Raising Funds for the Valley Fire Victims: Trione Matches upto $10K


Lake County has been devastated by a fire that’s taken the homes of so many. Shelters have been created at various locations throughout Napa and Lake Counties for the families who have lost everything.

My best friends father had to evacuate his home from the Barryessa Estates. The devastation is shown all over the news and in photos posted across social media channels. My Aunts live in Lake County and thankfully their homes were not affected. They now go to the Moose Lodge to help out by bringing toiletries, toys for the kids, and money that they can spare.

In Geyserville we decided to help out in a way that will hopefully be really impacting- at Trione we are sending a link around to collect funds and the Trione family is Mary hong up to $10,000. So far we have raised $1,000 just overnight. Through social media and blogs, I know we will reach $10K.

Please help us by donating if you can, or passing this along:

It’s incredible to see so many people coming together to help these families.

Tomato Season!!

With the weather acting like it’s been Spring all along… the gardens are ready early for planting and prep. Fruits and veggies are coming into season early and the farmers markets are going to be opening soon!! Its a glorious time of year. At Trione we are hosting the Tomatomania crew and they’re going to be selling starters for your garden. They’ll have over 300 varieties and they just wrote a book: Tomatomania! It’s filled with creative recipes all revolving around the juicy tomato.

Here is one that I am excited about making this season:

Stone Fruit and Tomato Gazpacho

 

I am a big fan of gazpacho in all forms. Late peaches ripen about the same time as backyard tomatoes and this is one of my favorite summer time versions.

I always make a generous amount, but you can easily cut this recipe in half. I life to strain leftovers to use as a salsa-like topping on goat cheese and sandwiches.

 

  • 1 pound of peaches or nectarines, peeled and cut into small chunks
  • 1 large slicing cucumber, or 3 Persian cucumbers, peeled and cut into small chunks [note: slicers are what most large grocery store cucumbers and called]
  • ½ medium red onion, roughly chopped
  • 1 small jalapeño pepper, seeded and roughly chopped, or to taste
  • 2 pounds juicy tomatoes, cut into chunks, plus 1 medium ripe tomato for serving
  • 1 tablespoon extra-virgin olive oil, plus more for serving
  • 1 ½ tablespoons cider vinegar
  • 2 tablespoons freshly squeezed lime juice, more to taste
  • Kosher salt and freshly ground black pepper
  • 6 lime wedges, for serving
  • 2 tablespoons chopped basil or parsley, both if you have them

 

  1. Place ¼ cup each of chopped peaches and cucumbers, 2 tablespoons of red onion, and 1 teaspoon of jalapeño in a small bowl. Cover and refrigerate until ready to serve.
  2. Place 2 pounds of tomatoes, remaining peaches, cucumber, red onion, and jalapeño in a blender and puree until the gazpacho is as smooth as you’d like. (If you have a small blender, you may need to do this in batchers.) Pour the gazpacho into a large bowl and add the olive oil, cider vinegar, lime juice, and ¾ teaspoon each of salt and pepper. Chill for at least 2 hours or overnight. Taste again after chilling and add additional lime juice, salt, and pepper to taste.
  3. To serve, finely dice the reserved peaches, cucumbers, red onion, jalapeño, and remaining tomato. Add the basil or parsley (or both), mix to combine, and season with salt and pepper to taste. Ladle the chilled gazpacho into bowls, top with tomato-peach salsa, and drizzle with olive oil.

 

Prime picks: Juicy tomatoes such as Jaune Flamme, Red Boar, Missouri Pink Love Apple, or Chocolate Stripes are great here.

 

Best left on the vine: Paste or plum tomatoes.

Beauty in Wine Country

This is one of the {many} reasons I live here, and others move here. The flowering tress, the mustard, the nature. Pure serenity.
