Tomato Tomäto {& the weekend}

Tonight I made a little appetizer before dinner . . . it was easy and super tasty! Some people are not big tomato fans I know (my hubby is one of them) but I have always liked tomato's so this was good to me! It was refreshing since today was so warm and then the wine made it even better! I have done them like this before and put them in the oven for a bit, and that was really good too, but tonight I just sliced them and topped them off with some salt and pepper, garlic, oregano and parmesan!

This weekend we finally got some nice, warm weather around here! Thank the Lord!! It was about time, although we are expecting really bad rain and possible tornado's tonight {uggh} . . . . but the rest of the week should be nice I think. I did work all weekend but managed to get out and enjoy the weather a little Saturday. I thought I would get out and go to the park and take Mr. Big and go feed the ducks. I wanted M to go, but there was a big basketball game on and I knew he wanted to watch it, so it was just me and my lil man!

Us before heading to the park!

We did make one stop first . . . Sonic! Mr. Big was trying to decide what sounded good! ha ha! Poor little guy needs a hair cut! Luckily I think we are taking him this week!

He loved the duckies! We fed them bread and Mr. B got a few pieces too! It was nice to get out and enjoy the day! Then I took him home and got back out and went up to Marshall's where I found a few goodies! I always have luck at that store { and TJ Maxx!}

Tonight we watched the CMA awards. Did any of you watch?? I enjoyed it and liked seeing how all the gals dressed! Women in Country music have a style all their own and I love it! 2 of the evenings big winners were Miranda Lambert and of course Lady A! I was glad to see Miranda Lambert win a few awards and not have Taylor Swift win every single one! I may be back later for some of the fashion from the night, in case you missed it! I saw several people that looked great, then a few were not so hot - but isn't that how it always goes??

I don't say it enough, but thanks to all of you who come to my blog and those of you who leave comments! I'm not as good as I want to be about making sure I leave comments on pages of all those who leave them for me! But please know I recognize it and love each and every comment!! =) Hope everyone had a great weekend! Ta ta for now!

I looooove tomatoes. I can't imagine not liking them! One of my favorite things to eat in the summer is toast with sliced heirloom tomatoes, salt & pepper, and a little balsamic vinegar. SO GOOD.

Those tomatoes look delish! I've never made them like that before, definitely going to give it a try! :)
