Homegrown Tomatoes

Ain’t nothin’ in the world that I like better
Than bacon & lettuce & homegrown tomatoes
Up in the mornin’ out in the garden

Get you a ripe one don’t get a hard one
Plant `em in the spring eat `em in the summer
All winter with out `em’s a culinary bummer
I forget all about the sweatin’ & diggin’
Everytime I go out & pick me a big one

Homegrown tomatoes homegrown tomatoes
What’d life be without homegrown tomatoes
Only two things that money can’t buy
That’s true love & homegrown tomatoes

You can go out to eat & that’s for sure
But it’s nothin’ a homegrown tomato won’t cure
Put `em in a salad, put `em in a stew
You can make your very own tomato juice
Eat `em with egss, eat `em with gravy
Eat `em with beans, pinto or navy
Put `em on the site put `em in the middle
Put a homegrown tomato on a hotcake griddle

If I’s to change this life I lead
I’d be Johnny Tomato Seed
`Cause I know what this country needs
Homegrown tomatoes in every yard you see
When I die don’t bury me
In a box in a cemetary
Out in the garden would be much better
I could be pushin’ up homegrown tomatoes

 

Nice song. Perfect for summer harvesting of homegrown tomatoes.

Classic Blueberry Pie Using Freshly Picked Blueberries

I always have a special preference for blueberries. They look and taste delicious, plus Oprah lists it as an excellent superfood for summer! Oh summer, the heavenly things that you give us. :)

 

Freshly picked homegrown blueberries are the best for a blueberry pie. They’re delicious, refreshing, and guaranteed to not last more than a few days in the fridge — because everybody will take their own slice. So I have here a recipe for a classic blueberry pie with a lattice top. I really appreciate this one because you don’t have to cook the blueberries, just mix them with the other ingredients and bake.

Voila! Yummy blueberry pie.

No-Bake Cookies n’ Cream Cheesecake

 

Can you believe, this is my third rewrite? Every time I keep deleting the whole post and starting all over again.

I made this cookies ‘n cream cheesecake for my then-fiance. Just to give you a bit of a background, very recently we decided to remain “good friends,” as for the past months the relationship hadn’t been really what you’d call “healthy.”  But I’m keeping my fingers crossed because I know that we still love each other, though he say’s right now he’s happy to have time on his own to review.

Cookies n' cream cheesecake with a Graham base

So umm… the first time I made this, I went with the original recipe and turned against my common sense, ended up using too much butter that made the Oreo base almost rock hard (though still yummy). I enjoyed scraping the base with my spoon, but apparently it’s not the same with the rest of the family — who kept asking teasing me why I made it that way. I’ve adjusted this one and the result is delightful.
