thankful thursday {link up}

{Link up your own Thankful Thursday post below...}

This Thursday I am thankful for...

1) Sarcastic birthday shirts.  Especially the homemade kind... with embarrassing photos ironed on... and sarcastic jokes scrawled on them with sharpies.  I mean, that is the best way to show your friends that you care, right?  Had an amazing birthday dinner last weekend... for an even more amazing friend.  Happy birthday B!

2) Red tomatoes... finally!  I have 3 tomato plants in our backyard... two growing bigger tomatoes (better boys) and one growing cherry tomatoes.  Finally some of my cherry tomatoes have started turning red!  I am completely loaded down with green tomatoes... at the rate I'm going, I'm going to have tomatoes until Christmas.

3) Fried green tomatoes.  Speaking of green tomatoes... Tuesday night Lance and I walked over to our favorite neighborhood bar for some wings and fried green tomatoes.  Amazing.  Can't beat a summer night, a summer beer, and some fried goodness.

Congrats on your first tomatoes! I didn't plant any this year & I have missed them. Thankfully we have a very kind neighbor that gave us some. Last year I swear I had tomatoes up until late September. It was awesome!!! :)

My tomatoes are just coming on this summer, too. I am making a marinara sauce for dinner. Fresh tomatoes, fresh herbs. Amazing!
