C'mon Tomato Season

I'm dreaming of tomato season.  Like many places in the US right now, it's cold and snowing...for the second day.  Trying to keep my spirits up!

I did do some cooking earlier today.  I haven't enjoyed cooking throughout most of my life, it's been a drudgery.  Lately, though, I've been into making these grand salads and using my Door to Door Organics produce.  This morning I made crispy kale chips with olive oil, vinegar and salt. They were really wonderful and I had to fight off hubby who also loved them, which is a surprise because he turns up his nose most times to anything new. I also baked an acorn squash which I plan on making into soup for dinner.  I'm amusing myself until I can leave the house.

I was feeling exactly the same way about tomatoes last night! And I hadn't seen your post 'til just this morning!
I love this Challenge as I get to find so many new artists all the time!
