Sharing Tomatoes and a New Recipe

We only have two tomato vines



are coming out our ears.

They're so delicious ...  tastes better than candy,

but then  ...  we have so many, they're spoiling right before our eyes.

Because I'm a good Wifie, 

I found 

a new recipe

that called for LOTS of tomatoes.

This recipe is from:

Chickpea and Tomato Salad

  • 1 can chickpeas, drained and rinsed
  • About 1 pint grape tomatoes, halved
  • 25 large basil leaves, chopped
  • 3 cloves of garlic, minced
  • 1 tbsp red wine vinegar
  • 1 tbsp apple cider vinegar
  • 2 tsp olive oil
  • 1/2 tbsp honey (10g)
  • pinch of salt
Toss all ingredients together and chill for at least 20 minutes, allowing all the flavors to merge.

I'm not sure if I'll make it again, 

but it served us well 

for a few


and saved

these tomatoes

from the compost bin.

PS:  I knew you were wondering if we've shared tomatoes with our neighbors...Oh Yes!  

In fact, Buzz is pretty popular these days!


  1. Tomatoes are very good for us! I even love them sliced on toast. Cherry tomatoes are addictive!

  2. Don't you wish you could make those yummy tomatoes last for the upcoming months?! Your salad looks like a refreshing dinner. I could eat salads every night!

  3. This sounds wonderful, you see I love tomatoes and chickpeas! I hate to think of soon we'll be eating hot house tomatoes :-{. I still have a lot of basil left too and I really think I'll have this for lunch tomorrow! Thanks for sharing and pinned!

  4. Oh this looks so yummy. I love tomatoes and basil. Never tried the chickpeas with it. I'll have to try. So generous of Buzz to share with the neighbors. I was gonna let you know also I have a Fall Linky Party going on. I'd love you to link your Fall posts. Old or new. Archives are wonderful! Here's the linky. Hope to see you at the party!

  5. That is a delicious looking recipe, Geneva.
    Those cherry tom. really are like candy, you could eat them by the dozens.
    Adding the chick peas gives you that source of protein, excellent.
    The Lord bless you, Debbie
