Love MY LUNCH Thursday

It happened today.

I've been waiting and waiting and waiting.

We had such a wet spring that I didn't think today was ever going to get here.

I checked every single day, even when I had to put my galoshes on to do so.

It is not lost on me that this day won't come again for at least two weeks since the girls and I leave on our European trip tomorrow. (More about that when I'm officially done freaking the frak out.)

Meanwhile, shall I show you what took so long to get here? Are you sure?

Today was a banner day for the Cooper Garden. Not only did it produce THESE (our first of the season):

But also? Look what I had for lunch today!!!!


The girls and I have rediscovered our bread machine so that's fresh, homemade bread with mayonnaise slathered all the heck over it and the first tomato of the year from my very own, rockin'-this-world-and-the-next garden.

If I were any happier, I'd be twins.

AAAAAAHHHH I am jealous. Not only is it nigh impossible to grow tomatos here, but the ones we get in the grocery store are grainy and don;t taste like tomatos.

I just got drool on my keyboard.

Have a great trip! I didn't realize you were leaving so soon!

When you told about the trip a few weeks ago, it seemed like a long time until you were leaving and now? You're leaving!

It's gonna be awesome.

I am drooling. Literally, not figuratively. And am eager to hear more about the planned European adventure. That has me jealous, too.

Wow... my tomatoes aren't ripe yet but I DID pick and eat the first zucchin last night!

Miriam said...

Oh, wow! Yummy. And this brings me to:

Who's picking your tomatoes while you're gone?!

Nothing better than a mayo/fresh tomato sandwich...unless, of course, you feel like adding a chunk of mozarella to that...

I hope that was REAL mayo! Congrats on the veggies, & Bon Voyage!

My fantasy lunch: Fresh focaccia, olive oil, your tomatoes: I'd be in heaven. Have a smashing time on the continent!

Tomatoes already? You must have started them in March! Cucumbers, yeah, but tomatoes! I'm SO jealous. Of course, the deer eat ours, so I don't even try anymore. But I buy local when I can.

I hope you're growing basil to go with!
