Tomato Veggie Time in W.A.

Fresh & Artificial

Here is a lovely Basket of Flowers

There are Freshly picked ones added to some Artificial looking Roses, ready to take to Church for our Sunday Service.

Flowers add a special touch where ever they are put for people to look at and admire.  You can always make up a special vase for your kitchen or lounge room to add a bit of something special for yourself to look at for a few days or for the coming week.  Friends will always admire your creation or display and maybe you will encourage someone to do like wise.  We have Geraldton Wax flowers in the above plus some Lantana and a few odd leaves complete the arrangement.  The are put into Wet Oasis in a container to hold the shape of the display.

Hope you like my display – maybe take a photo of the one that you make as a memento.

Time to have a Recipe now:  What about Tomatoes then? 

This is the time of our Growing Season and Tomatoes are growing well – so what to do with them?  Well here is one nice way to use them which is very tasty and not difficult to make.

Baked Tomatoes

Ingredients:

Tomatoes: plus – Dried Mixed Herbs or  Dried Basil; White Pepper: Ground Garlic; Olive Oil.

Method:

Cut Tomatoes in half.  Lay Cut side up on Oiled Baking Sheet.  Sprinkle with Herbs,(I prefer the Basil), White Pepper & Garlic.  Drizzle the Olive Oil over.  Cook in hot oven till bubbling & cooked through.

Serve as Vegetable with Dinner or on Toast.

Or:

Can be cooked in Fry Pan then half way through cooking,turn the halved Tomatoes over to sizzle and finish.  You can put Tomatoes in when you fry your Bacon and add the Herbs as above.

Rose Bud

James: Chapter 3 verse 18: says Peacemakers who sow in peace raise a harvest of righteousness.
Here is a Poem for today: as we have Roses in the above Basket of Flowers this one seems nice.
Fragrant Rose:
Dear God I’m thinking of that flower. Ever fragrant in every hour.  The wonders of this Universe makes one want to write a verse.  The delicate softness of the petals against the hardness of different metals.
To touch a Rose is a wonderful thing.  Man made metals  –  no real pleasure bring.  But to touch and smell a dew fresh Rose is a pleasure few of us really knows.
To touch and feel your wonderful world, especially the Petals so curiously curled.  What a priceless treasure the Rose must be, I pray they’ll be there in eternity!

Fig Jam is Yummy

Green Leaves

Well here we have a display of Green and White – mainly Leaves and a few White Blossoms.  They can look very nice on a dinning room table for a change instead of the more colourful ones that we usually like to have.

Maybe you would like to give it a go this week and find some interesting leaves on your trees or hedges, then just pop in a couple of flowers to make it look pretty.

Here is a Fig Recipe:                                      Fig Jam

4 pound – Fresh Figs; 3 pound – Granulated Sugar, Strained Juice of 2-4 Lemons; half pint – Warm Water.

Use Figs when they are quite ripe, then the skins should be thin and the pulp juicy.  Cut off stalk and calyx ends, slice the Figs thinly or cut them into small pieces.  Put the fruit and water into the preserving pan and simmer gently until soft and pulpy.  Stir in the Lemon Juice, then the Sugar.  Bring slowly to the boil and boil moderately fast until a little of the preserve will set when dropped on to a cold plate.  While the jam is boiling stir frequently, to prevent it from burning.

Pot the Jam while it is still very hot and cover.

Here is a Poem for today:

Thoughts are Thoughts

 Fleeting thoughts come and go, Quickly they fade away.

Like a whisper they are gone like a breath of air.

Quickly some come, then are gone. Some never to come again.

Thoughts are words, words from the heart, thoughts from our minds.

We cannot snatch them back. Some very vivid, then gone like the wind.

Fleeting, Fleeting where has it gone? What did it mean, how will I know

if I cannot recall? It seemed so beautiful, a wonderful thought

and now it has gone and I know not where. If I could catch it back in the air what

a wonder that would be. But no, it has fleetingly brushed

through my brain like a soft brush of wings. A fleeting thought, makes us think and wonder.

Once I was young and the thoughts stayed longer.

But now I am old and they quickly seem to fade away.  I cannot recall them so easily –

So I call them Fleeting Thoughts. Let us treasure our thoughts while we may.

Many are precious, many are not and many are – Fleeting thoughts soft as a gentle breeze

 and then – They are gone.
