Mondays Musings





Here is yet another South Carolina barn - with the roof cut off - but it's a barn.  An old one  and the door does not match the rest of it.



Now here is a great recipe - it's easy and healthy and makes it easy to eat veggies.  Isn't it pretty?



Cut your tomatoes in half crosswise, season with salt and pepper. In a small frying pan add crushed garlic, olive oil and fresh thyme, cook til golden, take off the heat and add in grated parmesan cheese. Place your tomato halves cut side down on and oiled grill until you get grill marks, then turn them over with tongs and spoon the garlic cheese mixture on top and continue cooking. (Pinterest)


THOUGHT FOR THE DAY:


YOU ARE WORTHY
 - love, chatty 

I welcome my new followers - thank you - and acorn hallow - I can't find yours. Let me know please and thanks.

This recipe looks good, Sandie, thanks for sharing! Two things I look forward to most out of the garden are tomatoes and cucumbers.
Enjoy your day!

Tammy @ The Northern Nest said...

Good morning from a New Follower!

I do love Roma tomatoes...that sounds yummy!

I also like barns...I always notice the regional differences. Where I'm from in Ky they are weathered wood and some were used for tobacco curing. Up here in Ohio they have a lot of them have quilt paintings. In central Ky they are painted black as pitch and I have no idea why...LOL!

Hope you have a great day!

That reminded me that I forgot to pick up a tomato for myself.

Renae said...

When the Olympics came to Utah, I worked for the catering company that fed NBC. I learned to make tomatoes like those. We blended them too and made an awesome soup. You keep me smiling!

Loving that quote.

Granny Annie said...

We haven't had a garden for a few years but we let our across-the-road neighbors use our land for their garden and in exchange they give us produce. We are lusting after their tomatoes that are loading down the vines. Already we have benefited from their squash and zucchini. Easy gardening:) Can't wait to try your tomato recipe.

The tomatoes look delicious. Yep that sounds like a healthy stuffed veggie.
Hope you have a great week!

LL Cool Joe said...

My 17 year old hates tomatoes, but maybe this recipe would change her mind!

Modern Day Disciple said...

YUM on those Tomatoes my friend. I am a big fan of tomatoes!

TARYTERRE said...

LOVE the barn. I have to tell you that I've been photographing them too, since I got another camera. And it's become dangerous. I scream STOP in the middle of the road if I see one I want. And brakes squeal as we pull over so I can snap the pic. My hubby likes your approach much better. Click as you speed past. LOL take care.

Lynn said...

Those tomatoes look divine!

DeanO said...

My Grandma used to make tomatoes somewhat like your recipe...awesome good stuff, usually served with a cheese bread

If that barn could talk I'd love to hear the stories it would tell! Have a great Monday, Sandie!

EM Illustrator said...

Lovely message in your post today, sometimes we get side tracked and forget that we are worthy. THen it's great to have friends that stand by you and 'push' you back on track. Thank you!
Big hugs,

pretty to look at and even better to taste. and healthy to boot.

barbara l. hale said...

Good barn. It's the rustic ones like that that I like. And those tomatoes look great. I am afraid that I am the only one in this family who would appreciate them though. Maybe one of these days I will make myself a small batch.

Carol said...

I will be trying that recipe...might use Basil instead. Thanks!

Gloria Hood said...

Oh yes grilled tomatoes! Love them! But....... I need New England tomatoes, not these Florida yucky ones! LOL

The Jones Family said...

Great tomato recipe. I always love your very positive quotes. Thanks.

Ginny said...

The tomatoes look yummy! Too bad about all these decrepit old barn falling into ruins, but they do make great blog posts!

Susan said...

The tomatoes sound good, Sandie. And yes, we must think of ourselves as worthy. If we don't, who will? That includes YOU, dear Sandie. You are VERY worthy of all good things in life. Susan

Ann said...

When I first read the barn had the roof cut off I was thinking the actual barn had no roof not that it was cut off in the picture....lol

Those tomatoes look and sound delicious. I'll have to give this a try when we start getting tomatoes out of our garden

Dee said...

When my Franks tomatoes ripen I will have to surprise him with this recipe.He will be impressed. As for the barn roof...I thought the same as Ann that the actual roof was cut off...LOL

Kathy ... aka Nana said...

As soon as the tomatoes ripen up around here, we'll definitely grill us some tomatoes! Yum!

Shelly said...

You always have the best recipes!

Grandma Bonnie said...

I just love tomatoes. I grow a bunch each summer. I can't eat them any more though. I will have to make this for my kids they will enjoy every bite. Thanks for sharing.

SquirrelQueen said...

Those tomatoes look delicious. I just fired up the grill and now I wish I had some tomatoes to go with the steaks.

I like that barn with its odd color door.

Debby@Just Breathe said...

The tomotoes looks delicious! You make me laugh saying "makes it easy to eat veggies." I guess your not crazy about eating veggies. I love them! Have a great week Sandie. Hugs, Debby

Maple Lane said...

Tomatoes are one of my most favorite fruits~ this year I have over 25 tomato plants in my garden!

You are worthy also, chatty.:)

Betsy from Tennessee said...

Hi Sandie..... Love the Thought for the Day...We never think of ourselves as being worthy, do we? But we should.

That tomato dish sounds wonderful... I'll wait 'til the good Tennessee tomatoes come in --and then I'll try it. Thanks!

Hugs,
Betsy

Linda O'Connell said...

Hi Sandie,
Our garden is heavy with green tomatoes and your photo and recipe is so yummy looking, I can't wait. Have agreat day.

Sharon said...

Thanks for this one today. Some days I have trouble thinking I'm worth anything - but my self-worth is not based on my self-evaluation. My worth is based on the cross. Though I did not deserve His love, Jesus deemed me worthwhile enough to save.

Glory!

Debbie said...

I'm having a hard time getting caught up with reading. As you said in one of your posts, the faster I go, the behinder I get. (My behind status comes from spending hours and hours trying to delete enough on my computer to make it a little less wonky. So far, I'm only seeing a little improvement.

I think this recipe looks delicious, and I really loved and did understand your comments from Sunday's post about what you have gleaned from John.
