This weekend, on our usual quest for “one pain au chocolat, one almond croissant, please,” I am surprised to see so many tomatoes make an appearance at the farmers market. Tomatoes are the bounty of our warmest summer months, the fruits of July and August. Here in October, wherein the winter squashes, pears and sweet potatoes are starting to make an appearance, the tomatoes are still standing strong.
Mr Patton claims to dislike tomatoes. However, he makes a most excellent bruschetta with chopped heirlooms, a little minced garlic, basil, and a healthy splash each of lemon juice and our favorite olive oil by Frankie’s 457. Don’t forget the salt.
I make it sometimes, too, but for some terrible reason I always forget to include the basil. This is a kind of treason to the true spirit of bruschetta. An unintentional treason, but still.
Now I am hungry for bruschetta.
