Bounty of Tomatoes

This year was an especially bountiful year for our porch and raised bed tomatoes, so a No Fret salad side dish evolved from the three varieties.

1 large nyagous mahogany tomato

1 pear tomato

1 large handful of wild cherry tomatoes

organic extra virgin olive oil

½ lime, freshly squeezed

1 tablespoon of fresh parsley, finely diced

garlic, to taste

Himalayan pink salt, to taste

Black pepper, freshly ground, to taste

1 avocado

As I wanted the tomatoes to stand out on their own, I cut each differently. The mahogany tomato was cut into chunks, pear tomato was sliced, and cherry tomatoes were cut in half. Drizzle some olive oil over tomatoes, add spices, parsley, and stir. Next drizzle lime juice over tomatoes, stir and set aside. About 15 minutes before serving, chop avocado into chunks about same size as chocolate tomato and stir into tomato mixture. Let sit a few minutes at room temperature so flavors are all blended together.

No Fret Cooking at York Public Library

At the end of August, just as summer begins to transition into late summer, No Fret Cooking was invited to do an event at the beautiful library in York, ME. Immediately upon walking into the library we were greeted by welcoming staff and a wonderful volunteer who helped us set up the projector, screen, and microphone so I could present a PowerPoint slide presentation. And though it was a lovely warm summer evening which beckoned to people to be outside, we had a nice audience of locals who were intersested in health and healthy eating. After the presentation attendees were delighted and entertained by the beautiful music of Steve Carter! Whether you are on vacation or live in York, the York Library is a great place to visit with lots of events and a great children’s room to entertain children of all ages.
