Tomatoes and a pretty Table

June 24, 2014 by 4 Comments

Happy  Summer –  what have you been up to?   I hope your time is blessed with lots of family fun and making happy memories.  This morning I sat down and cleared some pics off my iPhone, these are from my recent trip to DFW, this, that and the other. Hope you don’t mind me sharing?  Here we go… gardening takes up a little bit of time these days and I love checking on the progress of our plants on the Tower Garden and straw bales.


I get so excited when I see these yummy tomatoes almost ready to be picked. We’re also growing lots of lettuce, kale, cilantro, parsley,dill and basil on the towers.

Since the tomatoes are close to be ripe, I can’t wait to make a homemade pizza like this one!  Our daughter made it for us when we stayed at her house recently.  She used a pre-made pizza dough from Trader Joe’s and added some yummy toppings like pizza sauce, fresh tomatoes, chopped basil, mozzarella cheese and feta cheese. After popping it in the oven and baking for 15 minutes or so it was ready to eat!  Easy, peasy and so good!

And can I just tell you about my sweet granddaughter setting a beautiful table while I stayed at her house for a couple of days while Aimee was out of town.  Just like her momma, little B  is a gracious hostess and makes everyone feel welcome.  I love her pretty smile and the color pink!!

I think we served baked potatoes and salad….but the gorgeous table setting made it extra special!  She even made place cards for everyone – it’s all about the details, right?  Precious!

I’m still clearing more pics….saving some for another post!

Have a blessed day!

    I love the idea of a pizza with fresh herbs, tomatoes, and feta–I’d never thought to put feta on a pizza before, but now I have to try.

  4. Awww, I’m so happy you have tomatoes growing and even happier that I got to spend some time with you!
    Big Hugs,
