When I looked through my stash of thrifted binding I realized that I didn't have enough of any colour that would work. The finished edges of the striped sheet that I had cut off caught my eye and I had an idea.
I decided the use some more of the striped sheet to make a wide binding tape. I love the way this finished off the blanket. Here's the front.
And the back.
Yesterday before heading to the beach E decided he wanted to learn to make our favourite tomato pie. We had picked some of our tomatoes and had been looking forward to our first tomato pie since last Autumn. I made the dough and then we did the rest together.
Then layer on the tomatoes. Lots. E is just getting started in this photo.
Put on the topping mix. This is about 2/3 cup mayo, 1/2 cup of grated cheese, lots of fresh garlic, salt and pepper and some romano or parmesan.
Then fold the edges in.
Bake at 350 for about 30 minutes or until golden brown.
Enjoy! If you only make one tomato recipe this summer then I really think this should be it. It is beyond delicious.
And makes a great beach dinner with a fresh salad.
