Just in time for the 4th of July

We were getting ready to go to Sarah's yesterday afternoon, and I happened to walk out to the garden. It is such a jungle that I have not been keeping close tabs on anything. But even in walking out there, I saw all these little cherry tomatoes just waiting for me to come get them. They were emmm-mmmm good!
I just had to show these of Lorelei and her daddy....they spent the night in Indianapolis Thursday night, and we stayed with Lorelei at their house. She was perfectly fine with us...had not been upset at all when it was just us there...
but I happened to see them when they got back and held the curtain back for Lorelei to see them walking in. Oh, the excitement! Mama....mama....DA-DA! Oh, was that girl every happy to see them.

Then our other daughter came home this weekend...and she spent a lot of time there. Yesterday eve when R. was leaving, Lorelei almost started crying...she loves her auntie.

Roger also makes this cheesecake pie...it is real simple. An 8 oz thing of creme cheese softened, a big bowl of cool whip, a big spoonful of sour cream, a tablespoon or so of real lemon flavoring, and some splenda...whip together and have a graham crust ready. Lorelei really loved that! Any of us that she seen eating it, she had to share.

Some of you may have noticed that I turned off word verification...I also had turned off the moderation. Well, I have only had that all turned off a week or two, and already got spam. So, I am going back to moderating the comments, though I did not turn on the word verification. Just wanted you to know that your comment won't publish until I have had a chance to view it.

Beautiful cherry tomatoes, Rose... We haven't seen any fresh ones yet around here. I cannot wait 'til our big Tennessee tomatoes come in --from Grainger County. YUMMMMMMMMMM...

Lorelei loves her Daddy, doesn't she???? Glad your older daughter came home for the weekend... How is she doing????

I despise Word Verification... Glad you took it off. BUT--having to approve your comments is FINE. I do it for posts over 2 days old.

By having to approve your comments, you can catch the spam before it is published. I get that stupid Chinese spam about every 3rd day... I try to catch it and delete it --but sometimes I don't catch it early enough... I may have to start approving all of my posts too. Drives me crazy.

Hugs,
Betsy

Tomatoes are one of my favorite vegetables, the cherry tomato being my most favorite. Cute pictures of Lorelei and her daddy!

I'm excited about those cherry tomatoes. I'll drive over right away!

My plant has green tomatoes, but nothing ripe yet. I can't wait! And I like that pie recipe, too.

Those tomatoes look delicious. I think you even have enough to share. I love cherry tomatoes (or any tomato).
The pictures of Lorelei and her Daddy are cute.

I can't wait till our tomatoes are ripe. The cheesecake sounds wonderful. I'm going to have to make it. I hope you had a wonderful 4th.

Your tomatoes are way ahead of mine! But I DO have tomato flowers. :)

Those tomatoes look terrific. We bought some from a roadside stand the other day and they were delicious, too. Just can't seem to get a decent tomato in a supermarket!

Those cherry tomatoes look great! We've been haunting the farmer's market for good stuff to eat. Lorelei and her daddy look so happy. That pie sounds good...I have a similar recipe. Sorry you are having trouble with span again.
