Tomatoes and Watermelon

Patrice and I ate this first at The Bazaar @ the SLS in Beverly Hills from a Favorite Chef that I photographed a while back, José Andrés. It may look or sound a bit odd but it is really such an elegant and refreshing bite.
Simply cut up an ice cold watermelon into cubes and add the hearts of the tomatoes (or seed part), this works great if you are making sauce because they always ask you to de-seed the tomato, then add a baby Basil leaf to the top....... The color is so beautiful and on a warm afternoon, I can't think of anything better :-) 
More fun stuff made from the tomatoes and basil in the garden ...my watermelon was taken over by squash :-)

Fresh Pizza

Focaccia and Pizza in Italy was amazing! I am still craving so I made this at home with my excess of tomatoes! I love keeping the tomatoes and Basil fresh :-)
