Not sure exactly when the post will go up -- some time today. Do stop by and leave a comment -- and check out some of the terrific recipes these ladies post.

Hi Vicki, I was intrigued by your post title, I thought it was a take on the "Travelling Willburys". I am going to drop by and find out more. Big hugs, Margie.

Love the title "traveling tomatoes." I've already been to the Mystery Lovers blog and read your post. I'm hungry for gazpacho and it's a little after 6 in the morning right now.

Thanks for the shout-out. I really enjoyed your version of the gazpacho and it had to be fabulous with the homemade vinegar.

You guys are the best! I really appreciate the comments over on the Mystery Lovers Kitchen. As I've said before, doing a guest post gives me that high school anxiety of being a wallflower at a dance. Thanks for the extra effort!

How serendipitious! (hope I spelled that right - no spell check on the blog site!). But seriously, since I saw your first mention of the tomatoes, which are my very, very, very favorite food, I've been intending to write and ask for your Gazpacho recipe. So,what a treat to find it on the Mystery Lovers Kitchen blog. Which I didn't know about and now have bookmarked, too. And I've been eating mayo and tomato sammiches since I was able to walk. Very common fare in Texas. Along with Fried Green Tomatoes. Oh, here I go...better go grab some grape tomatoes and have a snack. Have a good week, everyone!

Wonderful looking tomatoes! I have only recently seen the dark purplish-green variety in our supermarkets, but the heirloom seeds have been available to home gardeners from specialist suppliers for a few years. I feel tempted to try my hand at growing them too, this summer. So far, I've only planted a couple of cherry tomato seedlings, but I'm not so sure they'll grow since Noodle dug them all up and I had to rescue the poor limp things and try again.
