Tomatoes! And all the wonderful things one can do with them. Each year we call a week or two Bacon Festival. The required accompaniments are fresh Manghi’s white sliced bread and our fall lettuce, and of course, mayo!  Don’t forget baked tomato halves with Parmesan, olive oil and bread crumbs, and a finishing snippet of fresh basil. And time for last summer picnics. While you’re at it, this long over-due rain will give us mushrooms, so how about a “late chantrelles, caramelized onion and goat cheese  pizza?” Wait!!! This is supposed to be a short paragraph!
