The monsoons of the last few days finally turned to sunshine yesterday -- temps in the mid 80s, but breezy with low humidity. In other words, my favorite weather. There may be some lizard DNA in my body. Needless to say, we'll be firing up the grill; we've got a taco party photo shoot planned and a good bit of the food is going on the grill. I can't wait.
Here in New Orleans, the beloved, iconic Creole tomato will be celebrated at the Creole Tomato Festival taking place at the French Market, but be forewarned -- Saturday is also World Naked Bike Ride Day, and of course there's an event in New Orleans. It'll wend its way throught the French Quarter sometime after 4:00 and the motto is "Go as Bare as you Dare" so look the other way if you're offended!
On the subject of Creole tomatoes, I'm averaging about 1 a day. A Creole tomato sandwich is my breakfast of choice, and a platter of sliced tomatoes and cucumbers rounds out most dinners; there's nothing like them. If you don't have access to them in your local market, you might want to prevail upon a friend to ship you a care package of them. They'll ripen on the window sill!
Congratulations to Brian Clark of The Oyster Troff in Eustis, FL; he took home the top prize in the P&J Oyster Shucking competition last weekend, tying the competition's record of 20 oysters shucked in 2 minutes. That's some serious hustling.
Enjoy this week's recipes, share them with family and friends, and, as always, let me know what's on your mind. Have a great weekend.
