The Last Tomato Of The Season

Today, we ate the last tomato of the season from our vine.  It was just as good as the first tomato of the season.

I made BLT's for lunch with the tomato.


I won't have another BLT until next summer.


By the way.  The bread for the sandwich was homemade by me.  If you want to learn how to make the tastiest, easiest, no knead, one pot bread ever, check out my From Harvest To Table blog.

This is not the bread made in a cast enamel pot.  This is 4 simple ingredients stirred into a non-stick pot.  Then the pot is put in the refrigerator over night, popped into the oven the next morning, baked, popped out of the pot and cooled.  Simple.  Easy. One pot. No knead.

Hi Penny! Oh, yummy! There is noting like a fresh tomato off the vine! I love tomato sandwiches and you made the bread? I'll have to check it out and make some too.
Hope all is going well with your new house.
Be a sweetie,
Shelia ;)

Wow! That bread recipe sounds easy. Even I may be able to make that! Ha! Do you remember when everyone was using those bread machines to make homemade bread? I haven't even seen those anymore. Will have to go check out your food blog then. All of our tomatoes are gone now too. My husband made burgers on the grill last night and we had to go BUY a tomato! He said it felt strange to do that since earlier this summer we had so many we were giving them away!

Oh this looks so yummy. We have a few more BLT days as I've been saving a good one. We just had BLTs last week. That bread looks great.

(I gave my sister a bag of green tomatoes and I think I may have given her a lot of frost touched ones as the ones sitting on my counter have gone soft and brown. My poor sister!)

Hi Penny,
Oh my goodness how yummy your home-made sandwich looks and that bread looks divine. I am going over to your From Harvest to Table blog and take a look at the recipe. I have not had good luck baking bread so maybe your recipe will help me look like I can bake bread :) I just might surprise Gary.
Have a sweet day.Elizabeth

We're having BLTs with our last tomato tonight -- the end of summer!! Sally

Do you know that with all the tomatoes from our garden I have yet to make a BLT?! What was I thinking? It's on the menu for tonight. I have tomorrow off so I can make the bread too! Thanks for the inspiration:>)

Pat @ Mille Fiori Favoriti said...

I love Jaques Pepin! I will have to try making this bread very soon.

Melanie said...

I love BLT sandwiches, but you're right ~ you've gotta have fresh tomatoes. Just not the same with the waxy supermarket ones. I've heard about the one pot bread, but have never tried it. Will have to do so!

Beverly said...

I love Jacques Pepin, too. And, you have inspired me.

Catherine Holman said...

I'm definitely trying your recipe!

How we'll miss the 'real' tomatoes from local farms and gardens!

I copied the new bread recipe - will try it one day.

I'm behind with comments dear - sorry - but I'm happy about the lovely house etc. and will follow with much interest. Know that Bob and I think of you both often.

Love - Mary

Fresh tomatoes already gone here, and I miss them. There is nothing better than a real, vine-ripened tomato! Bread looks yummy, too.

The last one - that's always so sad. I've been babying mine along. I bought some heavier row covers to use this year since it's supposed to be a colder than average winter. I had to cut some of it to fit my beds so the end bits I've been using to cover my remaining tomato plants at night. It still fairly warm in the afternoons here 70-80's. So they've slowed but haven't stopped.
