Regarding the title of this post, let me start with the truth.
Our summer windowsill.
The truth is that no matter what you've heard about New Jersey, we do have the best tomatoes. We planted three plants in the spring and we have just started picking them. Actually Jake and Alex like to put a piece of wheat (ornamental grass) between their teeth and pretend they are farmers harvesting their crops. My little farmers. I have made fried tomatoes with gravy a few times....yum. You just slice the tomatoes thick, dip them in egg and dredge with seasoned flour. Fry them in olive oil and that's it! You can make the gravy by making a rue with a little bit of butter and some of the seasoned flour. Add a bit of milk and cut up the tomato tops and ends into small pieces and pop them in there too. Add salt and pepper to taste and enjoy!
This is hands down my favorite summer tomato recipe.
We visited New Jersey's own Storybook Land on Friday. I LOVE this place and will be soooo disappointed when the boy's no longer want to go. I love all of the creepy cute fairy tale characters and buildings. Here are a few of my favorites.
