Summer Squash

I made this pasta the other day with the leftovers in my fridge. I have so many tomatoes around from my farm delivery. I think I've been eating an average of 2 whole tomatoes a day. The pasta was just tomatoes, onions and garlic heated in olive oil over whole wheat pasta with fresh basil on top. My herb plants are really getting large. I bought some Thyme seeds over the weekend since I've been using it so often in recipes.

Yesterday Lucia came over to hang out on the roof and enjoy the heat with me. We made some iced coffees and finished most of the blueberry crumb. Later we made hamburgers on the grill. I had made some homemade coleslaw dressing earlier used that with my bag of cabbage. I can't seem to get enough coleslaw lately. We also made a side dish and I got to use my summer squash and zucchini. When I saw that summer squash in last week's delivery I had no idea what to make with it but this was so good. I hope we get more squash in the future.
