What am I Eating?

Friends of mine texted me the other day about their new favorite yogurt, Green Mountain Creamery-not being a huge yogurt fan I was apprehensive but decided to give it a try. They did not have the suggested coffee flavor but I have tried the plain with honey and granola as well as the strawberry….highly recommended for those who love greek yogurt!

From the Vine…Tomato Varieties

So many sizes, colors, and shapes to choose from here a few you might have never heard of…

  • Kumato: brownish-red and medium in size these tomatoes are sweet yet tart and used best when sliced
  • Yellow Pear: Bite-sized heirlooms with a mild flavor and pear shape
  • Brandy Wine: Large beefsteak tomato–pinkish red in color with a meaty interior and sweet flavor
  • San Marzano: Distinguished by their long shape and meaty texture-because they can be easily peeling they are often sued for tomato sauce

Next time you are in the supermarket or your favorite farmers markets pick out a different type of tomato to try!
