I think I may make a tomato pie. I made one last year and loved it and I probably will have tomatoes still ripening.
Brownies of some sort, if course.

I tried a new recipe for black bean/corn salad this week, and we liked it a lot.Or I can do the crispy coleslaw.
And some brewed iced tea.

We haven't decided yet. I suppose we could bring the beans again if there's a demand. Otherwise, we'll come up with something different.

Either the old standby Mexican Layered Bean dip w/chips OR Tapenade w/pita chips. Which would everyone prefer?
