I had invited my mother, who doesn't turn down a visit to a farm stand well, ever, and fellow lover of all things tomato, to accompany me out there. We had a complete ball! The farm was buzzing with end of summer excitement and full bellies from all of the fantastic samples! Really a great celebration of the fantastic fruit.
My mom's dog Ziggy was very sad that he did not get invited to the Tomato Festival as well...I hope he gets over it!
Over all it has been a great eating day for me, starting off with the big breakfast for John this morning that I made of scrambled eggs, the sugar donut muffins that he loves so much, and I tried my hand at making more sausage made from turkey ( yum)! The best part is the John agreed that the little patties I made do, in fact, taste just like real sausage just leaner. YAY!
Tonight, there is some Chinese food in my future.
In case you are wondering, Wilson Farms will be hosting their festival again tomorrow, 11 am to 4 pm. www.wilsonfarms.com
