A tomato, some apricots, whatnot

The season's first tomato (not counting cherry tomatoes). An Early Girl. Yes, I won the Samyn tomato growing contest. Given the weather, how could I not?

Quite a bit of basil visible in the background, too...

More of what I think of as "regular food," which is my favorite kind. Chicken with the aforementioned basil; salad with the real-wine-red-wine-vinaigrette mentioned a post or two ago; a slice of The Bread grilled.

And something rather special: "little apricot cakes": lovely is definitely the word.

Finally, summer pleasures include some reading and some sewing (napkins with mitered corners). The attention and care required for the latter are part of the appeal.
