Oh fresh, sweet, vine-ripened ruby red tomato…
How I love you from my head to-ma-toes!

It is tomato time of year around here, and there is nothing finer than a fresh-picked tomato right from the vine to the dinner table.

For today’s #WorldWatercolorMonth painting, I give you …. the Tomato…. in Daniel Smith Pyrrol Scarlett, Hansa Yellow, Green Gold, and Sap Green.

And to celebrate, here is a recipe for what we had for dinner the other evening – Brushetta Chicken.  A plump grilled chicken breast smothered with fresh mozzarella cheese and topped with sweet, juicy tomatoes, basil, and garlic.

Oh the yumminess!

And even better – oh the easiness!

Hope you’ll give this winner winner chicken dinner a try.  We had it with some brown rice and quinoa and a fresh spinach salad.  How will you serve yours?

  1. Your tomato shines with that simplicity and the perfectly placed drips. I could see you illustrating for food sites, truly…..you and Charlie! Your recipe looks good, even for a vegetarian….but my husband would love it. I think that a good spinach salad would be perfect for him as well.

  2. Who doesn’t love a fresh juicy red tomato just off the vine??? Ours won’t be ripe for another month or two but I’ve seen small supplies at the farmer’s market. I would love to make this on the weekend if I can score some tomatoes Saturday morning. And your gorgeous watercolor tomato is fit for any cookbook my dear!

  3. Ah! revenge of the tomato 🙂
    Suddenly yesterday I just had to have a tomato/mozzarella/oregano/olive oil salad for dinner . Ran into the supermarket and there was not a tomato in sight ! What is going on ? it’s tomato season and we’re like just the third biggest world producer 😦
    But yours is just so beautifully painted that I am a bit more satisfied now 🙂
