Bountiful

Late summer in California = lots of yummy things to eat!

1. Dan planted four blueberry bushes in the spring, and they are finally ripening...just a few berries, but oh-so-delicious with yogurt and peaches.

2. Pretty striped heirloom tomatoes from our CSA Terra Firma Farms and garden-variety red tomatoes from my mother's garden...

One of my favorite summer foods is tomatoes marinated with basil, garlic and olive oil, piled on top of grilled bread...so tasty!

Bruschetta
Mmm...tomato-y

3. Green figs from Terra Firma Farms and little red plums from a neighborhood tree...

They are the key ingredients for another favorite summer treat, fig and plum cake.
