more from my little jungle

who knew that 4 little tomato plants would produce so much fruit? i can't imagine how many more tomatoes i would have, if i had spaced them out properly and if the yellow tomato plants received more sunlight.

lately i've been harvesting tomatoes almost every other day. i've frozen a bunch and wanted to try drying them but partially thanks to reading no impact man, i can't get over the amount of energy that is required to oven dry them.

the bottom photo is the result of 1 hour of slicing, carmelizing and 2 hours of baking: heidi swanson's spiced tomato gratin.

i halved the recipe and it still was a lot of gratiny goodness for andre and i to devour over a week. sadly, i thought that by halfing the portion, i could bake for half the time but that was not so.

a small world

when i first moved to toronto, i was trying to get as much info about local printers as i possibly could.

for the longest time i held onto a flyer from pixel print.

then three summers ago i met the girl behind the flyers through my friend the hungarian girl.

for almost all of my printing needs now, i go to pixel print and now she's opened up a store front just 3 blocks away from me!

what's more she's taken over the good food box program, so i get to go to her gorgeous store at least once every two weeks.
