...culmination of it all

Anybody recognize this??I recently saw this posted on one of my 'daily reads' -GREAT way to use up some of our plentiful crop of tomatoes!! A few small alterations (we used Jalapenos instead of Bell peppers, and swapped the tuna & crab for sausage & kielbasa already in the 'fridge) . DH declared it 'the best meal we've ever cooked' - and he took the photo all of his own initiation!! THANKS for the recipe Suzy!!
Tonight was Pizza on the Grille! Fresh from the garden Basil pesto, sliced tomatoes, chopped onions, fresh mozzarella and gouda - mmm....

It's nice to pretend that we are healthy eaters... In reality the NY State Fair starts this week, so these will be some of the last garden fresh meals we will see for a while! Bring on the fried dough and the greasy sausage!!

My 'exciting' saling finds of the weekend are definitely NOT photo worthy!
~At the start of the saling season I was hoping to find a 'decent' vacuum for my attic studio - the hose on my ancient cannister had a 4" crack and was rendered unusable. So, in the mean time I had been putting the broom and dust pan to work! Call me what you will, but I just can't bring myself to using our 'Good' main house vacuum on the dusty crevices in the attic! Saturday morning I happened upon my 'dream machine'... an upright Hoover with hose attachment, new belt, new bags... $5!!
~About two months ago, DH asked me on my way out the door one Saturday morning "Hey, if you see any of those BIG metal tomatoe cages, will you grab them?". Well, we won't be able to use them this year, but I did 'grab' a few on Saturday. We are set for the 2010 garden!! ( @3/.25¢, I don't have any objection to storing them for a few months!!).
Like I said.... NOT photo worthy purchases!!

How fabulous!! And looks so yummy! I am loving these pizzas on the grill, I've been wanting to do this. I'm thinking tonight. Thanks for stopping by and for trying Mrs Romano's Seafood Creole. xo, suzy

Somehow putting a can of chunk tuna into a dish labeled "creole" just doesn't sound right, so I know I'd prefer your substitutions. It sounds delish! I think I'll go get our propane tanks filled today so I can do those Pizzas on the Grille--it's still just too hot down here in so. MS to light up the oven.
