuned to see what develops from this thoughtful gift.
