Summer has become my litany. I can't want for it. I can't bear putting on another hoodie. I am so done with heavy meaty foods. I want fresh. I want my CSA to start!!!! I want warm tomatoes fresh from my garden to make this recipe with, Summer, I want you! This recipe is really good. It will be even better with Summer tomatoes!
