Pickins’ From My Garden

I just had to share this photo from a hot day in my Ohio home garden.  My kitty Grace specifically loves to help me when I’m in the garden on a hot summer day . As you can tell in the photo she doesn’t mind getting in the soil with me to harvest these tasty treats.  It’s so cute how dedicated to gardening she is and yet she doesn’t heat the harvest!

  • 2 tablespoons olive oil

  1. Heat the olive oil in a large, heavy skillet over medium-high heat. Add the garlic and ginger and cook, stirring, just until fragrant, about 1 minute. Add the tomatoes, sprinkle with the salt, and cook, tossing often, until they just start to collapse, 2@-4 minutes. Remove from the heat.
  2. Add the honey, sprinkle with the chives or scallions, and mix gently with a rubber spatula.
  3. The more you stir, the juicier they get.
