Savory Cheddar & Cornmeal Waffles With Green Tomato Salsa

November. November. November. No matter how many times I say it, I am having a hard time coming to terms with the fact that it is already November. Instead of rambling on in an attempt at trying to catch you up on everything that has been going on lately over here with me, I decided to take the time to sit down and edit all the photos I’ve accumulated over the last 2 months; I decided it would be more interesting to tell you through these photos. It’s been a whirlwind of freelancing, road tripping, hiking, completing another issue of our magazine, and continually trying to find myself through it all. Here are a few glimpses from the more scenic moments of the last two months:

I’m proud to say that I pulled the last of the tomatoes from my garden last week in an attempt to beat the first freeze and am still well stocked with tomatoes despite it being November. Here is a simple savory breakfast recipe I whipped up with the last of my garden’s bounty.

    Your last two months have been scenic alright; Stunning, in fact. I love the idea of utilizing green tomatoes in a fresh salsa. Though I am a big fan of pickled green tomatoes, truly tasting their acidic, fresh essence is also welcome.
