What’s for Dinner?

It’s a good week when I’ve got enough tomatoes piled on my counter to serve as inspiration for two sammies-for-dinner nights! You just can’t go wrong with a good old fashioned BLT. Add in a caprese version, and it’s summer sandwich heaven. I’ve got fresh cucumbers and red onions, the staples for a Greek inspired meal. And sweet peppers, onions, and cilantro screaming Mexican. Plus, a first-of-the-summer watermelon from my CSA, plus lots of other fresh summer bounty…we’re set for salads o’ plenty, grill-fests, and summer pizza nights.
