Denver: Root Down

Prepping for Amtrak food: Root Down in the Highlands neighborhood.
Amazing house Bloody Mary mix, Colorado lamb burger with Harissa.
Phone home - this place is amazing!!

Got tomatoes?

We planted three cherry tomato plants earlier in the season and being novices, we had no idea what that would yield.
We also had no idea that our compost in our abandoned raised beds would spawn six or seven cherry tomato plants.
Surprise, us! We now have what could be quantified as a shit-ton (a technical term, I hear) of these little delights.
Today I took five seconds to pop a few cups of them in the broiler. Five minutes later -- a tasty something to toss into pasta or, as I am doing now, topping a taco in place of salsa. One of my fave things to do with broiled tomatoes - blend with cold butter. Easy, delicious and did I mention it's easy and delicious? 

Hope you are enjoying tomatoes this summer!
