Ohhhh, that sounds good! Got a recipe you want to share for the enchiladas?

I'm rounding out the brisket with mustard potatoe salad and some rustic ranch beans with just a bit of 'bite' to them!

Katie! That relish sounds perfect and I even saved it too!

We're having MORE tomato pie - I never want to see another tomato pie for a very long time!

Patty I throw it in the crock pot add a little salt and pepper put on the cover and cook over night on low..about 2 hours before using I add 2 large yellow onions diced and cumin to taste..I leave the meat shredded in the meat juices and that is all I do..We love it this way and even omit the cumin and put the meat on rolls like a kaiser add bbq sauce, a sweet type and make pulled pork sammies with potatoe salad...left over meat sometimes is mixed with diced potatoes, then I add diced onion and put a hand full or so on a halved sheet of pastry the kind you use for a pie make a half moon out of it and bake til golden and it's like a pasty..

I have had my plants planted since April. I have had exactly 3 tomatoes.
I don't know what's going on.
I think for next year, I need to start a compost pile to really give goodness to the very sandy soil here.
But I am so sad to have to buy tomatoes with all the plants I have in the yard. Every thing else is going great guns, except for the jalepeno's that I've already described as being very green bell pepper in flavor at least I have some of those
