Basil and garlic. Just close your eyes and breathe deep. Isn’t it the best? It’s aromatherapy, summer food style.
Now listen – a tomato-butter sauce situation bubbling gently on the stove, and yes, thanks for asking, it is as absolutely luscious as it sounds x10. You should know that it’s also studded with white beans a quick pinch of grated parmesan, and served atop tender, flaky, flavorful barramundi (THE ULTIMATE SUSTAINABLE AND TASTY WHITE FISH WHICH WE LOVE).
Wows. These are seriously exciting food times.
Last night, at my best friend’s house, we picked cherry tomatoes off of the exploding tomato bush situation that has taken over her garden and popped them in our mouths and felt their juicy little bursts and tasted their legit candy sweetness, all while setting lofty goals about what herbs we should grow next year and swatting at mosquitos and literally picking up the fuzzy tomato vines and breathing in their everything, because they have to be the only thing in the world that smells so green and grassy and magical.
Does anyone know of perfumes, candles, and/or other scented goods that replicate the tomato vine smell? I am literally asking this as a real question right now. HALP.
