Red

Red; possibly my least favorite color to wear, it washes me out.

Red; possibly my most favorite color to eat, it fills me up.

If I could eat only one meal per day for the rest of my life, it would be Caprese salad with juicy, red, ripe tomatoes. 

Tomatoes make red a tolerable color for me, as I tend to wear what I eat.

  15. The tomatoes have been unbelievably good this year. They seem to love the awful heat we've been having. We have that salad at least three times a week. I even bought some really expensive buffalo mozzarella. Oh, so good.

  19. While the salad does look yummy, I know it's not. I say that only cuz I cannot stand tomatoes. Even worse, tomato seeds left over from when someone forgot I hated tomatoes and tried to take them off of something (e.g. a salad).

    But, again, the Caprese salad looks beautiful!

    =)

    Happy Monday, Suz!

  29. 'Tis my MOST favorite salad in the world. The first time I ever ate it, I was in Key West in 1988. The Source has made it for us faithfully ever since.


    Red - my most favorite color, period.

  31. That looks SO good.... just got home from work and am snacking on graham ctackers and wonderings what's for dinner. I would love for a big plate of Caprese Salad to MAGICALLY appear... I would happily DIVE in and emerge, gorged, smiling and satisfied!
