Ah, it's June.  If you know anything about gardening then you know  June is the best month for tomatoes.  I love tomatoes.  From where I stand I have the best view of our lush vegetable gardens. I pass by the tomato section daily, just waiting for them to turn from green to orange to RED!  I circle the garden several times waiting for just the right moment to tip toe in and snatch a few for myself.  I'm always a minute too late. Chef Jeremy Langlois always slips in just before me and gathers up the ripest, juiciest ones for some scrumptious dish to be served in one of our restaurants.  Whether you're craving a fresh Creole tomato salad or a crabmeat and tomato tower you can't go wrong with one of our delectable tomato dishes.  Like all of our vegetables, we grow them here to provide all our guests with the most amazing dining experience every time.  Hopefully one day I'll beat Chef to the garden gate and can sample a few for myself.

You're craving a juicy tomato dish now, aren't you?  It's your lucky day. 

What is your favorite meal made with tomatoes?  I'd love to try your recipe!
