It's Summer Now

So Memorial Day happened. That means it's summer. I don't care what the calendar says, Memorial Day means it's summer. Summer means tomatoes. I love tomatoes. I cannot wait until it's officially tomato season. I cannot wait until our little garden (hopefully) gives us our first homegrown tomatoes. I also love cheese. And puff pastry. Put them all together and you have one of my favorite summer treats: Tomato Tart.
These weren't the ripest, most beautiful, red tomatoes ever, but they tasted just fine, especially after roasting them. I can't wait until our herbs have grown enough for us to use fresh rosemary and thyme on these roasted tomatoes.
Tomatoes roasted with salt, pepper, rosemary, thyme, & olive oil placed upon a sheet of baked puff pastry and then sprinkled with crumbled goat cheese.

We made this to take to the Memorial Day picnic we attended. It was well received, I think, and just one square was left when we departed. That's a good sign, right?
