Feature Garden Photo

Should you ever hear me bragging, it is generally about our family, our children, my husband... but in this instance I thought it was a fun thing and that you might enjoy seeing it.

The National Association of Realtors contacted me and asked if they could feature one of my photos from our garden on their site.

Quesadilla and Our First Tomatoes

We came in from the morning garden as the temperature was fast approaching 80 °F, plus, my tummy was having a conversation of sorts.

I opened the fridge and what did I see but fresh, fresh, fresh: from the garden an assortment of fresh vegetables_ onions, peppers, asparagus, broccoli..., fresh eggs from our chicks, whole wheat tortillas, and on the counter lay our first fresh tomatoes.

Saute the chopped vegetables in a little extra virgin olive oil; add the slightly beaten eggs, salt and pepper to taste, combine and cook until done. Transfer the mixture to a tortilla, sprinkle with your favorite shredded cheese, top with a second tortilla, and carefully move it back to the skillet to brown, one side and then the other.

Carefully slide the quesadilla to a plate, gently lift the top tortilla shell and insert the sliced tomatoes. Score and serve with a side of homemade green tomato salsa. Simple and fresh is good.
