Tomato Fest Recipe Winner!

Charles Phillips is the winner of this year's tomato recipe contest!

There was stiff competition but only one winner at the end.

Charles calls it

"Winging it with Vegetables"

Start with broccoli, mushrooms and olive oil.

Spiralize a summer squash and add two kinds of tomatoes and half an onion.

Top it off with some shrimp, a bit of salsa, kale leaves, and mozzarella cheese.

Season with Italian herb blend, salt, pepper, and garlic.


The weather was beautiful and good fun and food were enjoyed by all!
