#FoodieFriDIY no 110: Tomatoes

Sharing is caring!

Happy Friday! Next week starts back to school for us! College boy heads back over the weekend, and the other two will be starting mid week. The summer seems like it just flew by! I have mixed emotions about back to school this year. For one, it’s starting to hit me that my empty nest days are going to be here before I know it. I’m a little sad. I still have a few more years, but it’s starting to feel more real. I’m sure many of you have already been through it or are feeling what I am feeling now. It’s just like a knot in the back of my throat.

I was actually planning to feature crockpot recipes today until a few tomato recipes caught my eye. And the end of summer tomatoes is another thing I’m a little sad about right now. So crockpot recipes can wait for a week or so…link those recipes up this week! I even updated one of my favorite tomato recipes, Tomato, Basil and Feta Summer Salad, this week too. If you get a moment, stop by and check it out. I promise you won’t be disappointed!

Colorful, healthy, and packed with flavor, this easy Tomato, Basil and Feta Summer Salad is the perfect side dish for any summer dinner, and even makes for a wonderful light lunch as well. Go ahead and customize it by adding in cucumber or even summer corn…the basil dressing goes well with everything!

I think you are going to love my features as well! I am going to make sure I try them all in the next couple of weeks.

Ready for the party?

We’re not really a rules-type party. But here’s what we do ask. 

1. Link up your favorite recipes and projects from your own blog. Roundups are fine as long as they include links to the recipes or DIY projects. Please DO NOT link a post without a recipe, project, craft, or tutorial.

2. We’d be truly grateful if you shared our party to other food and DIY blog friends so others can join in the fun! Tweet us. Share us on Facebook (the party will go up on my page on Thursday evening, if you’d like to share from there). However you can help us spread the word, we appreciate!

3. It’s not a requirement of course, but if you can, try to visit another link or two and leave a thoughtful comment. Give someone a shout out on social media. Use the hashtag #FoodieFriDIY…we’re trying to grow a community for all of us, and it’s always nice to make new friends.

4. We’d love it if you’d follow us on Pinterest.

Don’t forget after you get done linking up to drop by my Facebook page and share your favorite recipes or DIY project that you have linked up. I will try my best to show your post some extra love…please be sure to share either the link or the number in the link up so it’s easy for me to find it!

Let’s get this party started!
