They seem to love them.
My husband cooked on the grill tonight and I hung out in the kiddie pool for an hour after work. I will tell you that the scent coming from that grill was getting me all worked up. My husband served roasted chicken, and potatoes and vegetables in a zesty sauce. My contribution was a caprese salad. Someday I’m going to do a balsamic reduction to pour over it.
But not today.
It was divine. In fact, the entire meal was delicious.
I just felt compelled to tell you that.
It’s probably due to the fact that for the past several nights we’ve had tomato sandwiches for dinner. Don’t get me wrong – I love tomato sandwiches and consider them one of the best things about summer.
But dinner on the grill . . . swoon.

I took this while walking along the carriage road at Eagle Lake. If you’ve never heard about the carriage roads of Acadia National Park, feel free to check them out here:
A Brief History of the Carriage Roads in Acadia National Park
They’re absolutely unique. Some day I’m going to take a carriage ride from the stable there. I say it every year but never have anyone to go with. Maybe next year.

Famine in the Horn of Africa: How to help
And on that note, I bid you farewell. Until next time then, my friends . . .
You may be swooning over the grill food but being a vegetarian, I'm swooning over your caprese salad! And I love balsamic which would just be de-lish on those scrumptious tomatoes!!!
Okay...more pix of Maine please!!!
What a delicious dinner, I'd swoon too if my husband cooked like your's, in fact, I'd faint! LOL!!!
My mouth is drooling over that caprese salad!!!
Do you lease out your husband???? :)
I'm a vegetarian, too, and love caprese salad. Yum! And your lovely postcard from Acadia National Park is glorious. I've seen so many pretty pics from there; I'd love to go someday. And, yes, Africa, it's so unreal, so sad
Now if I were a lover or tomatoes I would love those tomatoes too!
The tomatoes look awesome.
I didn't even know about the carriage roads.......where do you access them?
Great balance between Summer escape, and caring for the world!

oooh, I'm swooning over that photo!. I make the same salad here, love love love it.
And, may I take that carriage ride with you next year? Actually I bet you'll have MANY offers here....
I'm coming right over for some of that Caprese salad. The tomatoes here in Maine are still green, but I can smell and taste that dish all the way from here. Just simmer down some good balsamic til it is a little syrupy. IF it's possible to improve on what you already have there....
That salad looks amazing!!!! So delicious:)
welcome home! Love the black eyed susant picture! Every time I think I have a favorite of yours, you post another one!
Oh my goodness I too served Andrew's tomatoes with cheese and basil drizzled with olive oil, but your caprese salad just blows me away! And I'm thinking you should do marketing for Acadia because your postcard is just the most delightful image I've seen of there in a long time! xo ~Lili
OMG. Between the food and the pictures, I can't see straight.
I am not quite sure which is more delicious looking...your Caprese salad or your Maine photos!
..Sign me up for the carriage ride!
Those photos are making me so hungry!! I had watermelon for dinner tonight--nothing else and I'm starving. Guess I'll just head off to bed to ward off the hunger pains!
What a guy, huh!A COOK--what more could we want?! I ask you!;)
I hope you enjoyed the Caprese salad--that would have been the tops in my book--grilled chicken and veggies are wonderful-but oh! that Caprese SALAD--OH MY.
And lolling around in the pool while your "poor" husband LABORS over the torridly, hot grill. What an awesome woman you are, Kate! I truly wanna be like you when I finally grow up.:) I'll go on the carriage ride with you.
Just looking at those yummy tomatoes makes one realise how lucky we are to be able to choose exactly what we wish to eat for every meal - unlike those in the Horn of Africa who are dependent upon whatever meagre supply is available.
May the tomatoes continue until you tire of them!
Looks great and even a little healthy as well. Richard from the Amish community of Lebanon,Pa
You need to come here and bring some of those tomatoes and I'll get some mozzarella cheese and fresh basil and we'll pig out .. a nice Malbec to wash it down .. yummmmmm
thanks so much for stopping by my blo and your nice comments..I am so glad you did, because now I stopped by yours and joined on as a Follower! Us photographers need to stick together for inspiration.LOL
we sure think alike...i picked tomatoes last night and made a caprese salad too...so summer....
kary and teddy
I luv a man that knows his way around a grill.
Your salad looks delish!
Just caught up on your Maine posts Kate .... looks like such a beautiful place.
I'm not one for tomatoes but dinner on the grill .... mmmmmm yummy!
We'll not be seeing any tomatoes here for a while yet - our cold wet spring, followed a blistering hot drought has confused the crap out of our garden, though we do finally have some green tomatoes. But I'm real glad to take a look at yours - yummy and beautiful!
You had me at the mozzarella. Lovely. Thanks for sharing the photos and feel free to drop by me too, soon.
Gosh what a rollercoaster Kate. I went from YUM to SIGH to OH NO in the space of a minute!!
Loving your holiday snaps too.
Kate this looks to die for .
Wow. I have to make this.
Love your photos of your vacation.
Admission: I have never had 'caprese salad'...probably the last person on earth that has not!
Today I met friends at an Italian pizzaria. And I ordered a caprese salad which was listed as an appetizer. My overall comment is that I was disappointed. The tomatoes were that cardboard variety that comes from Mexico, the mozzarella was not very tasty, and there was not basil or balsamic reduction! All I could think about...dream about...was the photo of your caprese salad you posted this day! It has been so hot down here in southeast Texas that the tomatoes did not produce good ones this year! So I will continue to dream and hopefully enjoy a really good caprese salad one of these days!
I'm so jealous of your tomatoes. It has been such a drought here that fresh tomatoes are limited. Maybe fall when we get a bit more rain. Love, love, love the pictures of Maine and makes me so excited for our trip in October.
Oh good heavens, my mouth is watering! My husband is about to go grill some chicken and some zucchini from the farm around the corner... And I have to make a cucumber salad and some corn on the cob... :)
