When a kitty is really tired, anything will do for a bed and pillow.
I was kidding Cookie about perhaps having had a little ” ‘nip” and being, um, a little out of sorts. She sat up, washed her face and had a drink of water, but later she was sleeping there again. Must be tomatoes aren’t such a strange pillow after all.
. . . . . . .
Tomatoes probably make a nice pillow for a kitty! It may be halfway through the year, but you can still use the dozen recipes Cookie and I worked out through the years, most of them based on what we have grown in the garden over the years. The recipes are “simple”, meaning they are easy to make and are open to improvisation, just the way I like to cook. The recipes range from fruit crisp to a pasta dinner, and using vegan ingredients in place of dairy or eggs in just about any recipe will work as well. And you can still use the calendar as well, not to mention laugh at Cookie’s antics!
RECIPE: INDIVIDUAL TOMATO TARTS
My favorite way to eat a tomato fresh from the garden is just to eat it, like an apple, but a tomato tart can be a small meal on its own or a full meal with a salad on the side, and the leftovers don’t get soggy because there aren’t any.
Line a baking dish about the size of a cereal bowl with pie crust (refrigerator kind is fine for this), layer a slice of mozzarella cheese, 1/4-inch slices of tomato to cover, sprinkle with salt and a few basil leaves. Another slice of cheese, tomatoes, salt and basil, top with another slice of cheese. Bake at 3750 for 15 to 18 minutes until cheese is bubbly.
Here’s the two-page spread for June:
