Green Beans and Roasted Tomatoes

Ah. Summer’s bounty.

I can’t keep up with all the wonderful things I want to make.

Fresh peaches are ripening on my counter.

Beets are waiting to be roasted in my refrigerator.

And all those tomatoes!

Herbs from the garden.

Fresh green beans.

As I write this tonight, I see on the news how the drought is affecting the summer crops and suddenly, I become more grateful for what’s on my table.

This is a simple recipe…the sweet and saltiness of oven roasted tomatoes.

Slow roasted in the oven laced with fresh thyme, rosemary, salt and pepper.

Topping the fresh sweetness of steamed green beans, garnished with feta cheese.

Ah, a mouthful of summer!

    No dish can translate summer better than this. I love the mix of colors, the crunch of the beans and the juicyness of tomatoes. This is making me inspired to start my own veggie garden.
