kids start going back to school this week. i always feel like the last 2 weeks of summer is about cramming all of the dinners, projects, and trips that didn't happen throughout the summer.
we had a little dinner party and invited some kids and friends over for a feast. we grilled some salmon and asparagus and made some pesto with basil from the garden. a wonderful celebration of summer with friends.
serve over 2 bunches of asparagus or green beans, grilled
tomato jam ingredients
1 teaspoon olive oil, more if needed
1 small sweet onion, diced
2 cloves of garlic, diced
1 1/2 pint of garden fresh tomatoes, diced or halved if using cherry tomatoes
