colors for me

it still is tomato harvest and with some wonderful feta cubes and fresh basil, sea salt, a dash of white balsamico and a bit more olive oil, this is a favorite for everyone at our table.
for me it's not just the taste of summer, already in autumn, but the colors too. it is a feast for my eyes and so we will enjoy some more tomato dishes tomorrow...

for dinner i sauteed mini patisson, with onions, not very picturesque, just white in white. and then there is lots of different green lettuce being served. mostly twice a day. i like to serve all the fresh vegetables and am glad, that thea loves all kinds of salads. she definitely prefers raw vegetables over cooked ones. and an other thing with vegetables, they need to be served with sauce or dressing (in case of a salad). this is very important to be able to soak the bread and enjoy the whole meal fully...
i don't know where she got that idea, but she is fixed on sauce and bread and usually over joyed if easy avalable.
it has frequently been helpful, as she can be tempted into eating mostly everything, if there is sauce available. and this is definitely a plus when eating out or being guests at a strangers house. so, for her, it's not the color, but the amount and taste of the sauce.
