“Somewhere, over the rainbow, way up high
There’s a land that I heard of, once in a lullaby
Somewhere, over the rainbow, skies are blue.
And the dreams that you dare to dream really do come true.”
-Wizard of Oz




  • arch of colors formed in the sky in certain circumstances, caused by the refraction and dispersion of the sun’s light by rain or other water droplets in the atmosphere.

Oh, I so remember watching the Wizard of Oz for the first time.  To this day, whenever a strong storm comes I cry “Auntie EM, Auntie EM!!”  And I still, when we go on a trip and I’m ready to be back in my own space, I click my heels three times and say “there’s no place like home”.   Whenever we are headed home in the car, Curtis says I’m like a horse going back to the barn….faster than ever and no stops.

And, that’s the truth of it, isn’t it?  There’s no place like home.  This rainbow greeted me last week when I got home.  It was so beautiful, and seemed to have it’s arms around our farm and home.   And it reminded me how lucky I am – but I feel like that every time I pull in the drive.  “There’s no place like HOME!”  Thank you RoyGBiv!!

What’s in the bucket:  potatoes, onions, summer squash, tomatoes, basil, cucumbers, parsley, okra.

How to Make It

Step 1

Prepare Piecrust: Process first 4 ingredients in a food processor until mixture resembles coarse meal. With processor running, gradually add 3 Tbsp. ice-cold water, 1 Tbsp. at a time, and process until dough forms a ball and leaves sides of bowl, adding up to 1 Tbsp. more water, if necessary. Shape dough into a disk, and wrap in plastic wrap. Chill 30 minutes.

Step 2

Unwrap dough, and place on a lightly floured surface; sprinkle lightly with flour. Roll dough to 1/8-inch thickness.

Step 3

Preheat oven to 425°. Press dough into a 9-inch pie plate. Trim dough 1 inch larger than diameter of pie plate; fold overhanging dough under itself along rim of pie plate. Chill 30 minutes or until firm.

Step 4

Line piecrust with aluminum foil; fill with pie weights or dried beans. (This will keep the crust from bubbling up.) Place on an aluminum foil-lined baking sheet.

Step 5

Bake at 425° for 20 minutes. Remove weights and foil. Bake 5 minutes or until browned. Cool completely on baking sheet on a wire rack (about 30 minutes). Reduce oven temperature to 350°.

Step 6

Prepare Filling: Place tomatoes in a single layer on paper towels; sprinkle with 1 tsp. salt. Let stand 10 minutes.

Step 7

Meanwhile, sauté onion and 1/4 tsp. each salt and pepper in hot oil in a skillet over medium heat 3 minutes or until onion is tender.

Step 8

Pat tomatoes dry with a paper towel. Layer tomatoes, onion, and herbs in prepared crust, seasoning each layer with pepper (1 tsp. total). Stir together cheeses and mayonnaise; spread over pie.

Step 9

Bake at 350° for 30 minutes or until lightly browned, shielding edges with foil to prevent excessive browning. Serve hot, warm, or at room temperature.
