No Sweat Tomatoes

It's So HOT out there. . .
(How HOT is it?)
That even the tomatoes are sweating. . .

Well, not quite .I'm sure they would be, though, if they could. At 103 degrees, I break out in a sweat just thinking about them hanging outside in the sun.  But they are ripe - red, sweet, juicy, delicious, and just begging to be eaten and enjoyed!

Chiiillll Family Fourth

Independence Day. Fourth of July.  A celebration of unity; of people coming together for a united cause; for the official inception of the United States of America with the adoption of the Declaration of Independence. A day of family and friends, barbecues and parties. An evening of loud-works and fire works.  Ooohs! Aaahs! Wows! Awesomes!

With an under-the-weather Daughter, near-couch bound sick Hubster, and ankle-sprained Son-o, our plans for 2012 were pared down to what we decided were the most important high points: Homemade ice cream.
