Sauteed Cherry Tomatoes


I only planted one teensy weensy cherry tomato plant this
year but it has given us an abundance of fruit!
It's much taller than me and has branched out
until it looks like a huge shrub!
Alex loves to pop them in his mouth and eat them 
like grapes!  But to serve with meals, this has been
a favorite this summer....cut in half and sautee in some olive
 oil or bacon drippings.  Add salt and Italian seasoning and
 garlic.  They are wonderful as a side dish to brunch or dinner!  

Yum!

    1. He sure loves them! His brothers would rather die than eat a tomato. haha.
      Thankfully, we've had enough to eat and cook with. I wonder how many wild plants
      we'll have next year. I bet I won't have to plant any! :)

  6. I love tomatoes - big or small! Sauteed sounds good, I've never tried that.
    The pitcher arrived today. I love it! Bob and I enjoyed your Grandma Bruins note too. :)
    PS - in your post about it, you said it was made around 1850. Just wondering how you know that? I have no idea how to check these things out, but I like it regardless!

    1. So glad your pitcher got there alright! As far as the date, I can tell by the marking on the bottom...the company name and the crest and their dates of manufacturing. It's such a pretty piece...I love the shape...and I'm so glad it went to you!

  10. Want some next year too? Leave some on the plant when it dies back and the tomatoes left on the plant will be the seeds for next year and should come up on their own.

    1. I'm sure we've had a few drop to the ground so I'm expecting them to come up next year
      without any help!

  11. Sure looks like you got a good haul indeed
    That one really wanted to grow and take seed
    A good little meal mixture
    And a fun backyard fixture
