Tomato Bowling

10 Sep

A couple of years ago, round about this time of year, my daughter Meep came to me and said, “Mom! Look at this perfect bowling pin!”

She was holding a tomato. A yellow pear tomato. And she was right – it did look like a perfect bowling pin.

And so, what was the next logical step for a family to do but go tomato bowling?

        (Still chuckling…) oh yes, I must!! Although the temptation would be to eat the ‘pins’……we just love that variety of tomatoes!! Thanks so much for the day brightener! Hugs…..

    Stopping by to say “Hi”, love the tomato bowling…very creative! I’m not sure I’ve ever knew there was such a thing as a yellow pear tomato, you learn something new everyday 🙂

      So glad that you stopped by! The yellow tomatoes are a beautiful addition to a green salad – and tasty, too! Not to mention their other purpose in life: bowling pins. 🙂

    When I was growing up adults would say, ‘Don’t play with your food’. I’m glad these days all good mums encourage playing with food. What gorgeous looking tomatoes xx
