Just about now, I start into the hate stage of my love:hate relationship with the birds. I have several bird feeders and faithfully provide seed and water so we can watch the birds as the seasons and populations change. But then they start messing with my tomatoes and I question any feelings of fondness.
several small tomatoes (1 1/2 cups of chopped tomatoes)
fresh ground black pepper
Thick slice baguette and toast.
