Interest in Pinterest

Like so many others on the Internet, I have a huge interest in pinning on Pinterest. Now that I am on summer break, I am trying some of the many recipes pinned on my "recipe" board. Must say that the first one I tried is definitely a winner especially with the cherry tomatoes ready for picking.

A little olive oil, slice onions, cherry tomatoes and sugar

gives you a wonderful topping for buttermilk chicken.
