Holding on to Summer

Although the temperature in DC is not supposed to break 80 degrees for the next four days, I’m trying to convince myself that summer is not over. I just got home from the Jersey shore this week and I’m not ready to let it go.

Fortunately for me, my vegetable box came stocked with the gold standard of summer produce: heirloom tomatoes. With all the gorgeous colors and interesting shapes, I was a little nervous about not doing them justice. None of the recipes seemed worthy and I’d almost decided to eat them raw until I came across this puppy in the latest House Beautiful:

Heirloom Tomato Pie!

Heirloom Tomato Pie

I grew up eating my mom’s tomato pie and it was delicious even though I did get some funny looks when I’d tell my friends about it. This tomato pie promises to be just as incredible (if not more so) with an herb spiked mayo, gruyere, and most importantly, amazingly fresh tomatoes. It’s on the menu for tonight, the pâte brisée is resting in the fridge, and I might burst with impatience. If you live in the area you need to swing by and taste it... if there’s any left.

Happy Weekend, Friends!
